No problem. One thing we have done in the past is run HDPE runners down the link on the bottom side, helps them slide over rocks, etc.

Again, just a suggestion.

I run 7075 on my jeep and have not had a problem however I ran DOM on my buggy and bent them.

It is amazing how much lighter the aluminum is. I run a smaller diameter on the uppers to help keep the cost down.

Dont change your mind on the aluminum. You will be happy with them

thanks everyone,,,,,,.About the links,i will end up running the aluminum links. i bought the material and if it dont work i will change it.

I think the aluminum will be the right choice. I watched a tierod made out of 1.5" diameter aluminum get smashed into a rock all the way to the diff cover,,,,,,when the guy finally backed up it went back to straight.

Back to the jeep, been trying to find a intake and oil pan for my motor so i can keep going forward. I think i am going to try to cut and weld my aluminum oil pan myself. I wonder if i can buy a oil pickup for the camaro LS1?

The pickup shouldn't be too hard to find. I got my LS1 oilpan, windage tray, and pickup used for about $200, that seems to be what they usually go for. Are you looking for an LS1 intake too? They usually sell for about $50, but then you'll need to adapt your accessories too. You could buy a idler pulley relocation bracket and cut down the alternator bracket but that leaves the alternator up as high as the truck intake. I picked up a full set of LS1 accessories/brackets, but the complete setup is fairly hard to find and usually pricey.

By the way, the Juggy looks very nice, good work.
