On the wise fab kit you can't run a sway bar.

blehhhh lil teaser update... There's no hub on the test struts.... so wheel was just held up accordingly.

ALSO.... im not looking for "MORE" angle.... im really after ackerman correction, like what a dirt track or sport atv quad has at full lock. You will be able to see more angle at turn in (trailering tire) and that is what I have been after.

I did order my metal today though.

Currently sitting on the stock e46 joints, as I am still waiting on the others.


On a side note, that will disappoint yoshi.... I have eliminated tapers..... Everything will be 5/8'' high grade bolts. NO TAPERS


Reasoning being.... cost.... The cost of machining OUR**** tapers is gonna be rediculous... Ive been digging through taper cutter (for the machine shop) and.... haven't found any.... and Im kinda glad, at about 350$ a cutter................... which what happens when one breaks, or wears out? the cost of a kit would go up significantly due to these cutters-

but as of right now, I should be able to make these kits extremely DIY easy and cheap. IF I end up selling these, It'll be just the block, the strut mounts, and the press in bearing sleeve for the e46 arms. I will then provide everyone will the part numbers to the high misalignment bearings, and tie rods...... SO, that IF you NEED to replace one.... you can do it on your own, without having to wait or get a hold of me. To me this is the beauty behind it.... all joints will be able to be replaced BY YOU, ordering them on YOUR OWN. (I of course, can send you them as well.... but there is no need)

I'll have about 500$ in this kit by the time I test it. However, once everything test out fine this summer, I will be able to cut that price down by about 200$ I hope :D

it's supposed to be like an inch longer on each control arm than the E46 one. I think the E46 one is 1 inch longer than stock. So... 2 inches? IE 50mm

their site says ~100mm per side, but I need exactly measure... e46 are cca 35mm longer....SLR kit is 57mm longer, and wisefab is longer than SLR

new adapters on 3 holes for e36

I don't think any of us have the wisefab kit so we can't say for sure. Will those adapters work on E30s???

e30 must have adapters on 4 holes, we have made them too, but we didn't made a "teeth" on surface because e30 knuckle has diferent heights of screws for CA and tie rod
