Not rubber. Polyurethane. The Johnny Joints are essentially the same as the R joint. They had the R-joint on display at summit. I don't remember if they were greasable or not.

I used the LH & RH...

Just following up in case anyone wants to do similar as me- the johnny joint torque rods in combo with Ben's spherical TABs seems to allow full articulation without binding, even with longer shocks....

I'm not putting any extra power to my wheels. Stock NA B230 right now.

As of right now, I didn't ream the mounting holes, or use a reducer sleeve.

So far, friction seems to keep it in place. A...

Installed. Need an angle finder to fine tune pinion angle. Right now it's eyeballed.

Went with swedged tube AFC-19511 from summit. 11" was perfect. For now, I kept the 12mm hardware and just...

Returning 12" swedged tubes for 11"; in this particular application, the 12" is too long because the johnny joints bottom out in the tube, leaving 2 1/8" from tube end to center, so minimum length is...

I'm doing that on the axle side, but cannot on the chassis side due to the chassis weld nut restricting my options to 12mm metric fasteners. The screw in the pictures above is 1/2"



Thanks......

Thanks for the input. I tried searching, but it doesn't look like anyone makes sleeves for 12mm to 1/2. Have you heard of any?

Gonna go the swedged/swaged tube route. Cheaper, and more range.
New calculated range is 15.1-17.25 inches, or about 380 to 440mm

Order placed. Going to use greasable 1/2" bolts on axle side, and...

Can anyone confirm that if you raise your car, torque rods need to lengthen, and if you lower your car, they need to shorten? That's how I'm picturing the pinion geometry in my head.

Think 25mm of...

Ian's BAFTRs (Big A** F***ing Torque Rods)

It's unnecessary and overkill, but I'm doing it.
