For that rear steer lockout are you using delrin for that as well? If so could you shoot me the lengths that you are getting so I could order a set as well. I am gonna be out of town for awhile, not at home to measure it myself. The sw3 wheely king axled crawler is built but I have so much flex in the stock rear lockout setup.

The lockouts eliminate any linkage in the rear Harley should have pics up soon The rig looks great now.

JWCustomwurks

WK Package


Custom 5/16" Delrin links, with heavy duty Revo style rod ends and Rear steer lock outs.

This stuff makes this rig! The delrin links are absolutely killer! There is no way you are going to bend these things, NO WAY! I have mine set up right at 12.5" WB. All I did is give Jeff the lengths I wanted and BAM, DONE!







Then Jeff whipped me up these steering lock outs. These things clean up the rear of the axle perfectly. The steering knuckles were then trimmed to keep it as clean as possible.



Installed

what are the lengths of your links upper and lower? Im looking at 4.25 eye to eye running an sw3 chassis.....It looks to be about the same length on the chassis as yours. I was just wondering if I was close, my upper and lowers measure the same, but it just doesn't seem right to me from what i have been reading on a bunch of tlt forums. I have not seen a wheely king sw3 setup though, so those measurements may be correct.

From memory:

Lower links eye to eye - 4 1/8"
Upper Links eye to eye - 4 5/8"

Again that could be incorrect but the tops are definetly longer.

My drive shafts are also completely protected, I really love the built in clocked pinion.

I can't wait untill kevin at TCS gets the link mounts done. I really want to get rid of these worthless stock ones. These things SUCK!!!!

I couldn't be happier with Jeffs (JWCustomwurks) fab work on my suspension and steering links. You may notice that the steering servo link is not done yet. It will be in the future but I needed to finish some things before I had him make me one. These link are actually about the same weight as the temporary all-thread versions I made. The rod ends that Jeff uses are incredibly strong and beefy. He had all of my links done in just a little over an hour and a half, all from scratch.

It will be nice for people to be able to get a complete kit for their WK made to any custom length, and to have the steering lockouts. You can't beat Jeff's prices on this stuff. I don't think he charges enough for the stuff he produces.

Just a little FYI, even though Jeff and I are friends I am a paying customer. These aren't freebies to write this. I paid him just like all of you would, I just happen to be able to drive over and pick them up.

Thanks again Jeff.

Josh

LUNCH PROJECT!!!!!



I still need to add the holes for the shock mounts, and I didn't do the recess like the tranny plate has, but this is more for suspension modeling and cool renderings.

I will assemble the complete truck later.
