    Salty swing arm on Fuego

    This was addressed in the old format but I can't figure out how to get there. Anyway, any tricks to putting a Salty swingarm on my wife's Fuego?

    But I called Teresa about this a few months ago. If your wife's Fuego is a bearing model, then all you need to get 4" of rear travel is a set of Salty rockers, not a whole rear triangle. As far as I know, the bushing model rockers are not compatible.

    A set of rockers was ~$150 when I spoke to Teresa.

    Yep, that's correct. Assuming it's a bearing-pivot model then the only difference is the rockers themselves.

    So bushings models are not compatible?

    Yuk. I already have the stock rocker arms from my Salty resting in my toolbox.

    If you have a bushing Fuego, we have adapters to adapt the new bearing rear end to it. It does require a trip through the factory for machining of some additional clearance at the lower pivot however. After that, the bearing swing arm will bolt right up.

    Call Teresa if you are interested 916 631 0544 x 203
