Re: whats so bad about a z-link
i'll probably catch some heat for telling the truth as I am about to. I run a 4.5 spoa on mine with a calmeany shackle reversal. I have driven it for months with just a stock bent drag link. I know it is STUPID, just never had time to make a z-link. Bump steer was pretty bad with that set up. Not too safe either. At the Uwharrie zuk meet last weekend, I finished bending my drag link. I could not even turn to the left. It would go straight and turn right. But not left. I figured it was time to finally make time to build a z-link. It eliminated almost all of my bump steer. There is still a little though. I am going to install power steering soon though. I am planning on a nuckle over system first though. I am going to eliminate this z-link. I have no problems with it, but I also don't want any bump steer. I am tired of it. I rememaber how bad it used to be, and I definately like how much I have eliminated, but when I drive my whale (76 suburban), I have 0-zip-nada in the way of bump steer. So, I hope with power steering and a nuckle over conversion, I will finally be happy. As far as which company to buy from, I don't know what to say. I will not deal with calmini based on past experiences. (I'm not trying to start anything here, it is just my opinion) Glenn at RRO has always had pretty good service, but I can never get in touch with him on the phone. I have never delt with Petro Works or Zuki South. A friend of mine has, and I guess he had pretty good service with both. I personally like Brent at Trail Tough. I have ordered from him on several occasions and have always had very good service. Hawk zuki is good too. I have talked to them on the phone and they seem very nice too. I am sure there are many others I don't know or have not delt with so I can not comment. NOTE!! These are just my opinions... I am not trying to start problems here. Just voice a opinion. If I have offended anyone, I am sorry.
Good luck man
