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

    what if i were to use the mx62 knuckle, brakes, strut etc aswell? since the spindle may actually be at a different angle.
    i am buying an rt142 and for a brake/track/camber upgrade im considering using mx83 or mx62 front end stuff (converted to coil-overs). i have a feeling that perhaps an mx62 strut/spindle on say a 300mm long LCA will lead to positive camber.

    what do you think?

    damn that actually looks perfect... have you got a RCA in there? how much camber is that? camber tops?

    what strut/spindle/hub/brake, steering knuckle, tierod, castor arm etc did you use?

    any more pics from underneath?

    cheers

    ill revive the thread!

    has anyone fitted mx83 control arms? im running the GJ sigma arms at the moment and they bit too long (longer than the GE ones, being 340mm i believe). someone selling mx83 arms and they measure at 330mm. Wasnt sure if they balljoint suits ae86 steering arms along with castor rod holes and swaybar pins.

    Wanted to ask whether longer caster/ tension rods are needed when fitting xt130 lca's, or any longer lca's for that matter?? Or is there enough play in the stock rods to fit in the existing holes?

    mad thread. i got 86 struts, ps arms,rt132 lca. bought lcas not knowing if it was right but feel a lot better now. the xt130 and rt132 were the same bodies so i took a punt. ive never heard anyone use a different model name except xt130 so thought it had to be them and them only. theres no xt130s in the wreckers but heaps of the other model. from a streeters pont of view, fuck sigma looks excessive. car looks mad yes but i dont think -5 camber is gunna benefit the car at all. tyre wear would be rediculous. probably mad on a race car though. is anyone out there running sigma on the street?
