Brilliant, I don't know why I didn't think of that. I have 2 arms, but no mounting hardware. The sets come with a 90deg and 180(inline) for the servo side. I have 2 of the inline ones leftover which I was able to drill out with a 5/16" drill on the drill press. With 3/16x5/16 flanged bearings, It fits on the stock steering posts but is a little short, will need a small shim to keep it from moving up and down on the post.

The bulkheads come up occasionally, I was able to get 2 of each over the past year and a half or so. The easy way to spot the difference is that the +10 degree one has an undrilled top while the standard shape one has holes for mounting the brace on the molded chassis cars.

i think i use some 3/16 wheel shims like the ones that come with cvd kits. i bought a ton of these when bolink sold out on ebay a few years ago they really came in handy.
