Default DIY Endlink Mod

For those with straight endlinks I did this very easy mod to strengthen the OEM endlinks. Total cost $1.99

I bought a foot of 1/4" black pipe and sawed it straight down the middle. Way too much length for the job but the store sold it by the foot.


The 1/4" pipe fits the endlink diameter perfectly once you splice it. Next was just to cut to length and reweld the pipe. Very simple mod to the OEM endlinks.


I'll post back if I have any problems/failure of the endlinks due to modifing them. Performance=? I installed the swaybar at the same time.

doesnt the welding burn up the grease in the unit? also what about the rubber?
either way, great idea for the DIYers.

yeah, i think the rubber is the only thing that needs changing about the OEM front endlinks until you step up to really thick bars...

change the rubber out for some urethane and you'll have a nice DIY mod.

and get off of those damn re-92s!

Burning: Tack on each end, tack in middle, weld between the tacks but letting it cool before welds. It didn't get too hot or burn the rubber. I could hold the by the treads afterwards.
