Rod ends, boots and spacers arrived very promptly (as always) from McGill Motorsports back up in Scotland


Along with the stainless LH/RH threaded rod I bought I made up some links...


OK, these are just what they looked like mocked up.....the finished articles have the side spacer INSIDE the boots and the threaded rod has been cut down by 15mm each side. This gives a 'between centres' measurement of 70mm which, when combined with the U-shaped mounts will give an acceptable ARB-lower arm distance. Also had to weld an M6 nut in the middle of each rod as I mistakenly thought the rods came with them. A quick zip up with the MIG sorted the problem

Made 2 of the U-shaped mounts but the cold in the garage forced me to flee into the house for the night .

Will finish off the remaining 2 over the weekend and get them fitted...

TT
