Default Need longer 5ive turnbuckles....are there any?

The geometry of my steering with a duel servo setup has me pushing one of my turnbuckles out just enough to keep breaking the plastic end. If i only had 1/4 more it would be fine. Are there any longer ones out there?

I bet your setup isn't right because when instaing my dual kits I've made my links shorter or a couple turns out.
I've installed a ds, GFR, and SNR kit.

what are the measurements center to center of the rod end holes for your application when you have your desired toe set ?

There's probably something out there but not specifically for the 5ive that I've seen. Which dual servo setup do you have? With both my home few setup and my GFR tray I only had to adjust the servo to bell crank rod a turn or two at most. Maybe post a pic and we can figure it out, or check out the lengths of the extended turnbuckles for the Baja FLM extended arm setup.

Post a pic of the problem turnbuckle and how you have your servo horns when the servos are at center.

Wtf?

My servo setup had/has no bearing on my steering rod setup at all. All my rods are box stock. I lined up my servos to the stock link.

SNR tray
Hitec servos
SNR servo arms (for now)
