Call up USPS like I said in the PM. I went up there paid for them to ship back out and for some reason they keep redelivering to me.

I did not get them back. If you were to call up you would see that they are in route.

Nice looking parts.

As to the concern over using the rod ends in bending, although not "ideal" it is a solution that is very common on many race cars. The customer does have to keep an eye on them as with race cars these heims are usually replaced annually as part of off-season maintenance.

The "bending" moment on these is not as severe as some that are used as lower ball joints (for instance on formula and small GT cars) because the spring and damper load is fed to the top of the hub/steering knuckle vs. being fed to the lower A-Arm. (As in an unequal upper and lower control arm coil-over scenario) The lower ball joint on the B13 and B14 is basically just a locating link and should not be of major concern.
