yes i have them installed intergy carriers are the bomb

if they are a little tight and rub just take a tiny bit of material off at the ends until they move nice and free

p.s dont over tighten them like i did just use crap loads of loc tight on the nut and bolt and leave them loose
FORRRR SPPPAAARRRTTTAAAAAA!!!

Think about replacing the bottom pin,,the one Integy uses is too soft,,& bends easily.

TCS sells replacement 12.9 pins for like $5.

Other than the pin Integy rear hubs are great.

Yup, I have them on my truck, and they work beautifully. Just have to shave a little bit off the inside of the ends to fit them.

Jut make sure you get the HD ones. The lighter, prettier ones are garbage. The ones you want look like the ones in this pic:

Garbage? :?

Come on now,,Ive ran them for yrs,,and still running them.

Are the HD ones better? probably
They look very beefy compared to the standard,,and they are only $10 more,,
I aggree,,,for the small amount of cash,,buy the beefier set.

The stock knuckles are garbage
But by no means are the standard Integy garbage.

Ahhhh Crap :roll:
I never thought I would ever argue which Integy part is superior :lol:

NO WAY!!

They are not there on your original link!!

Thanks for that, they are way cheaper than the Great Hobbies ones as well.

Oh and what do you mean about the 12.9 grade pins?


Cheers

they are in the link on my PC,,IDK why you couldnt see them?

the long bottom pin from integy is weak & soft,,bend way too easy.

look at TCS crawlers,,they have replacement bolts,,that are super strong.

I see TCS has hd integy hubs too.
