DNX408 Ackermann link mod

The DNX408 ackermann link is made from a pressed alloy plate and uses two steel bushings which the screws pivot inside.


The bushings and link piece are keyed to stop the bushings from rotating and possibly wearing the link and creating slop prematurely.   The parts generally have a fairly loose feel and the bushing can move inside the ackermann link – which could eventually create slop.  To make things more secure, and stop the bushing from moving, our team drivers threadlock the bushing in place.

Using threadlock means you’ll be able to heat the parts up to disassemble them if needed – rather than a more permenant fixing which would be hard to disassemble.  The threadlock just needs to stop the insert from moving around by filling the small gap around the edge.

Doing this procedure will reduce slop and extend the life of the parts.
