    Would it not be better to get the Self-lubing Bronze ones??

    I have no clue about this stuff so just a simple question.

    You could get one male and one femaleand put it together like that if you need it really small.


    To judman13 it has a carbon race so you don't have to lube the bearing. Also the load for that ball end max is like 3900 lb's

    Normal threading for me since I am going to do what was suggested and thread a male and femal together. The point of getting a left and right threaded ball link though is so if you have a rod with an adjustment you can twist the rod to change the length instead of having to take the whole thing off the car.

    Good news, bad news and excelent news

    Bad news is I got my endlinks today and I should have gone one size larger (the size 808 bought) as the bolts are a touch too big to go through the eyelette so I don't want to use these for my front sway bar (for those who don't know rwd cars usually always have a larger front bar and a smaller rear bar, opposite that of fwd)

    Good news is since the rear bar on my car is a twig (maybe 10-15mm bar at the most) I am just going to use these for my rear bar so they don't go to waste.

    Excelent news and thise applies to everyone is I did some more research and I found some stuff that will allow you to have a smooth center rod as opposed to the threaded rod 808 used (sorry I think the smooth rod looks a whole lot better) I will let every one know how it works out as I am going to use it to build a camber link for my rx7

    I didnt know where to get the female center. Especially in the size that i needed. So I went with the male thread so I could cut it down to get the size that I wanted. (That and I have a 6 foot piece so i can make more if needed)
