Can you fill us in on your current setup? Sushi Boy gave a lot of suggestions but it is easier to help you when we know your current setup.

Duraluminum. Actually I am not sure. I would have to check with Holland on the actual "grade".

I am not talking about the steering hubs but the steering itself. The UK version of the RDX comes with a cheapo plastic one that has loads of play and bends like chewing gum.

When he say's uk kit he means the one we get in the uk, the price for the RDX would be way above the other kits so some of the parts have been taken out of the box or replaced to reduce the cost. ie we get plastic steering and no roll bars.

Well, all UK edition kits sold in the US come with Duraluminum steering bellcranks. They put plastic ones in the kits sold in the UK to drop the cost of the kit. You can purchase the duraluminum bellcranks seperately.

CUSTOMWORKS......im glad you got your RDX all hooked up!! i still have my second car. and it still is running great. a while ago you were interested in my first kit i had for sale... glad things are going well with your RDX!! keep it up, it only gets better!!! i tried a standard rear low roll center in the car with ultra lows in the front... that actually frees up the car more in the rear.. i almost always run it that way nowadays.

Sure, I repeated it a bit. So go out and BUY the duraluminum bellcranks. I was pointing out the fact the car in the US do not come with the plastic bellcranks. Even though we sell the "UK" edition, it is not the same.

Bahaha what would I do with an aluminium bellcrank for a corally in my MSX ? If you read one page ago, I was merely advising Mi2 Dude who was asking how to get rid of understeer, to buy one and try the car after that

Don't you have somewhere to be? I'm the only one allowed to troll in this thread.

I had today off. They should be online by part number search but we must not have checked the box for online shopping. I'll take care of it tomorrow.
