HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Modded RX7 Control Arms

Post  xschop on Sun Mar 06, 2011 2:05 am

Was able to get another set of these built....All 944 dims were CMM verified and transfered to the adapter dimensions. All new graphite impregnated 60a polyurethane isolators pre-installed. Also has a brand new set of replaceable 17mm ball joints and the adapter brackets are made out of 4140 steel that is 4x stronger than the Rx7 joint that was removed from the factory. T6061-T6 billet rear control mount adapters with new rear mount bolts. I will ship with new threadlocker nuts so you can select for either late or early offset position of the balljoint. You can also mount the bracket either on top (V8 swap/1" x-member drop) or below the arm for normal 944 geometry.....
I gave these a brushed alum look, but they are ready to paint if you choose. I shot mine with Red VHT caliper paint and it's still shiney after 4000 miles....
EDIT: Someone asked... they weigh only 7.7 lbs each fully assembled.....

$625 shipped in the U.S...... Just PM for details

Sway bar hookup made easy

Post  xschop on Sun Mar 06, 2011 8:56 am

The only mod you need to do is thread your factory sway bar links all the way to the bottom (m10 x 1.5 die) and trim them down.....

Factory on left, Modded on right......

Then cut off the excess to where only 1" length of threading shows.......

I've had this setup for years, with no issues at all. It's been nice to be able to actually replace the ball joints on a late car.

The caster is set at ZERO and I left 1/4" interface between the rear billet block and frame and will send 1/4" X-member/body spacers to help with V8 oil pan clearance as well. They will come with a brand new set of rear mounting bolts too (cap head), you just reuse the front X-member A-arm bolt.
Here's a detailed shot of the inner CNC machining of the rear bushing blocks that fit the aftermarket RX7 bushings perfectly. If you have a good spine there are off-the shelf Delrin inserts for the RX7 arms...

Guys, I sold every set already. I will make some more this winter. I am re-designing the adapter arm so a 17mm and 19mm Balljoint will bolt right up. Cool

This may be a stupid question but, I'm still learning about all the suspension upgrades and benefits. What are the bug benefits of this setup on an 88 turbo?
