Looks in parts box... sees a plethera of spring-steel doggies... :P

The beauty of being an ex-835 racer is all the left over bits still in my box.

No worries... I like Uncle Crash also have the same doggies you have on your car...

Those spring steel dogbones are rare commodity items.

Yes, that's good. 2 piece pipes are the ones with the silicone joint.

I think more rare is this tool from Hudy (106000) to take out the pins from the doggies...



Any connections Mark?

And also helps confuse you as to why you can't get the setup right when you forgot to put the shims!
