    techno toy tuning make a kit.

    but my gut tells me that if you need to ask for a tutorial on how to do it, you probably shouldnt do it. LCA's are kind of important on a car...

    hmm well in that case, I would look on the T3 website and pretty much copy their design if you dont want to buy the kit.

    I was looking at doing the same thing, but concluded that for the amount of effort and time it will take, it will end up cheaper to buy the T3 kit.

    Maybe even look at making a whole new arm and replacing the ball joint with another rose joint? Anyone have opinions on this?

    Thought I would add that MX32 LCA's come in at 335mm.

    so its most definately not a bolt in job.
    old thread dig up but help a brother out.

    the quote is reffering to sigma lca's. what exactly needs machining? slightly confused after reading th entire thread at 10.30pm after multiple beers...

    thought i'd add.. people asking about mx83/gx8#/jzx8# lca's .. they have a larger bolt through the pivot bush. (other end to the ball joint).

    and could the OP please update the first post so the list is corrected?!!

    re ball joints.
    A6 celica/carina *4cyl* have same ball joint thread and taper as ke3/e7/tt132/ae86.
    ma6/ga6 celica-supra 6cyl have a larger taper but with same 14mm thread. mx8#/jzx8# etc have a larger taper ball joint than the ma61.

    compared these moons ago.
