Good call on the AE side links...I just verified that they do in fact fit quite perfectly. I happened to have a few sets sitting around and after I saw this post I went and tried it.

Every now and then I get surprised on what I find out here...

Looks like anyone having issues has a good solution as the AE side links are pretty robust!

Thanks again...

i heard when he was younger, his mom had him lay on the counter with his head by the sink so she could use his fro like a brillo pad when doing the dishes.......

I've had a lot of nicknames throughout the years. Some of which I won't repeat here.. because even I have some tact

Big Perm is a first for me.. but I know my dad used to rock a serious perm back in the 70s/80s. I see a new photo hack coming soon...

Has any one tried replacing the O rings on the front with
washer to stiffen the front of the car.

Need to make car more smother and easier to drive in modified
(7T delta motor), the car is very good in 10.5T blinky.

I actually have 2 o rings in the front of my car. They are smaller and stiffer and I actually have to push the front end togther a little bit to put the screws in.

Larry,

I am running the front of the car wide with 2 green O rings and
gold front springs.

Do you know what the spring rate is equivalent to (0.018 or 0.020)

I remember Larry saying all of the top front springs appeared softer than the asc 0.020. I personally never tried... I've always used asc front springs.

Softer <--- .018, copper, silver, gold, .020 ---> Harder

That's what I've found also. All three T.O.P. springs are softer than .020
