Would any one be able to confirm if these fit under 16" Enkei RP01's?

Thanks [thumleft]

I think the best way is for me to physically put the wheels on and measure the clearance. I Hope they do, really don't want to have to fit 17" wheels.

So worth reiterating here that this wont fit under standard 15' wheels then!

Which 16's do you have Bob? happen to have any pics of the clearance?

I also have the rev1 caster adjustable set up at the front. Just looking for a guru to confirm that this kit work with that?

also re the rear hubs - is this saying that the existing bearings in the hubs are replaced or do they remain?

cheers [thumleft]

15" wheels might fit in the front, but absolutely no way in the rear. Depending on the wheels, 16's in the rear are likely to have clearance of a couple mm at most.

Works equally well with either style front suspension.

The spherical tie rod bearing in the rear knuckle is removed and a solid steel slug pressed into it's place. The bracket then clamps on over that, and the new rear tie rod uses rod ends on both ends.

Thanks, sorry for being simple but does this means the bearing that comes with the kit will have to stay in the hub? I only ask as I may want to transfer the kit to another car in the future and would rather not transfer the hubs also. (alternative answer is spare bearings? do you sell these separately?)

No problem, it can be removed as easily as it is pressed in and transferred to another car.

Just to be clear, the piece that presses into the knuckle isn't really a bearing, it's just a machined piece of solid steel. And if you were going to remove the kit and put a car back to stock it would need to be removed anyway so the original bearing could be pressed back into that location for the stock tie rod to pivot on.

Also, I do try to keep spares of everything on hand in case anyone needs something.

After talking to my machinist, it looks like I will be doing a little bit bigger production run on these than I had planned. So to prevent me being stuck with too much inventory I am going to open this back up at the group buy price for a few more weeks (until production is done).

Not much longer now! Should be about a week to go, just waiting on plating, powder coating, and anodizing. In case anyone was waiting till the last minute to get in at the group buy price, now's your chance.

In case anyone on your side of the pond is thinking they missed out, I have these kits in stock and ready to ship at this point.

Also, my Strut Mounts are also in stock. Sorry, I'm not allowed to post a link, but they are easy to find in the group buy section of either mr2.com or mr2oc.com
