    Slash 4x4 Aluminum Turnbuckles



    Took these off my Jato. Had to trim the camber rod ends a little bit, but they fit great. Working on the back now.

    the Jato ones must be different. I think the Rusty ones are a bolt on with success by other members I think.. my blue ones come in on Thur.

    i really just need a pic...some of them have a smaller plastic end than others....ive put it together a few different ways and never seems right....either i have to thread em out too much or something....i should probably take some longer ends from the steel set and put em on the aluminum set (what i'm doing next...just stopped to try to find that pic we saw but now i can't find it)......btw just so you know these are only 4 grams lighter than steel (per complete set of 6)....with 4 longer plastic ends there probably the same weight as steel...lol....i think it was 30 grams vs 34.....gonna go give it another shot

    only 4 huh?

    Maybe I should reconsider until the actual ones come or just reconsider all together... The LHS said I dont have to get the, since they were out of them..

    I have some spare steelies that I scored from the bay cheap.

    I'm parting out my Jato and these were a bit too bruised to sell to somebody else, so I made them work. The rears took quite a bit of shortening. The steering links were bolt on, the front camber links needed the rod ends shortend and the rears needed both the rod ends and a small bit of the link itself shortened.
