    More power top you if you have the means and skills to make em! Its really a simple piece, and yes, I balked at the price for a bit of simple metal, As I thought, "I can make this" but without a welder or tools like a tap and die, i had to suck it up and pay.


    Although, if you make a second set of front spacers, this sucker here might be interested in taking it off your hands!

    The fronts will be coming in today, and should have a new nut with them. I'm going to use that to find the size materials I need, and see if I can find the matching coupler/rod. If I can, I'll make a few extra sets for any that want some, pending moderator approval. Rules state I can sell one without question though.

    Not looking to make money, just cover cost of materials and shipping.

    I also looked for the extensions. But Primitive was the only company I could find making them. I think Primitive might be more conservative then some of the other companies, but the more research everything think ~1" lift on stock dampers is going to push the stroke length to the limit. That's one of the reasons I just went with Kings which lift just 5/8".

    An update on the DIY extensions. Turns out, the thread is M12x1.25. Neither coupling nuts nor threaded rod seem to exist in that thread pitch. So a buddy of mine tig welded three nuts together, and then tig'd them to the top of a bolt.



    He runs a fabrication business (I've talked about him on here before.) I talked to him about the extensions, and he's going to look into getting some material and machining some for us. The tig welded nuts definitely work, and while I love the raw look of them, they don't have the "finished" look a business should be putting out on a production level.

    Now I need to put the front end of my car back together tomorrow morning before work. Yay...

    I seem to recall certain cars using a m12 x 1.25 wheel stud, if that's true a open lug nut and a short wheel stud could connect the rods.

    A lug nut is not long enough by itself, so you'd still have to weld at least two together. And that's very difficult on a lug nut because one side is always either tapered or round to center the wheel.

    Rallybourne - I was thinking an extended length open ended lug nut. The lugs I have in my track car are threaded all the way thru. My wheel studs are super long on there and the lug nut threads down.
