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 …

Bump steer

Post  dsrracer on Thu Aug 04, 2016 6:23 pm

I've made a few posts but only recently do I have the parts to really make progress. I want to put the engine in next week and have started thinking forward. I know the 1/2 spacers affect steering geometry but I don't know how much. As a street conversion has anyone felt the need to correct the geometry to avoid the bump steer change? Is it important or kinda trivial?
Thanks

when i put my car together i cycled the suspension with the 1/2" spacers and bump steer was minimal. in the 1200km ive put on my swap i havent thought about bump steer at all.

Thanks for the input. It doesn't sound like this is an issue.
Probably like any project, the things you worry about turn out to be no problem at all and the things you don't worry about end up taking a huge amount of time.

i should add, that my 1200km has been shaking the car down and some spirited street driving. on the race track it may be a completely different situation.

check your ball joints for play, along with every bushing, tie rod ends, steering rack, etc. these cars are between 25 and 33 years old, cars dont get better with age.

when i bought my car it drove smooth and good, no vibrations or anything. when i tore it down for the swap everything was tight and felt good. after i was done the swap i had a steering wheel vibration at 100 km/h. i went through checking everything was tight and trying to figure out what i did wrong, couldnt find a thing. i finally found it when i checked the ball joints with the jack under the control arm, they were loose. i chalked it up to be the difference in the ride height (i put in some drop springs, but with my swap the motor is lighter than stock so i ended up pretty close to the same ride height) and dropping the cradle put the ball joints into a more worn spot. rebuilt them and no more shaking.
