    Cool ProTrac Kit -- Steering Blocks

    I am working on installing my ProTrac kit, and it looks like my little one decided to throw away or hide the front steering blocks... :S

    Can I use aftermarket aluminum ones with it, or do I need to use the ones that came with the kit?

    pro trac does not come with ft c-blocks or bearing carriers. Use the originals or alum(better)

    Heh... I could have swore it did. I know it came with them for the rear. I just spent the past 2 hours digging around to try and find them.

    Thanks. Now I know I'm not losing my mind.

    Yes protrac comes with the rear only, and there are a lot of turnbuckle options on them.

    Is it better to use the included ones? Or would upgrading to Aluminum be just as good?

    I believe the alum links are a downgrade in durability. Any performance increase you prob wont even notice. If you want to upgrade the links, get titanium, but they too are pretty expensive.
