Thanks. Just finished a set of lowers.

If anybody needs an extra push to do it check out a comparison of stock axial 3mm thread versus the 8/32

Glad folks are getting good use out of this tutorial. Really is simple and opens a lot of possibilities in regards to different bodies, etc. you can use on your rigs.

Try this maybe, they've lasted 11 months and only one slight bend from falling off a cliff. :rock:

i have been looking also for the last week, i finally found threaded rod at pacific fasterns cause none of the metal supermarkets carried 6-32 threaded rod. i just need to get some tubing to go over it and then i will be done.

Looks like im going to have to go shopping for this stuff and try it myself. Been wanting links on my truck and nobody has had any instock but if i can save myself from spending $70 plus tax on them why not. Thanks for this.

Anyone know where in chilliwack or abby that i can get the 1/4" brakeline or stainless steel tubing. I going to check canadian tire here for the 8-32 allthread.

Also, you can also use 10-24 all thread, just need to make sure you tap the revo rod ends first. It add's a bit of weight down low and you'll never have to worry about bending one if you sleeve it with stainless haha. I picked up some stainless 10-24 from home depot.

10-24? Wow, that will be nice and strong. I didn't realize there was enough meat in the rod ends to let you thread for that large of material. Good stuff!
