Even if this is done, only one screw will line up properly and the forward mount screw will be 1.47mm out of place. I guess you could try running with just one screw holding the mount in place, or force the forward screw in, but then you'll have a bowed chassis. Also without drilling additional holes, you'll loose the ability to add extra screws for flex settings.

If you managed to just screw this on without modifying, I'd like to see it, as I just don't see it being a straight swap.

That's NOT a good news!!! LOL

Anyone swap out the ball cups with any other companies? around here VBC does not exist.. I hoping associated will work, since I have used 5mm ballstuds.
