I haven't had any problem with the standard ballstuds myself so not really ready to change.

So, i got these lying around so i decided to use em in my 210

Lunsford Tie rod for 22

and i partnered it with these...



and the end result.





no issues so far and much cheaper than $80 buks......

Very cool, did you have any issues threading the ball studs into the metric holes? Going to LHS tomorrow and will look for these.

No issues, just that the TI is a bit long, if your heart can take it, you cut it shorter coz its a bit longer than the 210. so i think the only issue is when you try to adjust the buckles, it will be a bit tough though..... or you can over tighten it then screw back so that when you adjust it will be a bit smoother...

cheers!!!

I didn't know there had been an issue with the diff, but it makes sense.
I ordered mine from JEspares.com on the 2nd of february, and it was in stock at that time, but not enough to send one to me apparently.

I later mailed JE spares asking for an update and they responded that Durango had made some changes at the factory and that had caused the delay.

So I guess that means I've gotten one from the second batch. I cant feel any mentional binding at least. It's a bit tight but nothing I wouldn't expect from a gear diff that hasn't been run in yet.

Plus lunsfords service is awesome. I had bent 4 Ti turnbuckles, mailed them to lunsford in Oregon, 4 days later got brand new replacements!! I don't know if they do the same for the ball studs and all though!

Do not purchase the ti hinge pins! They bend mad crazy, must be made of noodles. The stock ballcups work perfectly with the Lunsford tie-rods. I popped more ballcups with the RPM pieces than stock.

I wouldn't call the Ti hinge pins "noodles". I've only bent one hinge pin on my 210 and that was from a massive hit due to getting hit from behind off a jump which sent the car off sideways. Broke the left rear hub in two pieces and the arm in half. The hinge pin was bent in the middle of the toe insert; which was still attached to that portion of the arm.

I also have the Lunsford turnbuckle and ballstud kit. Very nice pieces, but I had to purchase longer rear links as the kit 50mm links don't do well on the two outer holes. Not enough threads in the ball cup.

You also have to understand that the hinge pins aren't as thick as the turnbuckles. If you bend a turnbuckle on this car, Lunsford or not, you probably need to start driving something else.
