You really just don't get it do you? I don't care if Jesus himself made the rod ends... if you're buying them through Ballistic don't count on seeing your money or parts again.

willypscustoms those are some nice looking joints at a very nice price i wish i had the cash to order them right now.

DrVic723 All I can do is repeat what they themselves have told me on numerous occasions. BTW what do you care? We are one of your WD tier 7 dealers. If you have a problem just PM me and I can correct the mis-information.

USA made product is important in these times IMO. FK and Aurora make awesome products, and I had them in the back of my mind when I was writing this. We plan to include them in our line-up in the near future.

I would double check about country of origin on that stuff before you go making claims... I believe this has been discussed before.

I highly recommend having them cut custom parts!
On 3/8 plate it usually falls around the .005" range depending on the the batch and type of steel and how well we've got everything dialed in.

Yeah when we hopped in and he held the traction control button down for about a min he said it was so that it was 100% off. If you only push it, it only turns off 30% and I knew when he pegged it around 50 mph and broke it loose I was in for a wild ride.

DrVic723 UPDATE:

I just got off the phone with our customer who has determined that these joints will be suitable for their production vehicle. This also implies that they passed lab and field testing without indecent. I'll be working on some numbers today, and I should have a pre-order on the web page by the end of the day complete with pricing and current lead times.

Goatman I replaced a few 1.25" rod ends before KOH this year because they had a small amount of slop in them......barely could tell, but they do wear out. But, they were around 10 years old.


Also, I know some guys want 3/4" bolts, maybe because that's what they are already running, but a grade 8 or F911 5/8" bolt torques to over 200 ft lbs, and if torqued properly that bolt/joint isn't going to move. But, maybe your rigs are a lot bigger.

rzmod ill take 4 in 5/8....

DrVic723 I'll try to get this worked out today or tomorrow.

That's the idea anyway. Once again we need to test them out as well as hear back from the field test to see how well they actually perform. However I am quite confident that they will do quite well.

Nope. The spanner nuts are POST machine treated, machined from condition N, then a double temper is done once the part is completed. The bodies are machined from 4340 HTSR though...

No, our customer takes care of that as well as the airbrush painting etc.
