Anybody else had trouble putting on the two main ball links that screw on to the linkage arm,absolute nightmare bad design,i cant get them to thread properly as if the link is to small or something,looks like these links have a bad reputation.

You do need to take your time and install them carefully. After they are on I have not heard of anyone having problems with them.

No problem here with them. If it is difficult, you can use a Dremel tool and cutoff wheel to grind a small chamfer on the threaded end of the linkage. The plastic screws right on.

Thanx for the replies i found a tip from Ron Lund,he puts the Linkage arm in a drill and slowly drills them into the ball link,will try again with a new set of links.

The first part of that involves putting a small chamfer on the threaded link. It works.
