If you would like a set of top links like mine (see above) let me know. They are NOW AVAILABLE for $235/pair from Hyper Sport Engineering (http://www.hyper-sport.net/main.html). This will include new bolts.

Kirt wants to know there is serious interest - like 10 people - if he is going to bother. So SPEAK UP! :-)

Not sure if these are relevent to < SE cars.

Yes, I would be interested in a pair. I have a set of Penske light-alloy dampers with spherical top/bottom joints. The top link set would be a nice addition.

I spoke to Kirt several years back when he was very first starting with Hypersport. It is great to see some items are starting to become available.

Cheers,

Hey Jon,

They are rose jointed as opposed to bushed. The trade off is accuracy (and sometimes hard noisey ride) vs. less accuracy (but more compliance).

Cheers,

I can try to take a better picture, if interested.

I'll put you down, Mike. Kirt seems to make a ton of parts, but most are one-offs. I think he just gets to busy to bother "mas-producing" them.
