yeah she hasnt let me down yet accept for the usual break something simple and fix it lol...

buy the way does anyone know where or if someone makes steel or at least stronger transvers links i keep breaking them ....

What do you mean breaking? Squirting all the juice out? Yours are probably liquid filled for less vibrations. Those break all the time. Just get some off a 04-07 STI. You shouldnt have a problem with those.

Must have way too much force on it. How is your lift constructed?

Very strange. We've never had one break, even on the rally car where we break wheels, struts and lower control arms. I would try running the factory bolt through there. You will obviously need the proper nut too. The factory bolt is a flange head to disperse the clamping force more evenly on the large slotted hole. Or you can retain whatever bolt it is you are using and run a large diameter and thick washer. My guess is that the mating surface of that bolt is barely larger than the slotted hole, so it is trying to work its way into the hole and the only option it has is to open the hole. This will result in it cracking at the weakest point. Try it and see what happens.

Or even just try a large surfaced washer to disperse the load better.

I'd be willing to bet money that individual blocks + thrashing = broken links. I'm looking to do about 2-3 inches of body lift on mine and still going to tie it together. That's a pretty good stress point and probably one of the weaker ones, so I'll bet a few bucks worth of steel and an hour of welding will solve the breaking problem.

 

The wagon is looking great though. My sister is going to school in east L.A. Sometime when I'm down that way, you interested in taking the wagons out for a romp? Maybe even get a gathering together like the guys in the northwest do. Gotta be some other trail ready subes in southern California.
