    So Brian Tooley Racing is out of stock of their SLR lifters and no one has them in stock so I am looking at either the Johnson link bar 2116LSR or Morel link bar 5274 lifters. Anyone have experience with either? I was told these would be great for my application but the Johnson lifters are over $100 cheaper so I am wondering which one is better or is there not an appreciable difference other than price?

    I'm running Johnson short travel 2126LSR. They saved me (local guys) when my Lunati's took a shit on me. The Johnson pieces are nice....won't go wrong with either.

    Nice! Can you measure the thickness of the plate steel where the front shocks mount, please?

    Thanks! Sure l'll do that tonight when I get home from work. I think they are 1/8" thick but I'll double check. Just out of curiosity why do you need that measurement?

    I have a set and the base plate is 3/16" thick. Based upon what I was reading at the time I installed a set of spacers as I thought the plate was supposed to be 1/4" on the newer style arms. Unfortunately, the spacers noticeably raised the front of our car so I removed them. Just curious...

    The access under the car, for headers, etc, is worth every penny.

    I bet it is, from the looks of it, it looks like if I ever needed to drop my oil pan I could still do it easily with the engine still in the car. Normally it would just be a lot easier to take the engine out, at least to me it would be.

    Lol....there isn't that much room. Which oil pan? The Moroso is VERY close up front. Actually had to do some clearancing.

    Thanks! I thought I had one of the older style K-members and that confirms it.

    My Morel 5206 lifters arrived. I have to say they are quite nice.

    Until you posted it, I don't think I had ever heard of "Morel". Any reason in particular that you went with this brand?
