install pix

Loads of angle! we love it!!

This was shot through the bumper, as you can see we have the U turn radius of a tank

Before you get started with install, look closely at ths dimple punched in the subframe near this nut and bolt. You have to slice the bumps off the inside of the subframe with a cut off wheel to get our (flat) bearing side spacers to slide into the subframe. (and you should spray paint the cut steel black again)

We covered up the tie rod and rack offset spacer with a (universal fit) long rubber shock boot from a local off road truck accessory shop.

This car came to us with 25mm wheel spacers, and adjustable upper arms, so we dialed out the LCA and the UCA 25mm each and ditched the wheel spacer. However I must caution everyone that this is the absolute longest we could go on this customers tein Z33 inner tie rods. We recommend S14 inner tie rods for the most thread overlap with the turnbuckle for strength. This car has a wheel and tire size of 18x9.5+12 235/40/18

In these next few shots you can see the contact surface of the aluminum knuckle has been sanded down for MAX angle.
You can grind little by little to find the right amount of bumpstop for your car's setup to tune the final angle to the wheel size & offset.

When you are mounting the gold knuckle bracket, you have to tighten the left and right bolt little by little to bring up the bracket flat. If you tighten one side all the way then go to do the other side it will not line up nearly as well.

Another shot of the bump stop surface contact near full lock

This is the position you want the Compression (caster) rod end joint when the car is in the air and the suspension is at full droop. That puts the ball in the happy spot when the car is at static ride height.

The way you get it in position is with the car in the air, angle the joint into position with a screwdriver and then clamp the rod end receiver.

A customer already crashed their car into a wall! Whats important to see here is that the compression rod absorbed the crash energy instead of the subframe mount. He also bent the little tooth on the rack offset spacer. That rod/spacer is cheap and easy to replace. The remainder of the kit was unharmed. (we have new parts on the way to him now at $150 shipped)
