Connecting Rod Lengths: 

When ordering please specify the length of the horizontal connecting rods you require. To determine this measurement- please see below guide.

Installation:

This kit is universal and will fit all welded back diff housings. 

Sheetmetal Diff Housings- see our product range for the sheetmetal housing watts link kit.

 

Guideline to Determine Connecting Rod Length:

  1. Measure distance between LHS inside chassis rail to RHS inside chassis rail- mark down your measurement.
  2. Divide this measurement by two- mark down both measurements.
  3. Subtract approx. 55mm from each length- you now have two equal connecting rod lengths.
  4. Provide the connecting rod lengths in the notes section of your order at the checkout- Your Done!

Watts-linkage Specification:

  • The Heim joint will allow for approx +/- 6mm of adjustment either side of the newly determined connecting rod length.
  • Using the abovementioned guideline allows for the wishbone to be clocked at approx. 75 degrees and will provide 20mm of clearance from the inside chassis rail to the outer edge of the connecting rod fixed bush housing.

Custom Applications:

We can supply oversized connecting rod lengths with machined threaded bung and Heim joint seperate (not welded) - Please advise in the notes section.

Considerations:

This is intended as a guideline to determine connecting rod lengths. Factors to consider may be obstructions such as fuel lines, air lines and electrical wiring positioned on the inside chasis rails. In most cases these items can be re-postioned to accomodate the connecting rod chassis brackets. Assumptions are made that an expereinced fabricator are completing the works.
