Exclamation X-Engineering

I have the following x-engineering products for sale:
http://www.x-eng.co.uk/


X-Springs

Quote:
When your axle needs to articulate, the long, soft spring pops out and gives you another 10 inches of sprung travel. At the point your old spring would otherwise dislocate, the X-Spring is still pushing with 250kg of force. This will give you traction in places no other spring can!
Some of you may have seen these in action on my truck at MAR, before you sit for hours wondering if they will work... trust me they do, and it is pretty surprising how well they work. $240 shipped.




X-Ball

Quote:
X-Ball is a replacement for a standard A Frame ball joint. Unlike a standard joint which restricts articulation to as little as 16 degrees, our X-Ball allows a full 22.5 degrees of articulation. X-Ball is a must for lifted, and extended travel vehicles!
The X-Ball joint is adjustable meaning that as the joint wears, rather than replace the whole joint, you can tighten the screw a little and restore the joint to like-new performance.
This is brand new, never installed. $50 shipped


and last but not least...



Custom built X-Jointed Rovertym rear links

Quote:
X-Joints give you up to 35 degrees of unrestricted axle droop, 10 degrees of axle rise and unlimited rotation. This gives an astonishing maximum of 45 degrees of unrestricted articulation to an axle! The X-Joint works just lke your Hip Joint. It has a 60mm diameter ball made from EN8 Steel cushoned inside a specially moulded Shore 'A' 70 PU Elastomer bush. The bush is then housed in a pair of Anodised, CNC machined HE15 grade structural Aluminium cups.We have even tested them on portal axles - and they are plenty strong enough! The PU bushing gives a similar amount of cushoning to the original chassis bush helping minimise transmitted axle vibration.
The arms are adjustable length so you can compensate for mis-allignment of your differential due to a suspension lift.
The cups bolt through the existing holes in your chassis radius arm mount - so absolutely no modification is necessary to the chassis.
The X-Joint is greasable and fully re-buildable. It requires little mantainence and it will give you years of service with exceptional performance.
I wanted the best of both worlds, the strength of the RTE rear links but with the adjustability and flexibility of the x-joint, so I had these made. The joints are awesome, they never squeak, they move smoothly and have no play in them even after wheeling/driving for 5 months. Best part is, you get superior flexibility to the factory type bushing without modifying your frame. $600 shipped

Excellent. As good or better than I had with poly bushings and much MUCH better than any old rubber bushings.

If whoever bought the RTE/X-joint links doesn't use them, I'll buy them off you.

Chad,

I've been looking into this for a while and found this guy in the UK selling his kit. I decide to keep the RTE ones I have...

http://forum.difflock.com/ads_item.p...0d78cc57742523

X-Eng sells them for 198.

Also, I have an additional set of rear links, if you want them let me know.
