Long week at work, but finally getting **** together for the car and sipping a Little Sumpin' Sumpin' makes things better.
Got an email from Clint @ TiC with a tracking number for my replacement lateral links. Looks like they will be here Tuesday. Apparently these ones will have a significantly thicker "ring" that holds the bushing and stronger/thicker welds as well. Pictures to come when I get em'.
Also received my wheel spacers, which come packaged with wheel studs. I wanted ARP's regardless, but just figured I could at least see how they compare.
Comparison between an ARP & an Ichiba stud.
Not only does the ARP have more thread and a nice knurl to help get the lug started on the threads, the forging looks SIGNIFICANTLY better. I would be ok running these, but I'm sticking with the ARP so it's a once and done kind of deal. So if anyone needs studs, let me know.
Now to decide if I just want to pick up some sedan hubs to make the swap easier...
