Whipped up a trans/rad arm crossmember this weekend and started final assembly on the front end. I was going to extend the steering temporarily but got talked into building dual swing steer.. can anyone recommend good, cheap heims or a reasonably priced distributor?

Does anyone know who makes these Bumpstops? They were given to my uncle form one of his rock crawler buddy’s... they’re all aluminum and don’t have any markings...

I’ve read a couple threads about swing steering and it seems 1.25x .250 wall tapped for 7/8” heims is the way to go. I checked a couple sites to get a concept of price but didn’t find much. Anyone recommend a metal supplier along the route: Corona to San Clemente to ramona? Or nearby areas

if you want bearings that will last, get NHBB or Aurora or FK in that order. and you will drop way more then coin for the top 2. but they will last. i still have some NHBB that have been in use on my play truck going on 20+ years.

the harder to replace location heims i use them.
