I'm frustrated with Edelbroke
Seem that they can't get this part correct.

I ordered their: Tie Rod Sleeve Pair 5252 from Summit. (they work like a turnbuckle, outer-end RH thread & nut, inner-end LH thread & nut)

First set comes, one sleeve had NO THREADS in one end, 3 RH nuts & 1 LH nut.

Summit gladly exchanged for second set.

Second set comes, sleeves are fine, BUT 4 RH nuts, NO LH nuts

I called Edelbroke, explained that I needed 1 more LH nut, They sent me ANOTHER RH NUT!!!!

I gave up & ordered Hotchkis tie rod sleeves.



It's not bling in my case, it's function.

My front is pretty low with springs 50% stiffer than stock, Bilstein shocks.

I will start doing my own alignments as I bought the tools from SC&C when I got his Stage 2 adjustable UCA's & tall ball joints

The sleeves & end nuts are easier.

Not to promote anything, but for all my previous domestic cars, I ordered front-end parts from PST.
On all my previous toyota pickups (4 of them), I'd get the cheapy Rockauto stuff.
Everythings been good so far.

P.S. lol at "edelbroke" :D
