Does anyone have dimentions for the f-body end links ?
I wanted to compare the endlink i have to the f-body ones so that maybe i can trim them.
What I am intersted in is the length of the tube that goes around the long bolt.
Thaks a lot

I just realized that the end link posted on the IGBA web page is close 1:1 ratio, so it looks like its about 2in long. Does this sound right ?

No. They're right at 7 1/8" long. I have a pair sitting in my basement right now waiting for me to swap them in.

Sorry, that's the entire end-link. The tube is 2 1/2" long, so you were pretty close. It has two flats built in, one at either end (almost as though washers had been welded onto each end) so it's shaped kind of like a skinny spool of thread. Assuming the stockers are built the same way, you'd be cutting off one of the flats if you cut it.

I bought my end-links from pep-boys because i needed them that day. They are just simple bolt+tubing+washers+bushings, so ther is no problem there with cutting the tubing.
I wonder if the f-body end links are better because they have those washers "welded" on.
I know they use better bushings.
Does any one know how end links work ??
How the length effects performance and what about those flats being welded on ?
Thanks
