  • FLCA options

    I was planning on going with def's modded godspeed LCAs but the rod ends he listed are out of stock in the US and shipping from the UK is ~$80. The other options I have found (QA1) are ~$100 for the pair of rod ends. Does anyone know of a cheaper option that would still be good quality? Or would the ends that it comes with be ok to run until Midwest has them back in stock?

    I found some on MCC for $25ea but not sure about the quality. What do you guys think about these? MCC part # 4483T361

      The only Auroras I could find were ~$60 each.

        Coleman Racing, I believe the 3/4 Aurora's are 18.00 each or there abouts. It is possible to modify stock lca's to adjustable.

          Are you talking about using them with threaded inserts or weld in bungs or something? Or do you mean using them to modify OEM LCA's? The ones DEF has listed are 16-2.0

            logr is referring to a stock modded LCA. The GS arms are 16x2mm rod ends.

                Is that just DOM tubing welded to the arm and tapped out for the rod end to thread into? To put RC adjustment and heims on the bj side I'm assuming I could go with the the same bolt type setup thats on the modded gs arms? Or would there not be enough clearance between the rotor and lca?

                  It is tubing from Coleman tapped to 3/4 opposite threads per end.

                  Guess you could on the other or modify the spindle as in the above pic to get the roll center correction. There is 1.25" correction on the above spindles with steering changed to 2.25 turns lock to lock on a stock rack and stock bj.

                  There is a thread on here.

                    I couldn't find the thread you're talking about, is it just a 3/4-16 bolt welded to the end of the LCA that the tubing threads onto? What wall thickness would be required for the tubing?

                    Sorry for the newbish questions, just want to make sure they're strong enough...

                    *edit* found this this tubing on coleman's website, is it what you're talking about?

                      yeah, something like that would work.
                      also check with AED Motorsports. there are a few places that sell stuff like that already threaded internally.

                        I did find one on AED's website, male on one side female on the other but it looks like it will work. LH threads on one side and RH on the other. QA1 has them too. Looks like I'll be going with QA1 # AS12-12

                        I'm thinking I'll just weld a bolt on, screw the adjuster on and then use a female rod end. My first thought was to use a grade 8 bolt here just to be safe, but by welding it I would deplete the hardening anyway. Do you guys think a grade 5 would be sufficient? After all, it is a 3/4" bolt... Or is heat treating a necesity?

                          just a few others to think about as well.
