    Lindstad Alignment has developed a track-bar adjustable-end repair kit for the above mentioned models. When the track ball-joint end wears, the kit is installed at a fraction of the cost of replacing the complete rod. The kit is adjustable, which compensates for any future wear. Kits can be obtained by calling or writing the contact information provided above.
