    Ok so it's off the car. I put mine in a vice. You can barely get a spoke of the tribar.

    Used heat and a stout impact. Couple cycles did it.

    Hey guys I need some help! I just bought a 4lb caged lower from a member on here. However I need the locking hub and I'm not sure if anyone is making them anymore? I'd like to buy one.

    I'd really like to try running this setup and ditch the 2.6 upper!

    I messaged the OP recently and he doesn’t have anymore locking plates. I’d be interested if he ran a batch of them as well.

    The locking plate any machine shop should be able to knock out pretty quickly. It's the studs that were custom and difficult to get

    That sucks. I'd definitely buy a couple of them. I guess I try running it without one...

    What's the part number for the bushing? Reading back it was suggested to use this one 5546T56 McMasters website but that's 60 strength. I hear you now want to use an 80 strength and I didn't see that listed

    It looks like the lower I bought might have the 60 in it, as it's a orange color.

    I just took mine off after 500 miles, to give it a thorough inspection and clean it up. Even though there is no visible deflection in those bushings, I'm going to change them out for the 80 hardness.

    Sweet thank you. I messaged CJMach428 and he said he's now running these... He said the hole is square and needs to be drilled out so it's a circle. dorman MTM 02601

    Don't even try it as you can look back through this thread and see what happened to my lower in about 20 miles with out the locking plate. Check out post #222 on how I did the studs on my original prototype unit which is still on my car this way. I'll pm you about the locking hubs.
