Here are pics of the dogbones. They really arent that bad other than the right side (as you sit on it) rubs on the spring and the left side has a slight angle ( kinda like / but not as sharp). Is it ok for it to be at an angle or should it be straight? Lemme know if you can hook me up with something or help me figure it out. I was going to get a metal spacer for the left side so it made the dogbone 100% straight and then space the right side out so it didnt rub the spring but I didnt know how safe it was for the dogbone to be set like that

gotcha.

i, personally, would just get a longer grade 8 bolt and a few spacers to get everything straight. doesn't look like you'd have to space it much, so i can't see any reason why you'd have any problems as long as you use good quality hardware. it's definatly best to have the dogbones straight.

I was going to do that just wanted to make sure it was safe first. Guess I know what my next purchases will be :)

Where can I get a couple nice strong bolts to use? I need 2, one for the lower linkage and one for where the bones bolt to the swingarm

any good hardware store would have grade 8 bolts and nuts, even in metric sizes.

Just for the sake of general knowledge, by "or better" do you refer to grade 7 or grade 9???
