Anybody use these on your car?

They are about the same price as original style and look like they would be friendlier to adjust. I don't want aluminum, but since these are steel they seem like they would work okay.

I have them on my 86 Monta Carlo SS...much better for adjusting than the old clamps plus you don't get road junk packed up into them...

I don't like the idea of aluminum for these. I just don't see how they could be as good as steel for strength in the threads.
I ordered aluminum ones for my '55, looked them over, thought about it, returned them and bought steel ones.

If you are using stock size tie rods then these are overkill. Also, they may look sexy but I would feel safer with the positive locking of the factory clamps. Looks like more of a race-only application or frequent inspection to assure nothing is loosening up.

IMHO I would trust sleeves with square ends and jam nuts before the camps any day.
