    AFAIK, they made them for S10's and the late 90's/early 00's Fords too IIRC. But yeah, it's not like they have a bolt on coil over kit or something I personally might want.

    I'm Pretty sure it was a small family Company who made them and then sold them thru a couple websites.

    When I called to check on mine the lady said she just finished welding them and sent them shortly after ( I think this was shortly before they stopped making them). And correct me if I'm wrong but I thought the companys closing was due to a divorce?

    Any rate, theres obviously a small demand for these but I doubt realift had much overhead so they could make them when needed. ( my take on it )

    Yeah, I'm not trying to beat up on anyone's personal issues, but they look to me, (a Journeyman Machinist, Quality Engineer), relatively simple to make. For anyone. We're not talking about bringing back Oldsmobile here, were' talking about bending some metal and cutting a hex into it.

    Old thread I know. But I am interested in a set of these-and don't feel confident that I'll ever find a set. If someone has a set they can prepare some detailed photos of and detailed measurements, I'm all for having a set made by a machinist.

    They only thing I've noticed about them is the hex slot for the torsion bar doesn't appear to be straight, it looks a bit angled. Not sure if both left and right are at the same angle or if having the at an angle serves any specific purpose.

    I thought mine were pretty straight, but it's been a while since I installed them. (maybe they are angled a bit). If I recall they were marked side specific tho.
