stock rear link

short version: hoping for one stock rear link for VERY cheap don't even need it forever so if you just want to rent it to me (come on someone is just going to throw a set of these away right? and I just need one)


longer version:
I broke Nola

She's going to need a lot of work to get back on the road... I am going to try and make her better but there are a few things I need just to get to that point.

I completely trashed one of my rear links. I'm going to need to upgrade the links to feel comfortable again but I need to be able to move her to get it done... so I'm REALLY hoping that someone upgraded their links and still has the stock ones sitting around because you just haven't thrown it away or you want them as a backup and now might be willing to let them go...

Currently my rear link is detached so the axle is being held in place by some straps... got me off the trail but I'm not really willing to drive it with any speed so I can't get it anywhere to get welding donw (if I'm going to change my rear links anyway I want to get rid of those boat anchor excuses for link mounting points thus the need for a temporary link solution...

Yes, the only difference is that some are narrower tube and some are thicker tube but they are the same length and mount the same and are thus interchangable.

I have some slightly bent ones if you want (free). But shipping coast to coast might make it not such a good deal.

Oh and yeah, after seeing Lane's build, if I ever upgrade my suspension I am going to cut off the anchors, weld on some brackets that are tucked up better and get links to match

slightly bent ones would be perfect... but alas shipping would be a killer...

ditching the anchors is my current plan... but I need to be able to drive it in the interim...

PM me your address and I can estimate shipping. I just weighed them and they are about 5 lbs each, so probably 12 boxed up. UPS.com wont estimate the cost to LA without a full address.

meh... I just bought John's (see above)

I probably should have had you ship just one as that would have been less than $20 easily.... I hate spending money for temporary solutions... maybe someone will buy them when I'm done...

No problem. Got pictures of this carnage? Maybe you just need someone with a welder to help you out (for the temporary fix)

I'm trying to get pictures of the actual trail carnage... but I'll see if I can snap a few shots of my girl sitting in the driveway (I also have a collection of things that broke trying to get her out including a 30k strap and a breaker bar)
