    i'm sure most of this has been covered through the thread but not in an entirely direct manner.

    i will be using Power Steering arms, lock spacer and XT130 LCA's on an AE86 Strut.

    heres my questions, inb4 flaming for noobness or not reading thread properly rabble rabble.

    1. i know i need to cut off the lock stops but when i rebush/joint the LCA do i use Xt130 ones or AE86 ones?

    2. will it be necessary to run different rack ends or tie rod tubes/ends?

    3. if so do i just want the tie rod ends or tie rod ends + tubes?

    4. will any of this change when i coil over the strut with Camber Tops and RCA's?

    Trial and error works! lol

    refurbishing them is as easy a getting the grinder out and a black pressure pac!!

    Chop off lock stoppers,clean and paint! of course you could go all out and powder coat em?
    Bushes and ball joints need to be pressed in at a shop that can do so..

    GJ sigma LCA's and ae86 LCA's

    edit*
    Q: anybody know the length of GJ sigma LCA's? or are they the same as GE sigma LCA's?

    A: measured the GJ sigma LCA's and they're about 340mm-350mm. To fit these i have had to get the balljoints machined to fit the powersteering arms and have had to get ae86 bushes(60mm) replacing the 65/66mm GJ sigma bushes

    hmmm, running these would probly give about 5 degree neg camber with no cambertops... and probly 3 degree negative!? as the minimum with cambertops.

    will post what i end up with.

    anybody ran GJ sigma arms before? pro's? cons? opinions?

    also, anybody know, if i use johnny's extra lock tie rod ends with stock ae86 rack ends, will there be enough adjustment to get them to reach or will i have to upgrade to something? not too sure about rack ends so somebody let me know.

    i sense geometry failure with sigma arms + some.

    don't be cheap and use camber tops (+xt130 arms) is a winner.
