Tall tie rods and turn buckle.

I have ordered from SC&C their pro-lite adjustable a-arms with xtra tall ball joints. And will order their tall tie rod ends. My question is, if you have done similar to this where did you get your turn buckles from? Mark tells me the tall tie rods are a little shorter then stock. And I need to get turn buckles that will take up the extra space lost (they come in various lengths). Does anyone have black powder coated ones of various lengths?

I did the SC&C deal, ordered the adj sleeves from Coleman racing. Mine were plain steel with wrench flats machined into each end. Really inexpensive, and be sure you order the lock nuts (2RH &2LH). C'mon Ted! Just rattle can 'em!

If you dig around on their site, I'm pretty sure you can find them in anodized aluminum as well that are hexagonal the entire length. A little more dough, but still reasonable. (I also needed a couple of longer adj sleeves for the upper a arms, got them from Coleman as well. Same basic deal, just bigger threads.)

All that said, I wound up actually installing stock type sleeves from NAPA.
