Lowering Kit Concern
« on: Jul 17, 2020, 05:46:05 am »
After a month I finally got my 0 - 2Ē adjustable lowering kit delivered from LA. All okay but Iím concerned that the turn buckle part of it is made from an aluminium alloy and not steel. Donít even want to think about it if I was riding at speed, hit a bump and those alloy threads stripped out. Anybody had any experience with this issue or am I just worrying about nothing?

    I think itíll be fine , but if you have a machine shop close to you take that one and have them make you one from steel !
    Lean till it grinds , then lean some more ..
