Found Them

Was beginning to think I could not find linkages. :surrender:
I was looking for the ball & socket adjustable links that set height from torsion bar to level valves. Mine are damaged and worn.
With one of the links, Went to TWO dealers, and twice order them, only twice to get the wrong part and twice to return the part. :eek:
Two different parts from dealer - they look like links, but one was suspension link, the other ???
Called numerous salvage yards. No links found.
Cannot tell you how many hours I spent on the web searching for the part.
Then just one more Google search, and after a half-hour, there they were, in a picture, with a part number, and I ordered two.
We will see what I get.:rolleyes:

I wasn't exactly sure what you were looking for. I kind of assumed that is was SLS-related. If your latest effort doesn't pan out it may tip me in favor of buying the trashed 88 TE that showed up locally. Parts cars are a *good* thing.

When they arrive

If the links I receive are the right part, I'll post the PN and URL. If not, I'll keep looking. The picture was exactly what I need. We will see what I get.
Waiting.

BTW: was going to replace all four calipers, largely because the L/R was sticking OCCASIONALLY. But the L/F is a hard to get item. After 6 weeks backordered, I cancelled the L/F. I had already replace both rear calipers.
Will return R/F. 1987 and hard to get parts?... Perfect brakes now.
Dealer can get them, but OUCH---the price.

Had to Cancel

Emails said the links were going to be backordered, would I be interested in a different brand. I cancelled.
Meanwhile a dealer parts guy sent me a fax with the correct parts listed. So I ordered from the dealer, ironically, the parts were less expensive.
As before; waiting to see what I get.
Will post part numbers if they are right.
Later.
