Should have used at least 7/8. 3/4 are kind of small for a link rod-end. Seen a couple break.

4- link, huh, cool

I think the build bug has started to bite this spring, look what 034x4 did to his truck. lol
I even went and stared at my truck yesterday for a half hour trying to figure out what I could make for it.

what are you gonna do for rear springs?

Hey, I'll buy those chevy leafs from you.
