I have the new price on the bars. Unfortunately, the price has gone up to $145 Canadian.

I am just getting ready to place an order so if you are interested in a set, please send me a pm.

I will need either full payment or a deposit of $25 to reserve a set for you. Please make payment to: macaid@sympatico.ca

Thanks

They are easy to install, a simple replacement. Yes, you will still need the excentric bolt. The only problem most people have is removing the old toe bars.

joe, they are your brainchild and all that (i love the way they work on my twincam vert) but i did not use the eccentric bolt at all. as a matter of fact, i had to disfigure and dismember the eccentric bolts with a 4" cutting wheel on a die grinder to get them out. and that after hours of heating with a torch. the only reason i didn't torch them off was that the stamped steel the mount is made of might have melted before those heavy bolts.

when i bolted on the new toe bars i used nice 4 1/2" stainless steel bolts centered up in the mounts with big flat washers. there was plenty of adjustment, even for the modified rear toe to match the whiteline caster kit on the front suspension.

zero flex in the tubing and the bars hold perfectly in hard, high g cornering. they took the last bit of imprecise steering out of my car. now it is extremely predictable in the turns when the car is right on the edge. it lets me select the rear end line at will without any dither from flexing rear toe bars.

That's stone gorgeous, T3. I hate you. :-)

LTLSU, do you know the specs on the rod ends? What's the hole diameter and the thread pitch? Wand to get sealed ends but I don't want to take it apart twice if you happen to know the specs. Thanks.

It's a 10mm rose joint.

The boots are about 3 or 4 euro, and I can't find a source on this side of the pond. :roll:
