    Why the Kartboy love?

    I just threw my kartboy front endlinks in the garbage after about 10000km of hate. I forgot to put a washer on and the rubber ended up going over the bolt, which was great cause now i had a reason to replace them. The amount of noise that came from my front end completely took away from my driving experience. Why the love?

    To be fair, you have to take the credit for them not performing well if you installed them wrong and didn't lube them.

    You could have put the bushing back in...then reinstalled them correctly

    Because Kartboy's awesome, reputable, and they make great parts. That's why. Sounds to me like you're blaming kartboy's quality for a botched install.....

    So you installed the part wrong, ran that way for more than 6000miles, reaped the inevitable results, and it's somehow Kartboy's fault?

    Kartboy is an excellent company that makes great parts. Sounds like it's your fault for not installing the part correctly. SMH

    They're so good in fact, that I bet if there turned out to be actual damage to the item (as a result of the improper install), they probably would have gone ahead and replaced it for you free of charge.. even though it was no fault of their own.

    I have ZERO experience with Kartboy other than I hear them used a lot and that they're constantly praised.
    However, logic kicks in regardless and I can't help, but

    I have kartboy front and rear endlinks, I forgot the washer when I initially installed them on one side, thankfully you can buy replacement bushings for them. Once I installed them correctly, straight and tight there was no noise and perform great.

    Take the time to install them right.
