Very interested in how well this works. I’m hoping to need some similar soon. I was thinking of a similar setup but using a 3/4” bolt.
Should work fine. Trz does it the same way. 1/2" should be OK.. 3/4" probably over kill

I started with my limiters at just where the top of the tire started to tip in when I raised the front end. I started with the threaded rod type shown and then changed to the s&w race cars kit. Uses a threaded rod with a big disk on the bottom side and a rubber bumper in the frame. Was a little more forgiving.

I dont think they make that anymore

Edit: actually just found it. They use a 5/8' bolt for theirs. I might put a rubber snubber on the bottom of the bolt or some. PITA with there kit is because it has to be put in from the bottom you might need to take off the upper control arm to get it in.

Yes they still have it. I don’t remember how they went in. It was almost 20 years ago when I put them in. But I did go 1.21 in 60’ with them.

What you guys think a good asking price would be for all of these gauges? They all work mint... They actually are wired to a plug so they plug right in to the stock gauge plug.

I'm not the one to ask, I apparently think these are worth more than they are because I have been sitting on them for a while now

Is the speedo cable driven or electric?

i think they were big money back in the day i remember seeing them in a gmpp catalog but just the fact that they're already wired to plug into the dash already is a good selling point
