Default Inner upper link mounts

Are the new inner upper link mounts available already? If so what's the part #? Price?

Hey Johnny I will tell you what I always like to keep extra:

front arms
front c-hubs 4" and 6'
extra knuckles
Extra lower shock mounts
extra body mounts for front
extra rear hub incase the screw digs in or loosens up
Last but not least extra outdrive cups

You can probably get away with just the first three but I would like to have all of these J.I.C. You probably will not break much of anything though, the car is super tough.

Hope this helps.

Thank you Hawk, that helps because now I have an idea of what to keep around and what to get when they are available.

Granted he's been in FL till recently, but I stayed on the phone with him as he walked to the back to check the latest invoice. You got my hopes up Fred!

LOL, sorry Andrew, I'll let you know what I get in my order tomorrow. My order was processed right when the shipment came in mid last week. When I spoke to Ralph on Monday there were only 2 items on my order that didn't ship because they were still on backorder and the clamps and weights weren't them.

They clamps and weights were not in this order is what I was told last week when I called as soon as it showed up. They wont show up on backorder yet as they are not in the system yet since they have not had them.

Sorry

I use the 9551 servo in my TC. No issues yet. Plenty fast and plenty of torque.

Don't forget belts, the xray belts wear out pretty quickly

Also not a bad idea to keep some lower suspension holders( the plastic ones that hold the hinge pins in place). Over time they get tweaked and can affect toe and droop.
