thought i'd get it right, seeing as i work at an engineering firm

As for the grade, was going to use 6061 t6 or 6082 t6. But then i realised rad used 7075-T61 in the caliper hangers.

I'm thinking of using the 7075 then getting it hard anodised once it's machined. Mainly to keep corrosion at bay, But then is 7075 overkill as i'm pretty sure the stock links are not anything aproaching that grade.

what do you think



As for the links wereing, bearings are fine and torqued correctly.
