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 …

Another FYI is to use the correct O-ring around the strut insert or it will clunk inside the strut housing. Koni, KYB, and Monroe are all machined a little different from each other on the insert O.D. Shocked

So, does the adapter for early control arms give you the ability to have correct alignment settings (camber) when using late spindles on an early (strut and control arm) car?

The lower diagram needs to be updated to give it more material around the bottom bolt, although the dims are CORRECT for corrected camber. Very Happy

This technique is actually easier.......if you have a set of old LATE struts laying around....

I have some extra early (screw cap) strut tubes, that I'm going to bolt on some 87' Late spindles, then into my early offset 85/2 control arms.

My only concern (Your adapter is pretty straight forward.... simple means its a good design Smile ) is my camber. I want to keep the stock ride height, and stock/street camber settings. The bilstien inserts will only work with the screw top strut tubes, so I have to keep the early offset thing going. I just want the stronger 87 spindles.

I know I've discussed all of this with you before, but I'll be damned if I can find that thread over on RL.

Simply put, the entire X dimension 1.02 needs to be raised 1/4" and the lower bolt hole drilled 1/4" higher.

So this? (Corrections to the right of the "before" measurements"

That's about the jist of it. Start with 1.5 x 1.5 material. I used 4140. It's mega strong and welds nicely.

Actually, its not right. I just spotted my error Smile. The ".25" measurement should remain the same on the top of the lower hole.................... nevermind Smile I know the error, and trying to explain it would just cause confusion.


The object is to bring the camber more positive (Lower part of tire out)...

That's correct. It allows the Late spindles with 15* to set where the Early spindles (11*) were at ZERO camber (early arms/offset). It takes about 1.5 hours on a manual mill to knock a set of those out. Do it once and do it right. Ferreels and fosho.

Xschop,
Would you be willing to make a set of spindle adapters? I have a 86 n/a that I am putting turbo spindles on.

+1 I'd be interested in a set as well.
