on the suspension bolts, is that just a center in the threaded end or are they drilled most of the way through?

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Some of you guys never miss a thing.

Machinist had to put a divot in the threaded end, I guess, to hold it properly in the lathe for cutting the threads, etc.

Very happy Bill called me and asked if a divot is okay.

Fuck no, it's not okay. None of my other hardware has that. I told Bill to drill it out. I do have plenty of drilled/lightened bolts.

Because I'm no engineer, I don't know how much I can drill out of the suspension bolts.

On these bolts, the hole doesn't go very far past the threads. Not fully drilled, for safety.

It might just be the photo but the second titanium piece looks like it’s a different shape?

Yes, in order to support the end of the part when threading, you have to use a live center. It goes into an angled hole in the end... but the walls on the hole there appear straight so I was thinking it might go (almost) all the way through to save weight.

If you were opposed to having a hole at all in the end, he would've had to make the parts longer and then cut off the depth of the hole.

Was this CNC or manual? I don't see a thread relief groove, which makes me think CNC.
