Toss $700? Let me get that ARH X-pipe then.

Re: BWP adjustable control arms for lowered cars

What's wrong with the BWP end links? Curious as I haven't fitted mine yet, and truth be told I'm still waiting on a shipping quote for the arms..so...

Just wanna make the best decision here.. Good to have so many opinions on both forums..

BWP end links are missing the swivel end like the stock ones have. They are not designed to take into account lowered vehicles or the fact that the rear is an IRS setup. I'm no engineer, and this was explained to me in detail and it makes sense. Plus BWP does not have a good reputation on this forum for quality. The bracket on the cold air keeps breaking, the end links are ill designed and whoever welds for them really is awful. Looks like my early attempts with a stick welder back in high school. Someone around here can explain the engineering aspect of it better than I can I'm sure.

There are a couple pics of failed BW end links around. Supposedly they redesigned them but I would still have some concern

No slap fight from anyone I can think of.

They just cut them down or at a different angle and put in a different bushing. I can't find mine or I would post up a pic. In BWPs defense they did do it for free, but charged me for shipping lol. I put my stock ones back on.

Re: BWP adjustable control arms for lowered cars

I try to let my products and service talk for my stuff but I will step in and respond to the Trolls comments because I don't drive sales by BS'ing my customers and as you can see by this post so far my customers have done all the talking not me Thanks everyone.

Our stuff is all designed by an old F1 Chassy engineer who designs for Mopar too LOl so keep talking Mike your way out of your league!! OH we have all the proof anyone needs it too.

Can someone tell me why you would solidly mount your sway bar to an independent rear suspension? The Lateral Bla bla bla Mike is selling is a crock of S**T give proof like we have!! I have spend all the money designing a part for the SRT that this truck deserves Period!! Our parts are not welded together on a workbench in some Brick and mortar Building (Bla Bla Bla More BS)

Some Facts in case no one knows Mike got ran off 4 years ago for shady work that could have burt Keoin's jeep to the ground found by Stage 6 then went and crawled under a rock for 3 years. Their where some other instances that he wore thin with the old 05-10 crowd he has since returned because all of the old Group is now gone!!! Most Newbs have no clue of Mikes Reputation he welds pipe Big freekin deal he is NOT an engineer of any sort of the imagination period.

NOW to our involvement with BWoody!!
We have had to diffused a few Pissed customers with instances where Mike was selling the crappy OLD Medic hood with no inners and the China one out of NY as ours LOL. We let his customers know after 1 pic each sent to us that they did not buy a Black Ops Hood from Bwoody and that was not our hood and the hood they have is a fake. Mike sold a whopping 1 hood only a few months ago for us that's all and at that I even called him out as to why he even wants to sell my hoods because he was talking shit about them? He said "My account was hacked on the Red Site and I had it out with Rambit" More BS Haa.. So selling a Fake Medic hood as our hood is even remotely a good business move talk about a S**T move by a vendor. I'm sure someone saw my post about the fake Medic hoods a few months back remember? This was because of what your's Truly Mike Was selling. He has even been at shows talking crap about selling our stuff in front of Doug and Johnny and them calling me telling me on the spot. Oh and Johnny and Doug know my business and knew it was BS


Now Onto the soup and nuts of this post so it stays on track

Here is a pic of an indipend rear race car set up see the swivel end on the link? How and WHY would you solidly mount this? see the angle gets more extreme the lower the vehicle gets so solid mount it good idea?



A-kon I'll give you a Deal on new engineered set of links since you threw away good money come on man you are better and more meticulous than that I know u LOL.

Let me ask why the woody links are the same length as the OEM? A truck that is lowered 1.8 and 2.8" need the same length links? He's missing really simple stuff folks (NOT AND ENGINEER) and talks all this BS same as he has been for 7 years because people have no clue what he's saying just sounds technical I mean lateral LOL WOW HAAA. We will offer 2 different lengths of links for your stance. I'm sure he will now have a version 2 revised for lowered vehicles since he just learnt something. Keep following along Mike you will have 6 versions by the time you figure out what we did LOL.


Our FEA test on the New Endlinks that use the new Joint by Energy that where released by Energy Suspension only last year LOL. So Mike your Also Full of Crap here too you have never used them anyone feel free to call Energey and see first hand about the BS he throws down.




Our Arms are not just pretty they really work and do what they are supposed to do your Arms will fail first words out of my Engineers mouth when he saw the Bwoody arms "The adjustment bind under load after adjustment over and over that's the problem with that design" so good luck adjusting over and over people. Also have they been load tested to the weight of the Truck that adjustment seems awful thin? Hey he's some bonded/licensed suspension guy so no worries I'm sure everyone will be safe with them.

Here is our FEA on the ARMS


And how Pretty they are
