May be interested in a set already installed in new arms

Shouldnt be a problem. It just takes a large (20 ton) press and adapters to get them out and in, so we are going to offer it for people who dont have a local machine shop to use, or want to go ahead and put new arms on at the same time, I think the Moog arms are like $80 on rock auto and the GM/delco arms are like $125ish.

So, all metal work( dimension, metal, etc etc) are the same except for the bushings/inserts between ZL1 and SS? I am asking since I thought of buying a ZL1 radius arm would benefit my SS. Then all I have to buy are the inserts then?

The ZL1 uses the same as the SS, along with the 1LE. The Z/28 arms are the only ones that have a different part number, but the only difference is the inserts, but GM doesnt sell them separate.

How are the bearing inserts doing for everybody? road noise wise and potential wear points, I'm wondering if these will take the slight deviation under braking that seems to give me some steering input at high speed not enough for me to be worried about it but these might be the ticket either that or I need to run maybe a touch bit of tow in , I have the aluminium inserts and castor plates in and love the stability it created at speed its just under hard breaking car seems to search road deviations more so running sport 4 tires at 210 kpa

Sorry for the lack of updates, I have gone through several tweaks of the adjustment tool based on feedback from my early testers. The final ones should be ready soon. I have this huge box of joints that I would love to be selling! I would just prefer to ship 100% finalized adjustment tools, the key to these lasting indefinitely is routine adjustment (so far I have only had to adjust my personal setonce in 14k miles), so I am trying to make it as painless as possible.
