Default Deal Alert: Front End Links w/ Zerks, $3.94 apiece

Just a heads up, was browsing RockAuto's closeout section for the Gen1 MS3 and noticed these:



Granted, these could be crap. But, for $3.94 apiece, I'm willing to take a chance. They look decent, thicker than stock and with Zerk fittings. My total was $15.38 with shipping and a 5% coupon code.

Find them here (listed as API 2700257956, first entry in the Economy section):

You are likely to find that the top zerks hit the fenderwell in front. Those on the Moog end links did.

Once they hit they fuck up the threads, so it is best to fill them first (they are likely to be shipped dry) then remove the top zerk and plug the hole with a very short capscrew.

I like zerk fitting end links and use them. But there is a serious clearance issue in front at the top.

Can attest. I did that with my moog.

Anyway, still a nice find OP!

That's an amazing deal, though! You can also install the low profile zerks on the upper part. They use a needle grease fitting. They look like this. I'm running them, but don't remember the thread size right now.
