I always spit a little on the threads. Seems to help them thread in easier.

Put Associated clear grease on the tie rod threads, before threading on ball cups. That makes it easy to install and tune when the time comes.

i've got the duratrax ball cup tool, that thing works awesume. I just put the ball cup in it, get the first thread of the turnbuckle started, then hold the turnbuckle with the AE factory team turnbuckel wrench (if you have an ae car) and start cranking on the call cup tool.

One side is like clockwise and other is counter. There easier to put on with a turnbuckles tool. Also what I do is make sure you thread them as far as possible that you won't bend or break em.
