You'll have to see these for yourself, but we're pretty confident that these are the beefiest TC rods ever made these cars!
Hah, I think these are the only rods made for these cars.

Awesome to see them making new specific stuff for our cars... I think they should be the people we need to get in touch with for our custom needs, since they have such a good reputation with quality parts and great prices.

I really don't think that that's a reasonable assumption to make. Even though Gabe hasn't jumped on this thread and said "look, we make Ma61-speciifc ones now", I really don't see them offering a part that has to be modded to suit MA61s as "Ma61-specific".

Oh, I see how it is. I ask if they could make a set for me with the bolts farther apart. Then I give them free publicity on my website that I spend nearly $100 a year on and they make what I asked for in the first place. Sometimes I wish I wasn't such a commie liberal that I could actually make some money.

Ok I'm not really that pissed, them again maybe I am!

im thinking of buying them soon. my frotn suspensin on the black car is hella stiff and being lowered 2in this would help the shocks do their job. though i think the front left one is blown. need to pull them out and check before the new motor is ready to go in.

Hehe as I stated before!!! This is what I don't want. If I'm going to get this I want them for my car.

FYI Not having to modify to fit. I mean god how hard can it be to make ones for our cars.

Just get another one thats a bit longer and then spread the bolts apart.

Its a lot goddamn harder and more expensive than for you to drill 4 holes one size bigger. If you dont like them, dont buy them, thats all it comes down to.

modifying your car is part of drifting. if your not using a drill, grinder, or welder. your not building a drift car. who cares if you have to drill out two holes. not many companies even care at all about mk2 supras we all already know that so we are lucky to find anything that works

Hey, i just installed these today but i ran into a few problems with my Whiteline adj swaybar being in the way. I found that the endlinks for the Whiteline adj swaybar fouled the Caster Rod where its bolted onto the LCA like in the picture below. (I realised how bad this picture was after i bolted everything together, as it looks like it could fit. But it didn't with me). And another problem was that at near full droop of the LCA, the Caster Rod arm (in the middle) fouled on the swaybar (no pic sorry).



So to overcome this i drilled two more holes further down the LCA and bolted the Caster Rod there as in the picture below. This fixed the fouling with the swaybar endlink on the LCA and also the swaybar fouling the Caster Rod arm.



Has anybody else installed these two products together? And did they experience any problems that i had? Or anything different problems?

I'll also post this in the Whiteline Adj Swaybar thread as its half relevent there too.

Cheers
Sam

I saw that too but once the car is on the ground there is a ton of clearance there. I would use the factory holes if I were you.

Thanks Wes, i replied to your post in the other thread.

Your probably right, i should use the stock location but after drilling the new holes and the stuffing around i did, i think i'll leave it how it is. And as i mentioned in the other thread i don't think my chassis is 100% striaght up the front end, so that has probably played into things a little bit aswell.

Wow Excellent Write up Wes! You have an excellent site there. Lots of good info for me. Some of these mods will definitely be the first I try.

THanks,
