    poly is only good for the strip, not good for street. rod ends are great for street auto-x and are ok for the strip (from what I've read). the only bad thing about rod ends is they're noisy....that's not a good enough reason to choose poly over rod end IMHO

    idk.... all I know is when I took out my boxed LCAs I noticed that the brackets on the body were slightly widend, like the LCA was hitting from side to side (on turns probably).

    ROD ENDS FTW!!!!

    the hole close to the rocker is easy.....just the uni bit and a angle air grinder.......the far hole......harder.......put the uni bit in a 1/4 deep socket.....i used a 7mm.....add a short extension....adapter....3/8 swivel.....and a air ratchet.....you got it now
