You're doing the right thing, they can't expect you to wait forever.

I'm sure someone will suggest a better source.

Not a good sign..........especially from a vendor that has been around a while.
Neigh on three months is not the kind of service I expect from anyone but an insurance company.

Hotchkis has some nice ones but expensive, and I think RMS has a set similar to magnum force

I'm sorry you fell victim to that long haired rock star wannabe Ron character.

Give Bill at RMS a call.

Not sure anybody can dispute Bill at RMS was/is the longtime leader/innovator on quality aftermarket front ends for mopars. Only thing that bothers me more those without enough talent to design their own better"mousetrap", and then hide behind a copy, is someone who makes the mistake of copying a bad design.

I never stopped shaking my head on Bill's "upgraded" rear mopar 4 link suspension offering, and have seldom bit my tongue in that regard, but to resort to copying it, speaks volumes to me.

The comment above is in reference to the gerst rear 4 link suspension system.

While on the topic:


"A triangulated 4 link uses short and long control arms set at opposing angles to help keep the rear axle located and relies on a separate spring and shock for controlling travel over bumps and body roll control. Maybe a little better than leaf springs the 4-link still has issues with suspension bind in cornering as the upper and lower arms travel in different arcs. To compensate for this GM control arms are flimsy with rubber bushings to allow a lot of flex for a smoother ride but that means loose and lousy performance. When you make these arms solid and stiff plus add stiffer bushings it actually creates a worse bind situation and can cause a 4-link car to become more twitchy, less predictable, throw off the front suspension travel and lose traction everywhere."


From:

http://www.speedtechperformance.com/inde...prod/prd613.htm

AND GM and Fox body's share a similar triangulated 4 link design mentioned above.

I put a Alterkation on my Valiant ..

They are similar but, the Geerst one .. IMO

Is nicer

And it was considerably less and Carl will answer any question you have at any time .. his customer service is top notch

So far been 126.5 mph with it and it drives perfect and aligned with ease everyone that looks at says is nice

so I can very easily compare and recommend

I take it you didn't investigate the experiences of others who had ordered from this company before you purchased?!

Seems to be a common theme...

I'm not a front-end Guru but would it be possible to get enough adjustment out of adjustable upper control arms to get things. Adjusted and low enough without using a drop spindle.. or would shock length become an issue I wouldn't think you would require much travel upfront

The problem with some of these systems is the geometry is so far off parts bind up, then "BANG!".

I know that was the case with the POS AJE setup I had. It was so crappy you couldn't keep it from binding with 2" of travel.
