Rear Toe Link Install

Finally got the correct rod ends, and installed the rod ends.  Here’s a picture of the OEM link vs the Hancha link

It went very well.  A potential issue was that with the castle nut, the shank is too long and doesn’t leave clearance for the parking brake cable.  So we’ve changed the production version to use a nylon locking nut which allows us to shorten the shank by 10mm.  This also allows us to shave off a few more grams.  The toe link will head into production next week.  Expect these to be ready to ship mid-April.  This is what the final production version will look like
