    Anyone else have issues installing toe links with the Knuckle to toe spherical bearing in place? Seems like the links were designed for the stock bushing width and the bearing is a touch wider.

    Not sure it’s worth the effort of trying to widen them and possibly cracking a weld or something. Might re sell if anyone is interested.

    Its fine. Spread it.

    Its a shame Ford Performance can't seem to get things right these days. Really sad. 20200626_175012_HDR.jpg

    The UPR links are boxed in so it’s going to be a huge pain to bend them like that. Would think the aftermarket should know to take this into account.

    Don't be silly.

    The aftermarket builds parts that fit factory spec components. The FP bearings are too wide.

    Its a Ford Performance issue. Period.

    Ended up bending them to fit with a rubber mallet and a 2x4 as an anvil.
