Re: Links

Mine would have been a bit heavier but 2" alloy links and 1.25" heims. Never had a drama.

Re: Links

All my links were over 1000 and no drama. I used 1.25 for uppers aswell.

Opw truck bent the rod end itself but I don't think they ever bothered changing it? The jmw 40 has had a slightly bent front link for 2 years? After landing hard on it, Hasn't seemed to worry it.

I would just run the 2" and 1.25.
