1: the bushes should be the same but to be sure order xt130 ones
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?

went to u pull it today and got my self some XT130 LCA's, was too lazy to unbolt everything so got the steering arms and tie rod ends at the same time.
best $36 i ever spent.
someone should make a guide on fitting them with all different combinations lol and refurbishing the LCA's
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..
if anyone knows the length of mx83 lcas that would be awesome!!
GJ sigma LCA's and ae86 LCA's
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.
