    No pic, sorry...


    Mine just has a threaded rod.

    The rod has a point on it that rides directly in the end of the fork. The fork consist of two pieces. The fork itself and the clip that holds it on its pivot ball stud inside the bellhousing.

    The other end of the rod attaches to the z bar.

    Pretty simple. Just a threaded rod with a couple nuts and a threaded piece thats links it to the z bar.

    it's odd

    it's odd that the ajuster is the only thing that goes to the fork , i think it would where out the ball on the fork . it hard to believe gm did not put a ball stud to the adjuster . :doah:
