Mis-alighnment spacers ?????

I want to get some 1" heims, with mis alighn spacers for my radius arms

Do all of the spacers (for the same size heim) provide the same amount of mis-alighnment? Or do you get more angle the smaller the bolt size?

Heims allow about 22.5*?? About how much do the spacers add to this?

Thanks

Joe

My understanding is the mis-alignment spacers allow you to get that full 22.5* of movement. If you install the heim with a tab on either side you would be limited on your movement since more than likely the heim would hit the tab before using up its full travel.

So what if you used, a couple pices of thiner walled tubing the same diameter as the bolt.

Not as good as a mis-spacer, but would work better than just clamping the hiem right?

I don't see why that shouldn't work, provided you can find a piece of tubing with the correct dimensions and without it costing much more than just ordering misalignment spacers.

But "high" mis-align. spacers that go to a smaller bolt diameter. do they give more angle deflection?

I have a set of james duff arms, with a 1" heim on one end, and my susp will flex and tigten (or loosen) the ends because they don't allow enough flex.

you have regular mis alignment spacers and HI misalignment...the regular keep the same size bolt and give you a little more misalignment, the hi misalignments step down one bolt size and give you more misalignment...

Call the guys at PolyPerformance. Tell them what you are trying to do and they can tell you how much misalignment you will get either way.
