Last year I sent a message to Hensley asking if they had considered an adjustable stinger and they replied that they were concerned about the strength of that type of setup and that was why they had not offered it.

A non-answer.

Unless every engineer really has moved to India or China to have a hands-on career related to manufacturing then what their answer doesn't say is what counts.

Was studying this thread -- again -- as I remembered the work above (nice!) but couldn't remember if some "tilt" was added. I'll have to use my H/A for a while, again, on another Silver Streak until yet another is sourced & bought (time & money against me for the immediate present) in calendar 2012.

The parts I got from Sean included the pin and washers that allow for you to adjust the tilt. Ive only put about 1000 miles so far on mine and everything is still good. I'm making the trip to Florida soon so I'll be putting another 2500 miles or so on. I'm still happy with the setup, I really havn't changed anything since I changed trucks, but I would have had to buy two bars by now.
