Hydro Ram Clevis Differences

I read in a thread a while back about someone recommending the POS clevises over the PSCs. What differences exist between companies? PSC sells them for $100, Stazworks has them for $65 (I think), POS for ???

I'm hoping that these are interchangeable as I've got a PSC ram and don't know whether most of the other rams on the market use the same bolt size and thread.

When did $58 become a whole lot of $$$?

Stations have misalignment washers and step down socket head cap screws so the heim only contacts unthreaded shank. I think those where why I bought his when I was searching, eitherway I have a set of his and they are definitely worth the small amount of money he asks for them considering machining time, supplied hardware and service.

No experience with PSC's or Staz's though.

Last time I got POS's they were $85 with the misalignment spacers bolts and allen screws. The clevis is drilled through so you put the supplied allen bolt through them into the cylinder rod. This is nice because you don't have to use spacers like some of PSC's to get both of your clevis' to line up in the same plane... This make sense? Pretty sure everybodys cylinders are 3/4 16 tpi threads.

I did it the cheep way from rockstomper. I usualy build my own tabs but these are to cheep to pass up. I don't see why you would want to add one more threaded connection that can just come loose on you...



Teardrop tab. Used for building shortie tierod assemblies. $4 each
