Could someone post the actual measurements of the Lunsford Ti turnbuckles used in the following locations for the RDX? I am having a problem getting the rear camber links short enough to get -2* camber. I bought the car used and it had a mix of Lunsford turnbuckles and Corally aluminum turnbuckles.

Also those using the Lunsford turnbuckles with the RPM ball cups, have you had to cut down any of the ball cups to make them work?

Front Camber Turnbuckles
Front "Tie Rod" Turnbuckles
Center steering link Turnbuckle
Servo to bellcrank turnbuckle
rear camber turnbuckles

I asked the same thing a couple times about 4 months ago and could never get an answer.

Let's see,

The equivalent versions are:

28mm = 1 1/8"
33mm = 1 1/4"
21mm = 1" (Fits well if you use the inner mounting points on the bell cranks)

These are +/- 1 to 1.5mm from the actual size, of all except the 21mm, which is about 5mm longer than the original. Hope this helps guys.

I have an extra used 4mm chassis that came with with a car I bought a few months ago that I'd probably let go for $60 shipped U.S. It's been sealed, and seems to be in pretty okay shape. Not doing me much good just sitting in the box.

You think the team will be running the new car at Vegas? On one hand, if so, I'll be happy to hear about how it compares. On the other hand, it means we probably won't see many updated carpet setups for the current RDX, especially with all the new parts available for it.

How in the world do you guys get the circlip into the diff half? I have automotice snap ring pliers but they are too big. Is there a really good way? I have tried body clip ends but can't get it to work. Its getting frustrating. Is that jsut one of things that you have to work at forever and HOPE it goes in?

The small Craftsmen snap ring pliers from Sears work for the circlips. The circlips are annoying. I wish there were another way.

I find that curved body scissors work in a pinch. No pun intended.

really? I can't see how. No offecnse, I must just have a different pair. Mine have a blunt tip. I'll have to go check out the small craftsman pliers.

I took a Dremel to my snap-ring pliers and ground down the tips to a point so they were small enough to fit inside the holes.

So, here's how I do it:

I put the ring on the pliers and only squeeze enough to keep it from falling off. Then, I put it flat on the diff half, press down in it with my thumb, and only squeeze the pliers enough to push it into the hole. I don't push very hard, otherwise it'll go past the notch and it's a bitch to get back out. I just get it in there, and then slowly push it down with a flathead until settles into the notch evenly.

If you try to squeeze it, inevitable it's going to shoot off of there and disappear into the dog's water bowl, or somewhere equally exciting to go fishing for it.
