https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/pr...?Product=AN970 is the place that sells the washers they use according to the other thread in JG I saw for this on wk1's
Which size do we need??

Re: My Bwoody/Fastman Upgrades

Marketing BS, and a poor design. The aftermarket is full of products that improve one aspect, at the expense of others. I had them on my WK... With no balljoints the ride is so much harsher you feel every bump in the pavement, crashing violently through potholes. Went back to stock and much happier.

I haven't noticed a harsher ride myself, if anything it's been much better. It is tighter, yes, and I'm sure if I hit some potholes I'll feel them. We don't have many where I live fortunately, or I avoid the ones we have.

now that I have said this, I'm due to wreck 3 of 4 wheels tomorrow. thx.

I'd go back to stock but the cornering/ride is just so much better. The ones they are sending out now do come with larger washers, and washers for both sides. I had a mechanic look at it and he said the best way to keep them running at their best is to get them relubed every 5-6 months.

Re: My Bwoody/Fastman Upgrades

The front BWoody links were re-designed and information was posted up on other forums about customers getting their links corrected. The original design was based off of the 2011 Jeep Grand cherokee that had a different angle to the sway bar than the SRT did. The new sway bar links incorporate the proper angle for the art-8 sway bars. The announcement made was that if you wish to send yours in they will be modified and sent back to you re-built and with new nylock nuts free of charge, all you have to do is bolt your OEM links back on and ship them to our address on the website and include all of your information for return shipment inside the box.

Re: My Bwoody/Fastman Upgrades

Flat out a spherical sway bar link design will not perform anywhere near as well as ours, if you want the spherical design stick with the OEM links. Most of the improvement you guys see from our links is not only from the size but also removing the spherical design and firming it up with our polyurethane Straight through bushing. We Realized that there was an issue and have re-designed the sway bar links to the proper angles, and our test vehicle has been on them now for over 5 months and 8k miles and have not shown any abnormal wear, and has shown even greater improvement in handling. The Beta tester now expains the handling as GO-Kart like!

Re: My Bwoody/Fastman Upgrades

Couple questions:

#1 If you purchase the BWoody 4" TRUE Ram air CAI with their washer harness kit are you able to use the washer sprayers as OEM (separate sprays for front and rear)? I bought this same CAI for my 2012 and it came with a one motor pump that sprayed on the windshield and rear window at all times.

#2 the fastman TB, I ordered one as well but he said that there is no true 87mm tb, where is the 87mm coming from with you guys? He gave me the largest one he had which i think was just 85mm. Can anyone add to this and tell me whats up with the number discrepancy?

Re: My Bwoody/Fastman Upgrades

What production runs need to be sent back in? I ordered mine about 3-4 months ago and have not installed them because I was going to do that when I put the springs and summer tires on. I am assuming this is the batch that needs to be fixed. Please respond and I will send mine back in for the new ones.
