What Is Currie's Problem ?????????????????

Have these people never heard of quality control?

Do they think they are in the days before Henry Ford when it never occurred to anyone that one could make interchangeable parts?

I am going through the same ridiculous crap the first time I built these bloody links. How long have companies been manufacturing nuts and bolts? When you go buy nuts and bolts do you have to try fifteen or twenty nuts before you find one that fits a given bolt? I don't think so. So what is Currie's problem? I have gone around with these people before and it took me a bloody month before I had a set of four joints and bungs that I could actually thread together. I must have done some select fitting even then because I am now going through the same stupid farce all over again.

I needed to redo my front lower links because they were too long. So I redid them and now I am trying to find some combination of ends and bungs that will actually thread together. HAH! Rotsa ruck sucker. Thought I had a combination that would work. Turns out the end I thought would work changes thread diameter three times in three inches. 990 to 993 is standard for a one inch thread. 998 jams up tighter than a drum. Duh... Who machines this stuff? Some octagenarian drunk running a lathe that is older than he is that has never had minimal maintenance much less been righted?

I actually know of a case where someone had an axle built by them and it was shipped with all the brackets mounted upside down. These people should have a worse reputation than Rusty's Offroad.

I'm not sure how I'm going to put together my four link. There are not a whole lot of options out there. But I will guarantee you that Currie components will not be in the picture.

Bah!!! Humbug!!!
