Gerald, you need to tighten that driver side Hella. I had to tighten it best I could with my fingers to prevent it flying off.

I don't find this to be true. Blaine's not messing with anyone...he simply makes a statement. If you cannot understand or it's ambiguous, ask him or do some research.

You would be correct. The only reason and when I say only, that's precisely what it means, anyone would suggest that aluminum be used for links is some misbegotten notion that aluminum would LOOK good under there.

It is not a superior link material.

It is not stronger.

To get the strength needed, there is no weight savings.

It is way more expensive to use than any other suitable link material.

There is exactly zero that is Savvy about using aluminum as links.

I will strongly pursue the use of heat treated 4130 for link material. Jon has been running it in his lower links for countless difficult trails and it is beyond flawless in it's performance to weight ratio. His lowers are .250 wall x 1.75" diameter.

Currie makes 4130 barrels and I'll tig those onto the coped tube and then get the whole mess heat treated. The opposite end will be a slot with a double pinch bolt on top and a can of aluminum spray paint.

There is absolutely nothing that will change that. But, if your forehead is still round, keep smacking it into that wall.
I hate to pimp some one elses products in you thread, but the talk of aluminum links immediately made me think of EVO's Envy Links and LinXLoks. Have you ever seen these? Clearly it can be done, but I wonder if the market for these would be high enough to make it worth your while.

Edit: Not welded barrels, but aluminum links. Thought I would clarify before getting flamed.

i agree, aluminum control arm links wouldn't be too good on a TJ. might work on your RC buggy tho

those who have machined aluminum vs steel vs chromoly would understand...aluminum is just too soft. not to soft for the rocks, just too soft to thread it reliably for something like this. and you can't weld aluminum to threaded steel inserts....so....

o0o heat treated 4130 would be sexy

Do you have any idea what Gerald would do to that 800 dollars worth of lower arms in one trip out in JV?
