    For what they want on ebay for them, think I'll make my own. A pair of the long ones at $26/each and a pair of the short ones at $15/ea would be $82 which seems a bit proud for what they are. Why yes, I am a cheapskate

    I understand they weren`t cheap but it was just a example that they are out there. It may be worth it to do a search or buy Jim`s set. Just don`t rely on the ones I posted as it was a quick search. Just trying to help.

    Not a cheapskate at all.
    Monetairy efficiency is a good thing!

    $82 for a set of four is a bit of an ouch.
    For $2 in 3/16" steel, 4 cuts, 8 holes and 16 noched corners.
    The flat bar adds some dimensional stability/ridgigity that using washers alone wouldnt.

    Thanks everyone. I'll be able to make my own as well if I end up needing them.

    My automatic left curve switch seems to have failed, and this might be what it takes since the tires look right.

    That's crazy money for them. I can't think of what I've done with the few I've found over the years. I know they've come in handy in other applications where I needed a piece of steel with holes in the ends. If I had to, I bet I could come up with the box of long ones from the crate of suspension bolts. Maybe. Lol!

    Yes, I had to restrict my access to them to quit using them on random dumb stuff.

    I was just being goofy. Not really a cheapskate, more like financially responsible

    On the way home tonight, my mind drifted into thinking about the brake problem and the hard pull to the right. Since it's had a slight pull when braking for a long time (probably since I built the car) and now is much worse with higher friction pads, I had a thought,,,,,,,,,,LOOK OUT. When I was bedding in the new pads, I noticed the pedal seemed a bit soft and I wonder.....................Could there be air trapped in the left caliper? It could explain a braking pull. Before I do anything else and I can't drive the car anymore this year, I'm going to try bleeding that side and see if any air comes out. Maybe I'll get lucky and it's a simple as that. Guess I'll find out.

    Just wondering. Wouldn`t the air bubble worked it`s way out by now. Maybe the caliper piston is sticking or hanging up?

    Wife almost ditched our Doba this spring because of that. Right front engages before left. Sloppy steering box makes correction slower if you aren't prepared and I forgot to remind her. Oops. I need to learn to rebuild them. There will come a day when they're no longer available. How hard can it be? It's got to just be a tiny burr of rust on a piston from not bleeding them regularly in mistake of assuming a sealed system doesn't self contaminate, while brake fluid attracts moisture.
