Horizon is showing arms in stock.

Is there a rubber/carpet setup floating around out there that we can try while waiting on the one-way to be released?

Anybody had a problem with the steering rack bushings being too short? When I tighten up the screws that pass thru the bellcranks and thru the bushings into the steering rack it binds all movement of the steering. Help!

You may have gotten too much lock tight on the threads and now the bushings are ina bind. Its hard to see it once it dries but I have goofed up a couple of CVD's in the same manner before. Take the bushing out and scratch around the inside and outside of it with your X-Acto and see if some stuff flakes off of it.!

Hey Pook! The bushings will still fall out of the bellcranks. Not the thread lock problem. I think I'll just sand the bottom of the bellcranks where it meets the rack to give me the clearance I need. Thanks for the reply anyway.

aca, i must've got the extra material from your standoff's on mine. mine are a hair too long and there's a bit of up and down play. i might just skim them down with a file next time i play with the car.

Allen--Are you sure you have the steering rack on the correct side? Check that as well. Good luck man!

Pook, I'm building just like it is in the book, but I realized all I have to do is trim the bottom of the bellcranks so the tube part of the bushing comes a little farther up into the bellcranks, so the screw won't bottom out in the bellcrank first, but contacts the bushing first. Too late to fool with it anymore tonight, going to bed.

I had the same problem figuring out setting the droop and solution of lifting the car up till the wheels come off the ground and trying to measure 2mm is not too exact in my opinion. I think this might work better but I am new to foam so here it goes.

Setting the drop to 2mm above ride hight.
1. Set your ride hight, lets say 4mm.
2. Measure from the ground to the top of you axles with the tires still on. Lets say this is 26mm.
3. Remove tires and let the car sit flat on the chassis.
4. Adjust the drop screws till the top of the axles are 20mm from the ground.

Here is my math: 26mm-4mm-2mm=20mm
What I am trying to do with this method is find out how high my axles are with the tire I am using (26mm), then taking away the ride from this number(4mm). This gives me the distance from the bottom of the chassis to the top of the axles(22mm) at ride hight. Now to figure out how much the axles will droop I just subtract the amount of droop desired(2mm) from axle hight number(22mm) to get the distance from the ground to the top of the axles with car sitting on its chassis(20mm).

this is how i do it...seems easiest imo...

set ride hight.....lets say 5mm, then grab your ride hight gauge (should be sitting at 5mm) hold your tires and lift up on the shock tower, then slide the ride hight gauge under again...if its at 6mm then you have 1mm of uptravel....

only way i can get it right...
