That would have been nice to know before hand funny how information come out when you start talkin' about using RDX parts.

for the roll bar, you may want to try some shrink wrap either side of the mounts, on the outside, will stop the bar sliding left and right

More info on the '05 front end conversion. You can use the FK05 front c-hubs (6d, woohoo!), steering blocks and camber links (replace the inner ends with the quick roll center ends and mount them in the upper inner position). You also have to use 1.7mm shims on the hinge pins behind the c-hubs. This helps to keep the wheels from rubbing the front shocks. The front roll center will be raised due to the hub moving forward/upward, the subsequent ride height change & lower arm angle, and the steeper angle of the upper links. But with 6d c-hubs and front kickup the car steers great without a hint of oversteer.

Has nothing to do with RDX parts...as a matter of fact I ran an RDX sway bar in mine. It didn't work for me. Bar was to thin and seemed to do nothng to the front end. I ran a 1.5mm Xray bar.

Funny how you love to make this a manufactuerer's battle....Geez...

I have a problem with my T2. Any help would be great. I have a box stock car, setup like the manuel says and my rear toe is way off. I have to take out .054" to get the toe same side to side. My left rear had way less than the right rear. It looks like the outboard hub has a 2 degree on the right, although it says 1. Anyone have any solutions for this or is my car an odd one out? Thanks

everyone has the same problem, read back a few posts people are explaining what they are doing, all i did was use different size shims to reach the required toe. i'm sure xray will have a solution soon, just give them time

This is a known issue. Please be patient for a official statement from Xray. Look here.
And for the time being use shims to get rid of it.

I just ordered like 20 packages of parts for my car (not a T2) and I thought of all you XRay guys with your super-glued arms and shock towers. I could almost see your sad little faces as they told me all my stuff would be shipped this afternoon. Hope your spare parts come soon.

Thanks guys. I fixed it with shims. Had to take out .054" out of the right side.

I know there was some talk (FK05) of testing inboard toe vs outboard toe. If you are shimming one arm differently to get an equal amount of toe, you now have inboard toe on one side and outboard toe on the other. Is anyone seeing any inconsistency in handling from this?
