both tre have threads on each end (unless I missed where you used 2 rh (or lh)) tre. build it with the middle bolt (threads) removed. You can still adjust the rod without it, no?

Ah.

I see what you meant. The reason that I have the middle bolt is because the whole unit has to clear the center link. The part on the left with the jog in it has to remain stationary, so the tre is only there to attach it to the center link. It cannot be rotated because of clearance issues. There will be a jam nut holding it stationary. The center bolt and adjuster sleeve will be used to adjust toe.

yes, but its currently sitting at stock height. I relaxed the torsion bars to allow the suspension to travel a little easier and give a bit better ride.

I've been looking at it, thinking, looking at it, thinking.

I'm going to do something different. This just isn't cutting it for me. I want to get rid of the weak link, not wonder if I did.

Really what I think I need to do Jeremy is get a couple of 60's

Its not a matter of time. Its a matter of money. I don't want the "same old" so my plans for a swap entail waiting until after a certain gets done planning a wedding

Word.

I do a lot of web-fabbing by reading a lot of other builds. I like to think of new ways to do stuff, although, as my current rig shows example of, that isn't always the best way. In fact, I've learned a lot about what doesn't work well by putting it on my rig. LOL

I figure by the time I'm ready to swap, I'll be able to hit the nail on the head.
