To address some complaints about noisy rod ends we looked into the issue and came up with a solution. These new parts replace the standard rod ends with teflon lubricated, aircraft grade, ones so there should be no more issues with noise and there should even be more strength.

If you have the old style there's nothing to wory about, they're not junk, I've had mine on for years with not so much as a peep from them but others seem to have more issues.

To get these new sets out there and get some reviews I'm running a quick group buy.

$190 shipped for the first 10 to jump in on this. Once we get to that number I'll order the parts for them, modify what needs to be modified, and ship them out to you guys. Paypal is [email protected].

right on. I have been trying to figure the noise out for a while now. ;) I greased them, but I thought the sound was coming from there. Thanks.

Yeah it kinda sucks that I already purchased the old ones, installed last summer and started hearing the noise a bit later. I had them greased before the winter I believe, and now the squeaking is coming back again. I believe I will be investing in the boots lol

I want these but have a little too much going on right now. If the group by is going on in a month or two then I'll be all for it. If not I'll just go for the regular price. Sorry man just really really bad timing it seems.

I just went under there, and it seems like rust may be playing a bigger role than any dirt collecting. Im not sure if its because of how the camber and toe arms are positioned, or the difference in material(?), but the toe arms looked worse than the camber control arms. I got the toe arms from 3sx, but the camber ones were purchased from you guys. I understand the boots could possibly hold dirt in there because of the openings, but It cant be nearly as much as the dirt thats sticking when its wide open, especially now right after it was greased.

Good looks Terry. Mine make some terrible noises on my TT. One day I will have to replace the inner ends as it drives me insane that they rust and shit. I didn't buy yours as you weren't selling stuff when I bought mine. I bought it from a shop that I don't support for the most part because of the Pricy-ness of that shop for the same parts everyone else carries. I paid at least $200 for my set when I bought mine and they are terrible. The fact that you sell upgraded ones for that is well worth it.

Good choice.

Added these to my site since it didn't look like the group buy was taking off: Maximal Performance

Also added the rod ends separate for those that wanted to go that route: Maximal Performance - Heavy Duty Adjustable Control Arm Rod Ends
Any special discount (a complete replacement under warranty would be fine as well...) for the old squeeky version buyers? Got these a couple of years ago and need to grease them once a month to keed the noise tolerable, in my opinion there's an obvious defect in the product :(
