    Not really.

    Even though I prefer Auroras, I buy FKs as that is what most misalignment's are made to fit. Takes a lot of the guess work out of it.

    I am looking to do a similar project - what size of heim joint is recommended, and who is a good supplier?

    I'm going to be looking at half inch heim joints for mine. Think I'll run 2 on each J-arm and trailing arm for mine, spaced about an inch apart. Then run a grade 5 bolt through them. Since I'm looking at running either a Honda Rebel 234cc (Rebel 250 engine), Lifan 200cc, I should be fine strength wise. I may go with double a-arms all around in a revision build, but I want to see what I can do with this setup first.
