Haha no. I haven't had the the time to put these in over the last couple of weeks anyway, so waiting on the rod ends isn't really a problem. The earliest I'll have to put these in is this Sunday. Hopefully the weather if good. The Strange units are nice, and making the rod ends really isn't a problem, just that I made them too long the first time for my application.

OK, as promised, here's a pic. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic. I'll try to get a better daytime one tomorrow. Expecting to have pricing worked out on these within a couple days, too.

Yeah true that. But foxes would be easier because you can buy extended eyelets from polyperformance. Probably a good thing for people to keep in mind for when they starting building their kits. Brackets are lookin good too!

I'll be offering extended rod ends if anyone wants to run Stange shocks. I suspect most will go with Fox, just because they're the most popular, but it still gives people another option.


Small update: I have almost all of the pricing together, and it looks like the kits will come in a little over my target, but they shouldn't be more than $275, which includes brackets, hardware, spacers, and gussets. Brackets will be powdercoated in a textured black, and whatever the final price, I'll be offering them unfinished for $20 less. I'm hoping to have the last one I'm waiting for within the next day or two. Also, I'm thinking I may offer options for hardware. I can do grade 8 steel with zinc plating, or grade 18-8 stainless. It looks like the upgrade to stainless would be about $15.

Just for clarification, are you talking about providing the spacers that go at the top between the coil bucket & the bracket or the "side to side" ones needed for the actual coil-over connections? I would assume your talking about the top ones, as depending on the CO's selected the "side to side" spacers would vary in size some.

Sounds like it's all coming together quite well!

Will there be an Option to purchase just the brackets and spacer? Reason being is I can get hardware at cost whenever o get around to installing.

LOL. When I was just going to do the brackets, people started asking about doing a whole kit. Now that I'm doing the whole kit, people are asking about doing just the brackets. I'll see about this. I want to offer what people are looking for, but too many options gets confusing and increases the possibility of a mistake come shipping time. When I post official prices, I'll figure out some options and we'll go from there. As far as the basic zinc plated hardware, I don't know how much you'd save yourself anyway, as I'm getting it bulk wholesale, but I'll let you know.

Logan03CO: I'm talking about both. I spec'd out a few different sizes based on the common shocks, so it would just be a matter of finding out what size someone wants with the kit.

Selling as a kit is how you should sell them, including hardware and everything. Only option id say would be finished (powdercoated) or unfinished otherwise it will be a pain in the *** imo

LOL. This opinion seems a little biased.

No updates. I'm still waiting on the one final price, and on my second set of extended rod ends so I can install mine. As soon as I have the final info, I will post. Hopefully within the next few days.

Picked up the new rod ends today. Hopefully the weather cooperates and I install this weekend.

Just curious, when these do infact go into production. Will they be made as ordered or when they run out thats it?? Because I am 100% positive these things are going to fly "off the shelf"
