    Default Sloppy Heim Joint Fix

    Noticed the rear upper ball joints have become sloppy. Using some o-rings to take up the slack has improved them a lot. Oring size is 3x6x14.











    Zip ties would also work..... See how these hold up.

    Sloppy front lower ball joint fix.

    Slotted and bolted the lower arm to reduce the play. Other models use this design.

    3 & 6 mm drill bits




    Drill through thickest section ..



    Counter sink hole for cap head bolt and nut




    Eliminates all the slop in the suspension and is adjustable as it wears 'to a point'
