^ I have another


Also anyone looking to run T3 knuckles with their NCRCA's (possibly others). I found that the knuckle slightly covers one of the holes for the NCRCA hardware.  You can slide the bolts into the RCA and then bolt it to the knuckle and be fine, but for me, that's not gonna fly.  For install, and any futur maintanence, I'll have to lift the strut up up over the hardware.  Not a huge biggie, but it bothers me enough that I'm going to notch the knuckles a bit so I can completely remove the hardware and take just the strut off.  The RCA is a much flatter surface, anyone who has ever battled a strut tube over the castle nut should appreciate this.  I'll take pics tonight and show what I mean.

This is what I'm talking about.





Threw the struts in.



Really hated putting the ugly dust shields on.  Half assed the hub, Since I'll need new rotors, pads, and lines before it's drivable. I'll do bearings and longer studs too, since it's apart.

Nice... this thing is getting sicker! I would have done the same thing for that knuckle. I still need to do most of the front suspension still on my car. Your car is a good example, I want everything you put on yours lol. Nrca, knucles, camber plates, tension rods, lca, ect...

Damn, shit's looking pretty serious.  It will be interesting to see if you can achieve full luck with the inner setting on those knuckles without binding.  I tried and the rod ends would hit the control arms.

This needs to be your designated track suit as soon as the car runs:
Why do noobs always call their hatch a hatchi but no one ever calls their coupe a couchi?

Got to love adjusable front fenders..

You should probably cut and weld the rear fenders like you have overs but you don't.. Like half the corollas that run at Adams.. Fuck what it looks like.

Tempting.   Next check I'll be ordering more vinyl to finish/replace parts.  I gotta finish flaring the right rear side and make some brackets to support the "Widebody" aka the stock GTS side pieces flared out to clear the tires..  Volvo lip shall come soon as well.

Not gonna spend too much on her during the summer tho.  Too hot.  I'll pay stuff off instead lol.

Ikea Lip installed.  (Swedish, and required assembly)  Yes with Zip Ties for now.  I need to run to ACE for hardware.



Please note.  Wheels are ~3.5" off the ground.  Lip is ~3.5" off ground. 

It's gonna need a street trim.  Where it gets mounted and the street does the trimmin'

Here is the test fit before modifying the lip to fit.  Car is on the ground.  Lip is ~1/8" higher lol
