Whiteline adjustable toe links

I am about to install these bad boys. Love the way they look and they have a booted spherical bearing on one end and the poly bush on the other. Anyone has these or heard of them. They look killer in person.

They look like they would hold up, but don't they need to be adjusted with an alignment?

Met the owner of whiteline a couple times. Seen his car, seen him race. They have been in the vette market for a while. So deff not a new company that wont stand behind their products.

One word of advice, make sure you get those jam nuts real tight, because if they start loosen up, the car will get very loose in the back...I know this from experience with another brand...

Nothing I tighten comes loose trust me, plus I always use Loctite. Hey also guys, the car actually handle better with these than it did with the BMR spherical toe arms. Corners sharper and wraps around corners better.

Ok bad news guys not even a month and these Whiteline pieces are toast. Looks like the ball bearing end doesn't articulate like the BMR pieces and look what happened. Thank God I was driving at legal limits. I was actually doing like 20 mph when it let to.

The toe rod is a very simple design and you honestly don't get a better mounting design than a spherical rod end since they articulate very well and can handle the abuse of high horsepower and racing. Our BMR spherical rod end toe rods should perform much better than the Whiteline ones you have because the Whiteline toe rods uses a spherical rod end (different design than ours) on one end and a poly-urethane bushing on the other end. The poly-urethane bushing will only articulate so much before it binds and they are not well suited for higher horsepower cars or a bunch of racing.

If you can post up some pictures of the broken toe rod, I would really like to see what happened. I am surprised the spherical rod end gave out since the poly-urethane bushings should really be the weak point of that toe rod.

When you stop taking all the Popcorn. I see someone doesn't like to share. LOL. As you can see the end with the booted bearing rotates on 1 axis and is not like the BMR spherical QA 1 end. At first I thought they were just too stiff and would have loosen up after a few miles but I was wrong. Had I realized this I wouldn't have installed them. Honestly I expected this to happen.
