    Modified (stronger) adjustable control arms

    To address some complaints about noisy rod ends we looked into the issue and came up with a solution. These new parts replace the standard rod ends with teflon lubricated, aircraft grade, ones so there should be no more issues with noise and there should even be more strength.

    If you have the old style there's nothing to wory about, they're not junk, I've had mine on for years with not so much as a peep from them but others seem to have more issues.

    To get these new sets out there and get some reviews I'm running a quick group buy.

    $190 shipped for the first 10 to jump in on this. Once we get to that number I'll order the parts for them, modify what needs to be modified, and ship them out to you guys. Paypal is Terry@maximalperformance.com.

    AWD or FWD. Either works and will be the same design.

    Sorta off topic but I also carry these for 1st gen DSM's if you guys ever get a customer than needs them.

    How about for us that just want to replace the rod ends? Will your new ones interchange, and can we get a set of ends only?

    Yeah, I will be offering the rod ends only. I have to look into pricing again but let me know if you're intersted for sure. You should be able to re-use the spacers and hardware so that should help the cost a bit.

    I will want these, but I have to get a couple of other things done first. Which means, at my glacial pace, it's probably next year for the new rod ends. By which time my spacers will be fused to the ends that are on the car.

    They're stronger and with the teflon lining in the joint the squeaking some people get is eliminated.
