AVID EB/ET410 Ti shock standoffs V2 & TLR 22 king pin screws

See: AVID Racing Concepts

AVID have introduced new titanium shock standoffs V2 for the Tekno EB410 and ET410 and titanium king pin screws for the TLR22. The shock standoffs use the keyed shock bushings and include AVID’s FastTune feature which allows you to use a common 1.5mm Allen wrench to prevent the standoff from spinning while using a 5.5mm socket wrench on the other side. The other solutions out there require you to either take the shock completely off the standoff to reach the 7.0mm nut or to use a 7.0mm open-ended socket wrench. Don’t forget, you also get to lose some weight from the highest point on the car by switching from steel to titanium.
