Lol the links dont work and i looked on that site for what hes talking about and i couldn't seem to find the exact parts. I found the threaded sleeves and what not though.
apart of weight(and material) Which differences the sleeves have?
only real advantage I see of the steel sleeve is that you could weld it directly to the strut housing...
perhaps the aluminum sleeve could get damaged more easily from flying rocks and debris, but cheap and easy to replace if that happened...
The compbrake stuff worth $23.63 (at today exchange):http://compbrake.co.uk/shop/product_info.php?cPath=9&products_id=299
I'm going to try these Torrington bearings on the lower perch when I get around to buying short struts and new coilover tubes/hardware. Assuming they work as designed, it will allow the spring to rotate so that it doesn't bind when compressiong or turning.
There's a lot of friction between the upper perch and the spherical bearing.
