...when has "just fine" ever been enough for me? The answer is never so I just bought some 1.25in FK JMX16 rod ends with a 76,205lb static radial load. I dropped somewhere in the neighborhood of $1700 on the rod ends, tube adapters for 2in OD .25in wall DOM tube, misalignment spacers, and jam nuts. My links are going to be made out tube bigger than anything on my chassis It's just gonna be plain nasty and that's the way I like it.

So – I guess we can all assume that the carpet/drug dealing business continues to be fruitful… [img]tongue.gif[/img]
Seriously though, I think I need to switch careers to whatever you are doing…

Im glad your doing all the foot work, cause I will need a model in a year or two! Hopefully you'll have all the kinks worked out. Dennis

From the sounds of it, I don't think any kinks will be possible. I'm all for stout, and this is serious overkill even by my standards. I'm impressed.

dude, i use 3/4" FK ends on my steering junk and just got a pair to make my dad's new tie-rod and my new rear track bar for the coil conversion. They're nasty big in the 3/4 variety, nevermind 1.25".... you'll dig 'em
