Connecting Rods Application:

 

These rods are hot-forged Steel. This material is more durable and reliable than conventional cast iron, delivering greater anticipated life. As importantly, the powdered metal rods are stiffer than the cast iron parts they replace.

L26 Compatible with stock non supercharged 04+ Grand Prix pistons. Includes new bolts. New wrist pin bearings included(installed). This is a GM part, # 12593374.

Sold individually, 6 required for a set.

Engine balancing highly recommended.

Rods are symmetrical, they can face either way.

 

 

 Keep in mind when selecting components that full float pins in connecting rods and pistons make rapid assembly far easier,and while you generally can use pressed pin connecting rods and pressed in pins in full float design pistons if you wanted too, because all your effectively doing is eliminating the need to use the piston pin retention rings, spiro locks or buttons to keep the wrist pin centered in the pin bore, the best idea is to use the pins the pistons and rods are designed to be used with,.and yes point out that you generally can not use full floating pin connecting rods and piston pins in pressed pin design pistons because theres nothing to prevent the pin working its way laterally until its rubbing the cylinder bore and allowing the piston to run cocked in the bore as its not fully supported equally side to side.
