I dig the ST mount, simple and easy! wonder if those 2 round washer/plate things will start to mushroom after a while though?

that looks like it's almost perfectly designed to press a pair of BMW control arm bushings into (not that the dog bone really needs a poly bushing in it but you could)

Why did he go solid?
His Dad works for Chrysler so discount, plus it's fun. It's extremely comfortable and scoots pretty well for its size, I dig it.

Why not go solid?

Never mind, just talked to rob. Though he went solid all around. Didn't realize the bushing was still there on the one side

I guess we'll find out if it holds up over time. John was pretty confident in it. I think he said he was going to refine it a little bit then sell them. I don't really remember though if that was discussed.

those could be plenty thick enough its hard to get an idea of scale from the picture, more of a pondering than an actual worry. especially if there is already a bushing on the other end as Jordan said above it shouldn't be an issue at all.

Morning all

Epic camping weekend was epic. Had a blast cruisin some back roads up north and seeing the sand dunes and just have a good ole time

Clayton got lucky since he drove us around sat so we got like 200 pictures of his car in different locations with all the colors and crap. Quite enjoyed myself.

Also at test lab again this morning watching more airbags go boom.

(Tried posting once via phone and seems like it failed so if this is a repost my bad)

makes sense on the 200 then. My gf's brother bought one, they are decent quick, just a lot of other vehicles available for the $$.
