Installed my Thuren drag link and new SmartBar.

I got my steering wheel almost dead centered with the Thuren drag link. From what I read. It would be close but not centered.

The SmartBar weights about 75 lbs. It's not light.

Took the new SmartBar apart to see how much grease is in it. It's not packed, but everything is coated.

Took the old SmartBar apart. From other posts, and pictures. I was expecting the housing to be filled with dirt and mud.

The 1st pic. Have some play in the housing. When I push up on the bar. It wiggles.

The other pic's. No mud, or dirt inside the housing. I thought there would be some. Everything is still coated with grease.

Just in time for Rausch Creek!
Yep! I still have to install the bypass yet. This weekend I hope.

You still want a SmartBar to play with?
