I could be wrong but iirc they were Ford Transit Mk1 Mk2 Track Rod Ends like these, can't mind if they used threaded inserts in the wishbones or just plain tube, it's been a while... if you have them though just have a check, would be pointless to use left hand threads for their alternative application as suspension joints. Getting the large lock nuts is more a pain, I can't remember the thread they used.

They are Transit mk1 track rod ends, and I believe they only come in right hand thread, and 18mm

As per the link below, these fitted my Locost perfectly

Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

Also available from Rally Design:

For your information and for buying the right lock-nut, the thread is M18x1.50

Also wreckitralph1, could you use punctuation in your posts (periods, comas, etc.) an make proper sentences please? It would be much easier to read (at least for me!)

Thanks
