New Item - Strut Rod and LCA in one


Recommended Posts

The following link goes to a blog post I made on our website today. I've finally completed a prototype of combined LCA and strut rod. I'm struggling with the name so if you have suggestions i'd like to hear about it. It's been about 9 months since I first thought about this product. I vacillated back and forth with the design, but this one looks like a winner. There a still a few things to work out, but it's close. I'm hoping that we go into production in July. The blog is about the 65/66 Mustang version, but there will be a version that will fit later Mustangs as well.

 

There are similar products out there but my price will not be anywhere as high...probably in the $475 per pair range. If you try to buy aftermarket strut rods and LCAs separately, you'll pay more...even for our stuff and I try to keep our prices reasonable let alone other vendors who are higher.

 

I'd like to hear your feedback!

That's quite a good design and should sell. Only question I have is how do you grease the front turnbuckle? It will be exposed to the elements, road grime and dirt which would cause it to wear prematurely..Just a thought.

The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

The rod end is a self lubricating teflon lined rod end. The turnbuckle is greased with silver anti-sieze compound when it is assembled. The hardware from the turnbuckle forward is essentially the same hardware that is used in our adjustable strut rods.

 

Years ago, I had TCP adjustable strut rods on my personal car and I remember them seizing up on me after less than a year. I am always sure to use anti-sieze on threaded joints from that experience.
