no worries....these will be available for the forseeable future. unless the price of aluminum tube skyrockets, they quit making rod ends, or i die.........

Got mine in the mail quite a while ago,put them on the car a week ago.....had to cut my old adj bolts out with a zip disk,as well as the steel inserts from inside the rubber bushings.

car handles totally different now,i point it in a direction and it goes that way,no more'' rear wheel steering '' as I go around corners...and my mystery clunk in the rear is gone.....

nice product,easy to install.i used new grade 8 bolts,hardend washers and grade 8 "toplock"nuts to replace the stock bolts that I had to cut out(destroy) thanks to rust.

they work/fit great!

THANKS!!!

Any chance you'd post the size of these bolts to save me a trip under the car to measure? Thanks

go to the junkyard and find a set of stock stuff so its the correct size..... it hard to find 12mm hardened bolts at a hardware store.

Napa Auto has a whole lot of grade 8 metric hardware. Good luck the crack monkeys of the store care for that section. I would pull the junkyard stuff and match it. That is what I have to do.

no one has committed to giving me any money or a deposit as of yet.

i have sold several sets on a one by one basis now. i will quote anyone who wants to buy a set and not wait for the group buy prices.

We are evidently, having a fire sale people.....

the manufacturer got ahead on the shelf stock on these so here goes.

he has 3 sets of black powder coated arms ready to ship out and he wants them gone.

prices are as follows:

one set, $150 USD shipped to the 48 states.

2 sets shipped to the same address in 48 states, $280 USD.

3 sets shipped to same address in 48 states, $415 USD.

canada and other countries must inquire about additional shipping costs.

there are only 3 sets so if you wanted black powder coated arms, now is the time to buy, thats like 12 bucks off for the one set of arms depending on where you live in the u.s.

P.M. me if you are interested

SOLD

I mos def need this product. I'll be awhile to snag the funds up though. Work has been extremely slow, and my unemployment checks has been a joke. Give me about a month to get the funds. Also is to a good idea to get my bars raw otherwise unpainted? I live in the n.w. out here in Portland Oregon where we get plenty of rain.

another update..... only 1 black set left at sale price. if you wanted one, please send pm for payment, i have had about 6 people say they want one of them so first person that pays gets the last one.

also, the bars are available painted red for the same deal, 150 shipped to the u.s., all others pay shipping. i do not have a name or sample for the color, but i am working on that right now. will post pics asap.

thanks to all who bought my stuff, hope you love the bars and come back to see whats in store next !!

SOLD

pm received, sale pending on last set of black arms. thanks to everyone who showed interest or participated in my sale.

the red bars are just one set for now, still available at 150 shipped to the u.s.

so its basically 5 bucks more than gold ano, and you get free shipping in the u.s......

the pic of the red arms is for color only...these are not arms for a metro/swift

bob

SOLD
