Would something like this work?

I was struggling to describe what was in my head with words... it's been one of those day. So i drew a picture for you!

Yeah... I think so. I was going to try a few things with the OEM split pin. Cutting it into two smaller pieces and pin the top and bottom separately was my first guess and should work.

Will let you guys know how it goes.

The stock pin is too thick for me to manipulate they way I want to and still get the rod through the axle. Going to have to try something else or purchase that Gilles locking nut.

Gilles nut :007: it looks cool, doesnt require a pin, dont need to tighten it past the correct torque to get the slots to line up and its titanium. The weight saving alone has got to be worth 1bhp lol.
