The front shock tower is slightly lower so when the car is at ride height it means the piston is in the middle of the shocks, allowing the shock to move either way. This should make the car alot better over bumps and have a smoother transition (weight transfer) when going through corners.

Yeah it seems like there's a dodgy batch about at the moment, one of mine just sheared in half at the tiniest knock. If it splits down the mould line you could probably try and glue it, other than that the 1* offset hubs seem to be stronger as they have been around a while due to them not being as popular.
These SDW shock towers sounds good, John has CML got them or is it an import job?

I had three pairs of that weak batch of the 0degree carriers. I broke (shattered) four of them. They split across the whole part, not just the arm part or the molded seam. I'm willing to bet that the mold had too much air in it when the parts were formed. I did end up switched to the 1degree hubs, and didn't break anymore.

Were you using the Graphite or Plastic carriers that broke?

What about boiling the 0 degree carriers, maybe that could help.
That is what I used to do with former MR4TC arms.

Anyway, I will try very soon and let you know

I just had a breaking spree of these to, I broke one that had good reason to break, hard hit. I then put on my replacement and proceeded to break three more over a two week period. They split right down the seam it looks like, not much of a hit and they are broke in half. It seemed to be just those few I had got recently, went back in my stash and found some, no problem with them.

Default centre one-way hassles

Hey

Has anyone had issues with their centre one way??
Mine has just decided that it will no longer grab and my car is now 2wd,.

Does this have something to do with the layshaft wearing or is it likely a fault in the oneway itself?????

Hope you all can help

Yes the stock center shaft wears out pretty quick. Repalce it with the hollow center shaft and you will not have this problem.
