I got a Marlink last year and I was thinking that the Ends are FJ80s. If anyone is running Marlink can you confirm that they are FJ80s for me. I just got my OTT Arms and the Ends off of my Marlink are to Big...I tried to Call Marlin for the past hour and his phone is busy...LOL

So Thanks in Advance!

One thing to look for when buying a steering kit is a complete kit. Be it Marlin, OTT, or whoever, get the entire kit from the same place and it's more likily to have the correct parts that work together.

I know a guy who bought ALLPRO high-steer and the center link hit the steering arm when it is compressed. You told him to buy AllPro springs. What is different about your springs verses others.

If their tapped out to fj80 ends, why won't
the marlink fit. The marlink fit just fine
with my allpro arms. Maybe camo can come up
with a suggestion, convert to ifs maybe... <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0">

Hi Guys

We don’t sell rod ends because we are not an auto parts store. I can send ends that I buy but if you break one do you really want to wait for me to ship you a new one or would you rather just go to your local dealer. As far as Big Daddy’s kit goes I think we will find that all is good

Thicker springs, steering box location, spring pin location and shimms all come into play together. Any one of these can cause problems. We design our stuff to work together but when you combind parts from different kits problems can happen. If you use our springs, hangers, steering and mount the box per our instructions it works fine.

Well when he bought kit it you did not say a thing about the springs, you ask for the credit card number and sent the product. when he call you the very next day you said you need to run our springs. I have your kit and I run it with Alcan springs. No problem He runs your kit with Alcans and they hit. If thre was a chance they would not have worked correctly why did you not tell him to start with? He would have purchased your front springs he is running them in the rear. And why is your only fix buying your springs? Do you make a set of arms that is not drilled for the ends, if so how much.
