Looking for the ultimate in radius rods look no further. These high clearance lower rods are built from 7075-T6 aluminum and feature over an inch of ground clearance. This is aircraft grade aluminum and pretty much the strongest aluminum option for our sport. The ends house FK uniballs, the same series joints that the trophy trucks are running, there is nothing better. The middle (toe) link and upper radius rod are solid 1-1/8" 7075-T6 aluminum. What sets apart from the norm in the industry are the joints that we use, we use the absolute highest quality joint on the market. The JMX series of joints from FK is something that we've had a tremendous amount of sucess with over the years. These joints use a fabric based teflon liner known as a PTFE liner. The inner joint housing is compressed to create a preload on the ball that will stay tight roughly 3 times longer than a standard injected teflon rod end, which is standard in the industry. We do offer boots for these joints at an addition price of $6.50 per joint, this increases the life of the joint even more by keeping the debris out of the joint. Don't be fooled by cheap imitations using inferior joints and inferior materials. You may pay less at up front but over the course of a year after those cheap joints wear out you're going to have more time and money invested than doing it right the first time. The spacers in each joint are 303 stainless steel so strength and corrosion won't be an issue.
This will allow for full adjustability of camber and toe while installed sitting at ride height.
Our business and products are based around using American products and material, we do not source cheaper parts or materials from overseas.
Here are some basic strength differences between 6061 and 7075 aluminum and how much stronger our lower radius rods are being made from 7075. What does this mean? It means ours won't elongate, stretch, bend, dent and even scratch like 6061 will. LIFETIME WARRANTY on our aluminum parts.
