.Features:
  • Super strong construction. By choosing the best materials, we've designed our adjustable strut rods to be the strongest after-market struts you can buy.
  • Extensively tested on the street and racetrack.
  • Built in steering stop on all models replaces stock piece.
  • Machined wrench flats on each end of tubes for easy adjustment.
  • CNC machined frame ends and 5/16ths thick laser cut LCA adapter brackets.
  • The stock rubber bushings have been replaced with a high quality, high strength chromoly rod end mounted in a custom designed billet steel bracket. This eliminates the stock bushings and binding problems associated with the stock strut, while allowing free movement throughout the suspensions range of motion.

Click on the below image to watch a YouTube video of stock Moog replacement bushings.  Watch how much they compress and stretch during normal driving at slow speeds.  This deflection results in the lower ball joint and steering arm moving around while driving.  This in turn alters the caster and toe resulting in a twitchy car that wanders all over the road.

The fix used to be to install polyurethane bushings.  This stopped the rod compressing and stretching but didn't allow the rod to pivot at the frame when the suspension cycles up and down.  The result is stress on the rod right at the threads which can eventually result in it snapping!

The fix is to install our Adjustable Strut Rods.  Not only do they eliminate the compression and stretching issues of the stock rod, they also allow the suspension to cycle up and down freely.  Oh, and the tube is left hand and right had threaded to allow for easy caster adjustment.

Click on the below image to watch the same car AFTER installation of our Adjustable Strut Rods.  Notice how smooth the suspension cycles up and down with no change in strut rod length.  This results in a much more stable car that drives straighter and won't dart all over the road under braking.

    These installed quick and look very strong. The range of adjustment will help get alignment perfect and it was very easy get the temporary settings dialed in. The loss of alignment days are over!

    I now have the new SOT strut rods installed. I'm really impressed by the handling of the car. It has improved and I'm very happy with it.
  • Jason S.
    The stock strut rods used to make the car wander so much under braking, I had to put the car in the middle of the track into 10a (Road Atlanta) because I never knew which way it was going to wander. With the Street or Track Adjustable Strut Rods I can put it right next to the grass at 142mph, nail the brakes and it stops in a straight line building confidence and making me faster

    I bought your strut rods about 5 months ago and put them on right before I put the car in the body shop to have my bent sheet metal repaired from my wild hard braking spin last fall. The improvement is amazing the car stops in a straight line, there is less bumpsteer when driving down a straight bumpy road! Thanks!

    The strut rods worked out great, no more darting under hard braking. I also noticed my corner entry and exit speeds picked up. Overall, the car was more stable and predictable at speed. The other guys I run with at Barber noticed it too. Glad to see a company building a quality product right here in the USA. Keep it up! I’ll be in touch with you later on, with some of the other items you offer.
