I have been searching the Internet for drop links for my f as when I fitted my rear coil overs there drop link plate was was a good 100mm higher than standard. So it got me thinking about making my own up with automotive rose joints. They will pass the mot with them as long as you get the rubber boots that cover them. I no there is more maintenance with them but they seem like a better option than standard drop links as they would be completely adjustable to user preference. Best website I found was this http://www.mcgillmotorsport.com/rod-end ... cessories/
The pricing seems reasonable and comes from a reputable company. So I've ordered what I need and when they turn and I've fitted them I will leave my feedback for them. What are your thoughts on Rose joints?

I made my own with rose joints and SS threaded bar. Much much better quality than the normal drop links that ebay horrendously sells. think there is a post on here somewhere...:scratch:

AND yes, they pass the MOT too :thumbup:

and cleaned up your other posts, understand - no worries :)

Okey, I don't have BJ, but I have Premacy, wich has same suspension as BJ.
But the point, I have BC-coilovers installed now. I use 626 GE droplinks in rear. They are just under 100mm long, so they fit fine in there.

Series 1 (pre facelift) bj has longer rear endlinks, that's what I used for my racingbeat rear swaybar install.
