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

i am still selling the bars on a one by one custom order basis. i never got anyone to commit to a deposit for the group buy, and many people have pm'ed me and said they do not want to wait, so i have just been getting them one at a time. right now i am unsure of shelf stock and would need to have your color choice and zip code for a price quote.

thanks for asking!

If I wasn't leaving for vacation tomorrow I would buy them. Terrible timing. Someone else but them to make this deal happen.

i am having some issues with my sprint email service and did not get any notifications about my weekend pm's until a few minutes ago.

sorry for any mixups this may have caused

i have answered all of the pm's now

i cant get ahold of the shipper so it is probably too late for the sale to go through

i will contact the parties involved after i get him on the phone

i should have known something was wrong....my phone was being too quiet

since my builder is making these arms for several cars now, and he is making them for some rally applications in chrome-moly, i thought i would offer that option to anyone who was interested.

i surely cant see anyone bending these arms under normal use but incase you do or are worried you might, they are now available in 1" diameter .065" wall chro-mo

there will be an additional 35 us dollar charge for the upgrade to chrome moly bar stock if interested

again, thanks to all for the purchases so far this year

bob

Update on these parts....

I will not be selling these any longer.

As you might have guessed, I drive the ever loving sh!t out of this car.... About 2 weeks ago, I hit 325,000 miles on the odometer. Some time earlier, I had noticed a clicking sound behind me in left to right switchbacks.

I got under the car and found out I had enough wear in the rod ends to give a small amount of free play causing the clicking sound. Only 2 of the rod ends had discernible wear and the boots on those 2 ends were damaged. The boots had detiorated for a reason I haven't yet figured out, and 2 of them were torn significantly allowing dirt inside.

Having had a brain fart when I installed my bars, I forgot to record the exact mileage. Instead I have a date they were installed. I also have time stamped photos of the odometer for kicks. So I know I have somewhere in excess of 50 to 60,000 miles on the arms driving cross country, in snow and salt, on the beach, and daily commuting on very crappy roads in Florida.

Being race parts, I think they held up ok. I am not satisfied with ok. I have re-engineered the arms with much stronger 3/4" rod ends and larger 1" hex tubing. I have a set on my car now and have confirmed the parts fit with no issues. The rod ends are almost too big to fit in the inside mount pockets. they are also very tight, and are making a slight bit of noise through the arc with suspension travel. they should wear in in a few weeks and quiet down permanently.

The new arms will be available in black powder coat only. There will be only one length for all years now and they will be set to the stock length if you provide me with your cars year before ordering.

Due to the size of the new ends, the new arms are a little heavier now. 2 pounds, 2 ounces each.

The price has increased due to the increased material costs, but not really due to the powder coating being standard. $160 USD priority shipped in the continental usa.

I am going to post the new pics and prices in a new thread in the regular for sale section because I have yet to organize any group sales and I think it belongs there.

Thank you for your business and let me know if you ever need replacement parts for your arms. I can get boots, rod ends, or tubes if needed.

i will be selling the used gold arms i r&d'd on my car after i get new ends and boots installed. i will post when i get them ready

Here are the pics of the new arms. Rod ends are 3/4" Teflon lined chromalloy with a 28,000# static load rating. The rod is 1" t6-6061 hex aluminum alloy.

Why must you tempt me when money is tight. I might work done overtime and see how my check is in two weeks.

Lol..... Sorry man, it's was his idea....really

I have decided to end my auction on eBay and have him list them directly so we avoid paying eBay and PayPal....twice, as we are business partners in this anyway.

For anyone interested right frickin now , he has posted up the auction and accidentally list the first set at 145 shipped, a quick buyer may be able to buy it now before he changes the pricing to the aforementioned 150...... Jus sayin'

He is aware of the mis- price and he will probably fix it sometime today

As soon as the first set sells, they will revert to the normal 169.99 eBay pricing. The 150 I have listed here is only for forum members........

Thanks to everyone for your support and purchases

Ya, that's USD.

180 euros....OUCH

That's the whole reason we are here man.

The few people making these are building inferior products and or charging ridiculous prices.

It pissed me off to the point I actually did something about it....lol

For anyone in the USA.... These cannot be beaten value for product received......

Overseas....shipping can get stupid but the product is still priced right.
