Missing link (Glenn)

How streetable is the missing link? A friend of mine just orderd it (Jed Hening, and he said it was off road use only. Would I be putting myself in
danger driving a zuk with this lift on the road?

Re: Missing link (Glenn)

We, for obvious reasons, can't recommend Missing Links for the highway.

Many guys do use it on the highway with no problems and I've driven with it for years now. However, alot of folks drive around without realizing they're in modified vehicles that handle differently and don't adapt their driving skills accordingly.... and then put the responsibility onto others for their actions (aka, lawsuits).

So, all that said, we cannot recommend using them on the highway.

Re: Missing link (Glenn)

Glen is right,

I had to learn how to drive all over again with ML!
What a hoot, take you eyes off the road for one sec. and your in the other lane, and talk about taking corners,,,Ugh! I drove on a road full of sharp curves that I have drove on many times, I can tell you, I was glad no one was coming from the other way!

If you could figure out a way to pin them, so they don't let the front-end "walk" around on road, then they might work ok.

But don't plan on Daily Driver with them.

Re: Missing link (Glenn)

I just finished a ML setup and I love it!! The ride is 10 times better, almost like driving in a luxury SUV. But it does take some getting used to. The best thing I found is to put some good shocks on. I am using Rancho RS9000 which are adjustable and keep them at the highest setting on the road, I could stand to be a little stiffer to help out more, but like everyone says just change your driving habits and you will enjoy the ML's.

Plan on a lot of little work though to get the ML on correctly. Alot of little things come up when you put them on. Brake lines, driveshaft lengths, front shock towers, ML resting bumpstops, steering link, bump stops, shock lengths.....etc..

Re: Missing link (Glenn)

I wonder if a Panhard rod would give the Missing Link better street manners?
