With the nut method, could you direct me to which nuts are appropriate to use? Thanks!
When stripped - go ahead and replace them with new ones. I had the same problems early on... They will last until the next "visit with a wall".
Option - Some guys just use the 3mm spacers on each side of the adjustment nut....
Some guys use the turnbuckles from the Pro4 I beleive ( Fast Harry ??? )
The problem with the "nut solution" is finding a LHT 4mm nut? RHT isnt a problem obviously. Even a LHR tap was hard for me to find at a reasonble cost.
I think the problem is in the plastic cup ends...
I had troubles finding a good replacement turnbuckle set-up for the rear of the R40 as it uses a very thin adjustment nut on the turnbuckle becuase the distance between both plastic ends is minimal.
I still run the stock set-up now and just replace them after any major incident.
