    Z06 End Link Dimension?

    Does anyone know the dimension of the Z06 end links? I am thinking about building some adjustable end links and need the dimensions. I just need the bolt CL to bolt CL. This does not need to be exact, just a close measurement.

    Thank You. I won't start putting these together for a week or more so don't go to too much trouble.

    I want to be on the toe rods, end links, and trailing arms list. Don't really want to drill my hotchs out. They were laying under the desk, thought I would help out.

    Thank You for the measurement and picture.

    They will be an adjustable piece and will either have:


    Stainless Steel ball joints w' min. grade 8.8 threaded rod.

    OR

    High Strength Zinc Alloy ball joint w' min. grade 8.8 threaded rod.



    This is by far a definite. As short as those Z06 end links are you can barely butt the ball joints up to achieve that measurement. I don't think they need to be that short though. Those are close to 1.5" shorter than the stock pieces. I will see what dimension I can get them down to.

    I have a set of C5Z06 endlinks sitting on the shelf.

    I can send them to you if you need a set.

    I'd just need them back at one point or another, or a set of your new endlinks

    Let me know ASAP, I leave for Japan in 2 days, and will be gone for almost 2 weeks.

    I should be good with just the dimensions for now. If that changes I will let you know. It will probably be at least 2 weeks before I start this venture. Thank You though.
