I use summit racing all the time but this time the I also needed new shims and a few other parts that summit dose not carry. The are a good company to deal with and having them in town is an added bonus.

I have been thinking about making a set of heim jointed strut rods from 1" 6061 aluminum that I have laying around but I am just not sure about the forces involved and if the strength of the aluminum would hold up I may just look for some steel round stock instead. But i like the idea of removing as much friction from the moving parts as possible.

T6061 aluminium is on mine. It is strong enough for that application.

Great news that will give me an excuse to visit summit racing for heim joints and it will give me something to do in the meantime.
Thanks for the picture I like building things for half the price of off the self items that serve a purpose.
