    Recently on the facebook page so one was talking about the replacement knuckle for the ram.
    I asked this same question then, but i don't remeber the answer -

    Where do i get the replacement part?

    Swampworks did the original upgraded “knuckle” or clevis.
    Don’t know if anyone else offers it aftermarket. Check with Tricky or JC at Meancycles.

    Thanks Chops.
    Research I've done was that Tricky wouldn't stand behind the product and Andy warranted all ones he'd sold at his own expense. I will chack with Tricky, but they'll be my last resort.

    What are you going to put it on? Did you get a stay of execution?

    I've still got the bike, I don't plan on selling something dodgy. I'll either fix it, or pass on the part if it sells before I receive it.

    I have Cad drawings for the clevis (rod end) off the Air Ride I made. Used a similar version of the air cylinder Tricky used in theirs. Has a bearing fitted. Can supply DWG files if you’re interested in getting something machined. Would need a CNC lathe.

    You're very kind Chops, that'd be ace.
    I'd be much happier giving you the cash than a machine shop if you wanted to whip one up.

    Not able to make myself anymore. Don’t have access to a CNC.
