    Delrin is quite stiff right? I mean I know it is because I am a machinist. But they perform pretty well? I wonder how UHMW would work? Doesn't Delrin also change size quite a bit with temp changes?

    yes, delrin is fairly stiff but it also has more flexibility than the uhmv. No it shouldn't change much with the temp. And yes they perform very well.

    I'm in still, but have been on vacation. If I have any paypal money left on my unverified account, I'll send it. Otherwise, I'll get something in the mail tomorrow.

    Yes. Just send a deposit and measurement to the above info.

    Not sure what your buying these for but just to clarify these are the mark Viii pieces. I haven't messed with the t-bird stuff and I'm not sure how much is different and how much is the same.

      ok guys,

      bulk of the work is done. I still have to machine the car specific knuckle bushings but otherwise they are finished. Working on instructions, and will try to have them in a box this coming week. Thanks everyone, sorry its been so slow.

      $400 + shipping (most likely $10-15)

      $50 deposit/set

      Final bill will be sent when product is in the box and ready to ship. Your $50 deposit will be taken off your final $400(+ shipping) price.

      I will also need a measurement of the width of your upper knuckle on each side. The bushings have to be custom made for each set specific to your car because of tolerance issues.

      Paypal info is:

      ibboonie81@hotmail.com

      Check or money order can be mailed to:

      Cass County Machine Inc.
      11832 Arenz Ln
      Beardstown IL 62618

      If sending a check/mo just shoot me a pm or let me know. It seems with the mail these days one never knows how long it will take.[/QUOTE]
