    I failed to mention that.
    Did you break it? I snapped the wooden handle off my mallet. Bastard had it coming.

    raguncajn - I ran out of shielding gas this weekend in the middle of your arms. I'm probably going to spring for a bigger cylinder when I go to airgas Tuesday. I should have your arms shipped out Wednesday.

    No, but I smacked my head on the bolt that was laying on the floor of the garage when I was wrestling with the bugger. Got a little knot just above my ear. No blood, though, so I'm good.




    Killer: Say, can you PM me your address so I can send the OEM arms back to you and get my credit? Thanks.

    No worries, work is CRAZY right now! I probably won't have time to install them for 2 or 3 weeks anyway.

    OEM arms sent UPS today. You should get them Friday.

    Good job, killer!

    Alright raguncajn, your arms will be at your house Monday. I accidentally welded the flex joint cup on one of your arms upside down and didn't notice until I went to assemble the flex joint (after it was powder coated). It won't hurt anything though, one will just look different than the other one (the threaded preload adjuster that squishes the races will be on the top rather than the bottom on one of them). If you want, I can knock a little off the price for the mistake.

    I don't think that would be a problem unless the preload would need to be adjusted, don't worry about it.

    Hope they show up tomorrow.

    Figured I'd throw out a quick shout-out: in the last month Killer's arms have been through about 15 hard launches and they're still as silent and immaculate as they were when they went in. Great job!

    No hard launches here, but several 2nd gear runs, and all is well.

    Sure is nice to be able to enjoy those 19x10" wheels in back without listening to constant scraping on the trailing arms.

    If you're ever feeling nostalgic, I can burn you a CD filled with "ghhhhkxxxghxxxxx" (<--- trailing arms scraping) to play while you drive. :P
