You would have to do that through the option rear toe and to modify the rr hingepin holder. And inserts are needed to go as far as 3.3.

R2,

I could be wrong but i dont think the rear toe plate on from the buggy will work on the GT. I have tried to swap them over already but because of the small piece that has the two holes in it to bolt to the bottom of the diff housing. On the Buggy that plate is raised from the bottom of the rear toe plate. On the GT that plate is flush with the bottom. I think the only way to be able to do it would be to find the bottom of the rear toe block down

The only one that does not fit on correctly is the RF hingeholder , you need to grind off the side tabs to sit into the chassis the Toe Plate fits though without any grinding, I have the set on my car now with the grinding to the RF.

just a little update to those who have installed the front lower hinge pin mounts. the plastic tab to mount bumper, intended to slip in between the gearbox assembly and chassis is a little thick.
i notice that there is a slight difference in the recess hole between the 7075 alu mounts and the stock ones. i think some shaving is needed to the top of the plastic tab so that the hinge pin mount sits properly.

Ok guys I have made a mistake on the rear hingepin holders, I just want to make clear they can fit but not without modification, into looking at the front end on what Fishcake said I did not see a gap on my front, so the is no issue there, however the rear had a gap and as was mention before in a post that the rear toe plate might not fit correctly was right, there is a gap there on the rear as the plate sits lower that the chassis and brings it up.

Here's the mod to make it work, you need to grind down both hingepinholders, for the rear-front the two tabs on the outside, for the rear toe plate you need to grind down the insert tab to the gearbox and turn it upside-down, this in turn will level out you rear arms more, giving you less anti-squat which you really don't need in On-road, so this is good but the dremel needs to handy when putting them on.

I will go out to HCRP again this Sat and do some more running, my car is the new X3-e coming soon but this will also work on the NItro version to.
