Max,
Thanks much for the suggestion. Point well taken. I also plan to cut out a beefier front bumper and I'm not very impressed with the front top links. It looks like a lot of you have gone to the more traditional ball stud/turnbuckle design for this item and I think I'll follow suit as soon as I can get off a new parts order.

The JR links work fine but add a lot of bulky unsprung weight compared to the normal ballstud. Some people use them with great success but either setup can win for you.

This is a buff bumper if want something better than stock.

Thanks for the bumper suggestion. I usually cut my own bumpers out of foam swimming kick boards and that way they conform as much as possible to the front profile of the body I use.

My biggest objection to the front links in addition to unsprung weight was the lack of easy fine tuning adjustment, though in all fairness the links were OK for what I wanted when I put the car on the setup station.

You can replace the threaded rod used for the JR links with a small turnbuckle. If you can't find one small enough to allow for adjustment get the dremel out!

Did u do this mod to keep your JR links? If so do have a brand/link suggestion on what links you used. I like the JR links, but hate the lack of ease for adjustability. I have dealt with worse stuff in life so I know I can survive.

I noticed you are running a 1 degree front pivot..... so that would toe out the front arms..... i assume this helps with turn in????

It normally ups responsiveness but decreases mid corner bite.
