The SPL rear traction rods are retardedly expensive. I don't want a cheap piece of shit chinese rod end either. Anyone have a suggestion? I have SPC rear tracton rods now which I bought because I didn't want rod ends + winter. Well this car doesn't see winter anymore so less concern. I made the mistake of tightening the arm in the air awhile back and tore the bushing. D'oh.

buy a chinese one then put aurora heims in it. or i can hook you up with a company that will make them from scratch with aurora bearings. they should be cheaper than spl stuff. he will also powder coat them whatever color you want.

I am wondering if I can just get heims for my SPC pieces. The end with the torn bushing looks basically like a heim joint. Where do you recommend I get them from? I know I will need spacers on either side of the heim but I can deal with that. I did bring my damaged link to work in hopes I could identify the thread size.

i believe Fortune Auto is making traction rods now as well.

Liz got a set of front tension rods from SPL and they are beefy as all hell great quality would be hard to buy any suspension links that aren't SPL from this point on.

I own SPL front tension rods already and have been very happy with them. I don't buy into the "titanium hardware" bullshit etc. When I bought my tension rods they were just well made no bling pieces of gear. Fortune auto is about $200 as well, and given the option I would buy SPL.

There has to be someone selling something that doesn't suck dick for 150 or so bucks.

Edit; to hell with it. I am going to wait and order SPL arms.
