    When I was looking at the underside of my rig I noticed that the rod end is angled and I wasn't sure if this is normal. The bolt on the pass side going through almost looks bent.

    Just wanted to see if this is normal

    yes it is normal, there is a ball in there at the end of the bolt, if you grab the relay rod and twist it will rotate in the range of motion of the rod end.

    if it is set up right the right and left rod ends should be at the same angle to enshure they have thier full range of motion.


    BTW nice avatar :beer:
