the body side is just a steel sleve. the "rod" is now square tubing and then the small rubber bushing is still stock on the engine side. I expect it to be really stiff and vibrate lots.
perfect for rallyX.

actually the other half (body side) of the stock torque strut was recetly used to fab up a new strut for the wagon. it works really well providing good solid shift with minimal "bucking" and little vibration. I fogot to take pics of it and now its burried under the intercooler.
