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 …

Front A arms

Post  Admin on Thu Jun 11, 2009 12:39 pm

Does anyone have the info from PH that was discussing the idea of tubular A arms? I would like to maybe try to build a set.
Has anyone ever built a tubular front cross member? Shouldn't be that hard and would give us the ability to not have to MOD the oil pans.

A-Arms

Post  xschop on Thu Jun 11, 2009 12:53 pm

Did anyone keep the info on the RX7 arms that I started. I'm waiting to here back from a shop that has them on a CMM.
I will build billet adapters that bolt them to the 944 rear control arm locations. But you can mod up the RX7 metal rubber stay to match the 944's 68mm spreadwidth. (You can also get POLYURETHANE, I have the graphite impregnated because it machines easy) The balljoint pivot can be adapted to the 944 pivot dims when the coordinates are found.This will allow for swappable Early 944 ball joints to be installed. And here's the real kicker.... just unbolt the plate and move it to the top of the control arm (it's bolted to the bottom from factory) and you'll have a perfect 1" drop to make up for a 1" X-member drop for the V8 swap.....It's coming
Oh yeah, almost forgot.......POPP

reasons

Post  xschop on Thu Jun 11, 2009 1:17 pm

check out the dimensions. The main reason why I chose this control arm to mod up for the 944 is the X-member insertion dimension.....a copy of the 944's and the fact that an adapter plate can be made to allow for early 944 bolt-on ball joints.When it's done I can literally change the arm to ball-joint plate and swap this to a late 944 car if I wanted.....


These are the Early 944 arm dimensions (pic from a late control arm taken for reference)

Post  968ls1 on Mon Jan 25, 2010 10:43 am

I just got a set of the High Strung Chromoly Arms and they are excellent! For the cost they are hard to beat and the fabrication is very high quality. I added two tabs to mount the factory 968MO30 brake deflectors like my factory arms to maintain my brake cooling.

RX7 arms

Post  xschop on Mon Jan 25, 2010 12:35 pm

I sent you a PM Zulu. I don't know about the message function of this forum. I see you are a new member here. Welcome aboard. The modded RX7 arms fix the broken alloy arm problem, the replaceable ball joints are back, Early or Late offset are 2 bolts away, 1" Xmember drop is also 2 bolts away, and the Caster setting is correct just like the factory. Every aftermarket arm I have seen has the balljoint pin positioned at or behind Crossmember lateral centerline, and the factory 944 arms position them forward that line which affects caster if they are not positioned same as factory....FYI

Xchop, are you making these available? I guess I will double check website, but I thought I didn't see it. My front BJ is lose, which can only mean one thing.

Yes, I have them available upon request only. 2 week turnaround as I have to order the arms and Polyurethane bushings and ball joints and machine the old rubber compression bushings off and make the 7mm X-member spacers tp go with the kit. Just PM me

Can't post a price here, but they are $125 less than the Chr-moly ones that are not adjustable and hard jointed.

You will also recieve a new set of sway bar adapters, you will have to thread your stock sway links down to the base with M10x1.5

I can't take this any more...
And I'm not the only one who sees it.

Replaceable ball joints have been available for the early 944 for a while...

xschop wrote:1" Xmember drop is also 2 bolts away,...
Bump-steer galore, unless you use XS part numbers 2 and 3 (Bump-Steer Kit and extended steering shaft).

Sounds like a cover-up, or a forced sale if you ask me.
No other arms require so many "extra" parts to function properly.

Razz ...You don't even realize what you just said. If the factory position was wrong, and the aftermarket versions re-align caster angles, what argument is left? Is caster adjustable with the modified RX7 arms? Dang, guess you don't need to change it after it's "perfect"...

I guess that's your only legitimate selling point...

Prove these arms with some real-world use and testing, and if I'm FOS, I'll admit it.
Don't take this as me trying to beat you down, I'm only asking for some verification. You couldn't do it on Pelican or Rennlist, so go ahead...

Prove me wrong.
I'll eat my hat.

Post away...

If you can't take a little criticism and prove yourself without such silly bullshit, then obviously I have a legitimate complaint.

So, your ratings are based on 1 member?
Maybe that will get you an electoral vote.

The popular vote is way off.

If a certain "smart***" would finish my wiring harness I sent him MONTHS ago, I would let that certain "smart***" take a ride and see for himself......

You need to wake up and realize who you are calling names. I didn't register that user-name, FYI. And I didn't say let's piss like women about this, but I can step-up with the best of them.
Wanna test me?

I don't have to listen to your name-calling BS, and no one else should have to either.
Wiring harness? You won't need it...

You're a step away, Dude.
Keep it up.
