(yes, that's a technical term)

Can anyone tell me where to find a replacement eye bolt or whatever it's called that goes at the end of the ride height adjustment rod? Mine is wicked rusty.

motowheels has'em in the misc parts section.

One other alternative would be to just remove it take a wire brush to it to clean and treat it with anti-seize.

We have the adjustable billet ride hieght rods--but not the rod ends by themselves.

NCR makes a nice (but very pricey) adjustable Titanium rod that has the rod ends built in:

Its actually called a Heim Joint. Its going to be metric threads. You might be able to locate one online. They are usually sold at Race Car and Speed Shops. Although, i bet most shops just have SAE threaded joints. If all else fails soak it in some WD-40 and take some steel wool or a wire wheel to it!
