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.

Crossmember Spacer Question

Post  jpkinerk on Sat Aug 31, 2013 11:48 am

So this is embarassing, but what are the four square 1/2 inch spacers for that come with the kit? Won't I just need the two 1/2 inch rectangular spacers for the crossmember?

The 4 are used for the cross member and the two rectangle are used for the rear of the A - arms.

I didn't use spacers and it didn't clear the hood. So we made an air vent where the throttle body comes up.

I had plates welded to the cross member and the control arm bolt holes line bored 1/2 higher. The four cross member plates were used but the two rectangle plates were not used. The original steering shaft is cut and a spacer is used welded and pined.




the (x) - my spacers are 1/2.  A math mathematician work it different. I didn't do that and added (x =1/2) I drive mine when ever no popping , no binding. all this is information for you to use for your own application. some people lower 3/4 so this diagram is for that drop.




The u-joints must have the same clocking so if you look to the left of Allen head a scribed line is on the shaft before cutting to match one on the extension.




I had the maker of the shaft cut out slots for more welding area this is not in diagram.






watch out for this when you get there you will need to turn around  the engine mounting bolt as to not hit the u joint on steering shaft.
