Default TruLink Rear Suspension for A-Body and G-Body Cars



TruLink Rear Suspension for A-Body and G-Body cars. It's the first trailing arm upgrade system with revolutionary R-Joints rod ends and bearings pre-installed. If you haven't heard, R-Joints are innovative spherical bearings that use a self-lubricating composite cage, It's a proprietary composite material called RTX10. R-Joints also feature a self-tensioning closure. As the cage wears, the closure picks up the slack -- very slick. Press-in axle-side R-Joints are included. Articulation is far superior to any poly or rubber bushing. Service life is far superior to traditional metal rod ends. There is also no noise and no need for grease. StrongArm trailing arms are built using thick-wall DOM tubing in our Jasper Indiana factory by people who own and drive muscle cars and muscle trucks. The system is finished off with our excellent HQ Series adjustable monotube shocks with an industry-exclusive million-and-one-mile warranty. Shock valving is specifically calibrated for A-Body or G-Body platforms. Matching front shocks are available as are a host of related components.

TruLink rear suspension offers the best articulation, handling, launch characteristics and ride quality on the market with no noise and long service life. They are in stock for same day shipping. Made in the USA and totally awesome! Price: $995

Thanks for looking,
Steve

What's the major difference between these R joints and Currie's Johnny Joints? The self tensioning enclosure? Less deflection from a stiffer race material?


*Please do not interpret this as trolling. I'm genuinely curious.

These features are what we focused on when designing them:

-Articulates in 3 planes … 360 degree axial rotation and 30 degrees of total lateral rotation.
-17-4 investment cast stainless steel housing with rolled threads.
-Polished stainless ball and RTX10 composite cage allow consistent low friction movement
-Special RTX10 composite compound needs NO lubrication
-Self cleaning design…movement not affected by ANY water, grit, dirt, or debris
-Spring loaded closure to keep mechanism tight and rattle free



When comparing them to the typical rubber, poly, and metal rod ends, we were working to eliminate these typical issues:

-Rubber Bushings allow uncontrolled lateral suspension movement resulting in sloppy handling.
-Polyurethane bushings Cause undesirable friction spikes during rotational movement along with distracting squeaking noise. Roll-bind limits articulation.
-All-metal rod ends also known as heim joints, are susceptible to premature wear. All-metal rod ends get loose, rattle and are compromised by dirt and moisture.

The main goal was to create a joint that is self lubricating, self cleaning, great articulation, and a VERY long lifespan.

I've had these arms and R-Joint axle bearings on my car for a little over a month and have street driven and raced them considerably already. The improvement in smoother articulation with zero bind is VERY noticeable.

The car now keeps the inside rear tire planted and the free on corner exit issue that has plagued this car forever is now gone.

Check out the Gs it holds in big sweepers now...



Nice product Ridetech!!!
