if we were like 99% of the other companies out there we would say, whatever who cares youre modifying your suspension, its to be expected..
so today we worked out all the ideas for gettting a...
looks like i know what im doing today
and just to be clear this is one of our top priorities at the moment, i really do not want to make this take any longer then necessary. i am just relying on others for the use of their alignment...
my car hasnt moved since installing the extenders, awaiting the alignment rack at my friends shop to have a long opening to be able to adjust whats needed to be adjusted and go from there. *fingers...
got the final prototypes on the car, just waiting on my friend to take it to get an alignment. the angle of the tie rod and control arm are nearly parallel. (better then the first pic i posted)
drilling the spindle takes no more then 5 mins. not a huge deal.. and making a part like that (if it were to work) would cost FAR too much to make it worthwhile to anyone.
same angle suspension loaded and unloaded.
spent the morning roughing out a prototype and am pretty pleased with the static results of the solution. ill post up pics here in a second. CLOSE to parallel.
please do. id much rather make a supplemental piece to allow for the use of these since clearance is greatly improved.
by extending, you mean spacing them further up or down to allow for proper angle?
so on the issue of bump steer:
On my car (original test car) there was minimal bump steer, or at least not enough to weigh out the benefits of doing the flip.
On a customers car, he had a...
wheel and tire combo play the biggest role. with subframe trimmed and pass. side notched i used to lay frame with my old hps set up and different wheels.
With my futuras i couldnt lay without...
tie rods pop out nice an easy with the pickle fork :thumbup:
yup. and theres no way of it to come out since theres a nut on one end and the end of the tie rod on the other.
cell pic for now.. looks a bit odd in the pic, but its firmly planted on the ground:
theres pics of the clearance and such that have been up on my fb..
Horrible cell pics, but this one shows clearance when axle it touching frame on drivers side:...
got my new struts in.. design was slightly different and smaller diameter then my first set of xl's.. new ones slipped right in after removing powdercoat.
lays frame nice an solid across the whole...
what results? clearance wise.. driving wise?
with drivers side axle hitting the frame tie rods have ~1" of clearance until touching the frame. went from not laying subframe to subframe solid on...
