    Offset is +24. Mine is a stock k member and fox length control arms with 94/95 spindles.

    I did rub at full lock, but I added a 3/8 spacer.

    Been awhile since my last update, so here we go.

    Got the upper control arm bracket measured out and made, tried to get anywhere from 0 to 15* of adjustment.




    Ordered new fuel tank (old one was rusted and leaking) and weight jackers for the rear.




    Got the brackets and weight jackers welded up and in the car!








    Luckily, the weight jackers are accessible and hidden.


    Got everything assembled and back into the car...(I know, I should have painted the rear while it was out)




    Couple issues I did run into;

    - Panhard bar hit the roll bar (thought it was good, but nope). No problem though, I just moved the roll bar forward an inch.

    - The upper link clamp rotated on a test drive, I ended up welding the bottom half of the clamp to the rear.


    After I fixed all that, I got the car out and ran an autocross



    Car felt much better. Need to play around with some adjustments and see what the car likes.

    Overall, I'm happy at the moment. Finally getting the car out and beating on it was a blast.

    Got some new wheels! 18x10.5 on all corners.

    The fronts were rubbing at full lock and with a spacer (can't remember the spacer thickness off the top of my head) and I didn't have enough wheel stud to feel safe.
    So longer wheel studs are in the future.

    Put the old wheels back on and hit the local autocross and I was able to get a shot of the rear suspension during one of my runs. Check it out!

    watched the video, really cool to see the system work. I was wondering why you kept the dogbone on the front of the diff. Usually everybody pulls it off as one of those "free" first mods.

    Its got a small vibration somewhere in the driveline and when I had it off it made it worse. The U-joints are fine, so I'll be pulling the driveshaft to check and see if it's out of balance.

    I had this issue before the change, but just slip my mind when I had the car apart.
