IVA Covers for track rod end and drag link?
 
Any ideas what I can use to IVA-proof the top ball joints and track rod ends?

Might be off at a tangent here, but i think ive seen people using the shroud's of steel wire armoured glands on locostbuillders?

Ta,

for the top ball joints ive seen a large nut cover split with the rounded end removed. This is how they did it on the westfield from a race car is born. For the track rod ends you could use large heatshrink??

gland covers from SWA cable glands work great and look spot on

if your lazy you can buy them from kitspares http://www.kitspares.co.uk/shop/item.php?product=5093

thay are a little longer than some of the gland covers i have seen and the track rod one you can cut the large end off to use for the outer nut so both are coverd
