LSR Performance Billet Toe Links now available!!



Billet rear toe link for Camaro SS and V6 models. Crafted from billet 6061 aluminum for strength and beauty. These replace the factory, stamped steel, toe links and provide decreased unsprung weight and increased stiffness to improve suspension response.

They also include significantly firmer bushings to reduce suspension compliance, and prevent excessive toe deflection upon cornering, braking, and acceleration. Designed using Finite Element Analysis to optimize strength to weight. Easy to install and require no permanent modifications to the car.

Product Highlights

* 40 percent less weight than the stock link. 1.2 vs. 2.0 lbs
* Reduced toe deflection in cornering, acceleration, and braking
* Slots machined into part to retain ABS wire clip location and function
* Lifetime warranty on links, one year warranty on bushings
* Does not require alignment following installation

Look nice but do you think these have more or equal torsional strength than steel?

Sorry it took so long to get ananswer to this but, this is what the engineers said.
The toe link is not really a torsional member. It’s mainly loaded in tension/compression. As the suspension compresses and rebounds the knuckle does rotate a little due to the angling of the virtual lower control arm and that rotation does impart a small amount of torsion into the arm but the amount of rotation is small and, thus, so is the induced torsion. If it were loaded in torsion by any significant amount, it would be round like driveshafts and axles.
The smallest cross-section of the billet links is double what the smallest cross-section of the OEM part is and our material strength approaches that of typical stamping steels. Similar strength combined with more cross-sectional area means a stronger part.
I think this answers your questions. If you have anymore ill be glad to try and get a nswer to them. Thanks for asking.
