Arrow Our #1 Link Bracket!

3 months ago we introduced these and they have taken over! These are now our Number 1 selling Link Bracket, it seems that many people agree with me sometimes ;)



Thats right! The Heims are placed so the bolt is vertical and the Heim is in a horizontal orientation.



What this does is transfer the load to the strongest part of the joint. Vertically mounted joints take lateral loads through the bearing races and that just helps them wear out sooner. Think about it, your shocks and limit straps absorb the up and down motion, the races are forced to absorb the lateral motion and act as limit straps.



Setting up all of your joints this way is not a practical solution due to the vulnerability of the bolt but it makes perfect sense for the uppers.

Another benefit of using these is that you can increase triangulation by not having to deal with space needed for the bolt in between the joints and you can place them very close together. We leave 1/2" between them.



We are making them for any flat mounting surface and also in the shape of our housings, they could be easily modified to fit any other surface.

Think in new ways, think it through, it makes more sense to do your uppers this way!
