    Default Xt130 struts, KE70 Lcas - possible?

    Well, may be a dumb question, but, if I have Corona struts, steering arms and Lcas fitted in my car at the moment, can I change back to a standard KE70 lca to loose some front track? Have some wheels to fit and as it stands I don't think I'll be able to fit them under the guards with just flaring the guard. The rims are a 15x7 -2 with 195/50s on them but I am doubtful that they will fit with the current front setup. Thinking, go the standard length lcas, and just get some camber tops to help tuck under along with flaring.

    Also, just out of curiosity, how much extra width can be had from flaring a front KE70 guard? Let me know if you think it will be possible to fit


    Edit:

    Full front setup is:

    -Xt130 struts, steering arms, LCAS, hubs and brake setup.

    Went searching through the wheel fitment thread and can see people with 15x7.5 -8 rims with rona LCAS but with ae86 struts fitting fine. So does anyone know what in my current setup is causing the rims to sit so far out? I'm starting to wonder how a rim that sits out 12mm further than mine fits so easily under the mentioned above setup. This one:

    you can fit them with just flaring.
    iv got 14x7 -10 in my t18 and they fit no problem after a dodgy flare job

    be a man! also your tyre is on backwards.

    easy fit in the gaurds with touch more camber and lipped guards, wouldnt need a flare (depends on camber)

    Haha was waiting for someone to say Man up! And yeah, that wheel was only for fitting purpose, I have the other side around somewhere. Might just have to give it a go on some old guards I guess. If people think it is possible, then I'll have faith. Just my first impression was that it seemed to be sitting out a shite load. Compared to the photo I posted above (and wheel specs), it is hanging out maxi-as. The one above easily sit under stock guards(lipped?) where as mine is out well and truly. Does the corona hub setup compared to the AE86 one differ alot? Seems that they are the only difference to the above setup, and may be what is causing the large outset?

    they need a fair amount of flaring if you dont want to run massive neg but its doable, mine fits (assuming we are both talking about a KE70) and i ran 205/50/15's on 15x7 0's

    In answer to your original question tho, yes you can run KE70 LCA's and corona steering arms and struts, done that aswell

    Ah excellent! That's what I wanted to hear sr rolla.

    I have the original ke70 lcas under the house somewhere, so that will save me 10mm worth of flaring. With a light flare/roll and some more neg camber, I guess it'll be okay. Just didn't expect them to sit SO far outside the guards. Had about 5-8mm pictured in my head from other fitment photos, but I guess I was way out.

    also, at a quick glance at my XT130 struts in shed, the actual hub the wheel bolts too seems to be offsetted a fair bit compared to the KE70 ones. maybe that would explain alot of your track?

    But yeah, just flare and roll, bit of camber. all will be sweet!!!

    Yeah that was what I figured would be the case, but wasn't sure if anyone had already discovered this before. I will have all of the fitment issues sorted soon enough, just a little unexpected how they were at first.

    Probably would help to read the original post before posting.
