SpeedDirect Rod Links Clutch Linkage

SpeedDirect Rod Links for Jeep CJHaving problems finding a good enough replacement clutch linkage for your Jeep? Now you can replace that sloppy, worn clutch linkage with a new style, zero free play, rod end bearing linkage, designed specifically for 1972 through 1986 CJ Jeeps. Even new, original linkage is sloppy and wears quickly which causes more problems. Designed as a direct replacement for factory linkage, the bearing ends provide a more durable component and very smooth operation. Annoying squeaks and rattles are also eliminated. The teflon-lined bearings require no lubrication and are self-cleaning therefore no maintenance is required. The rod ends also allow up to 15 degrees of pivot to accommodate for frame flex while off-roading! The pushrods are upgraded to a stout 9/16" OD with 3/8" mounting hardware. Extensions for body lift kits are also available.

These kits are engineered as a simple bolt on. All the needed hardware is supplied. This includes the upper and lower push rods, rod ends, spacers and hardware. Spherical rod end linkages are an excellent way to update a Jeep with better technology and provide a very clean look!
