Adjustable toe rods

I am in the market for some toe rods, just 2 many too choose from
I already installed the Pfadt solid subframe bushings and have not drove the car with these installed. Maybe over the weekend. Anyone switch to toe rods with rod ends and didn't like the noise they make?? I could live with some noise. I came across Lingenfelter units that are teflon lined rod ends. Any help some someone that is running rod ends in there toe rods would be great. Thanks.

The Lingenfelter arms have proven to be highly reliable.

I suggest going with the Spohn Toe links Part # C10-605 with the Chrome Moly upgrade.

We have been using them for years on our JDP Camaro and they are holding up great!


Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions or pricing.

Best regards,

They sure look nice, just wondering if they transmit any road noise.

All spherical joints transmit more noise than an OE rubber bushing. All spherical joints will rattle. It isn't a question of if. It is a matter of when. On a race car it doesn't matter. On a street car it only matters if the driver doesn't like rattles.

There isn't much information in your signature about your 5th Gen. Why are you lookig for adjustable toe links?

I really don't need adjustable. I don't think I will ever make any adjustments on my own. Just like rod ends I guess . Just got off the dyno and made 741 rwhp and installed some drag radials. The car is just a toy for the street and to bring to the track every now and then.

Your 1LE already has sealed monoball joints in the OEM toe links so you won't have to spend a dime on them.

We have our BMR adjustable toe rods with rod ends (TR004) that sound like they would be a very good option for you. We utilize QA1 XM series rod ends in these toe rods which are teflon lined so the added noise is minimal but the rod ends are a wearable item so as the mileage increase on them you will notice a little more noise. These are the same toe rods we use on our BMR 2010 Camaro shop car that runs 9.8x with 1.3X 60ft times so they will take anything you are going to throw at them.

A tubular toe rods is going to be much stronger and offer less deflection than your factory toe rods will so it would be something I would highly recommend especially considering how much power you are making.

I use these on my street-driven car and I did not notice ANY increase in road noise or NVH. They're an incredibly strong piece that certainly helped me get rid of the dreaded wheel hop.
