The sad thing is that if you look at his feedback there are people buying this crap up, this dude is making a killing off of them.

You know that is just a top link. Well what stops the manufacturers of the high dollar ones from being in his price range. Do you realy think there is that much diferance from a $40.00 dollar part that probably works and a $300.00 dollar part?

Maybe I am missing it, but you mean just the threaded part? How do you attach it to your original bar? I thought that on ebay was the whole bar?
I saw the tractor suply one, would that bolt in and work on our trucks?

What is scary, is that there are people out there that would see that and buy it.... That is what is driving beside you and your family in traffic.



melmount:
An adjustable trac bar is a vital part of your suspension. The one for sell on ebay is a ghetto'd up, afro engineered, part for a TRACTOR. tsc is Tractor Supply Company. That is, IMHO, a cheap fix for an aspect of a vehicle that is no place for cheap fixes

I mean, it MIGHT work, but I would never do that

While there are more affordable quality track bars out there than $300, it takes a decent amount of money to build a quality bar. A quality set of heim joints alone is easily $60, just by themselves. Take into account the cost of tubing, tubing adapters, and powdercoat.

Dont get me wrong, I disagree with the seller marketing a top link as an adjustable track bar. Long term durability isnt going to be there, nor are the bolt diameters going to be correct. Not to mention the fact that the part he is selling was in no way engineered to be used as a vital part of a trucks suspension. But saying that suspension builders are making $260 profit off a $300 track bar is incorrect....
