There seems to be a slight shortage of parts around right now, but I found Python Motorsports to be my personal fave as his shipping rates are the most fair and not over inflated like some other places that have a "Flat rate".

You can get larger "split bolt" turnbuckles at a local industrial supply place, but you will need to modify your chassis a bit to accomodate the larger center part of the rod when turning and on suspension action or else they will hit the edge.

I'd rather replace the 8.00 tierods than the uprights or other parts, so them being softer aluminum and bending with heavy impact is just fine my me as I'm on my second pair, and have a pair in spare as back up
