    James it might be something you could add to the preexisting kit to give customers a choice between a bushed or non bushed mount. Just a thought.

      do you mean the torsion bar adjusters? If so yes we do for $89 a pair, but for some reason I am having an issue finding it on our website. I have to check with our webmaster what going on.

      Thanks
      James

      Is there anything else needed for the strut rods? Do you use the rubber bushings going in the K or poly, if any at all.
      I'll be buying a set for my 71 soon but was wondering.

      Thanks

      James,
      Thanks very very much for looking into this - and so quickly too! I'm blown away by your customer service. I'm really glad you joined this site. I am really wanting to buy these adjustable strut rods so if you are able to identify a poly bushing/sleeve combo from your shop or one that you can outsource that will work with them, that will be great.
      Have a great weekend.

        Sorry Guys, I took an extended week to wrench on a couple of my own projects. I have made a few calls and I am waiting for some bushings to arrive to see if we can make this work. I will keep you guys updated.

        Thanks
        James

            Sorry rrTor-Red. Some how I missed your post as I was checking. The strut rods are read to install currently the kit come with billet solid spacer that take the place of the rubber or poly bushing. So if you order them all the parts are included to install. If you have any other questions let me know. I will not miss your post this time. LOL sorry

            Thanks
            James

              Hey James, just checking on any progress with the poly bushed adjustable strut rods?

              - - - Updated - - -

              Have you driven your car with these yet? Curious on how they feel and handle.
