Yeah, I guess I should change those upper camber links around . You are the second person to notice. I bought some of the Kyosho harder ball cups that Mark D suggested and haven't had a chance to change them out. I am of the opinion it doesn't matter since the geometry is symmetrical either way. Anyway I'm hopeful of finding a reverse thread 3mm Tap before I do that project. The self tapping threads are a bit tight when adjusting the turnbuckles the cup sometimes pops off the balls. By pre tapping it they should turn more easily.

Use wax, this is what Lunsford used to supply, and maybe still does. Black grease works well also, but the wax stands up a bit better over time, IMO.

I don't like tapping because tapped threads are usually deeper than tie rods, so it ends up being loose, and turning too easily.
