If you own one of these vehicles, you would know the OEM steering angle on the Skylines sucks! We measured them to having around 38 degrees lead wheel and even less trailing.
This kit will allow you to get around 60 degrees of lock lead wheel and with adjustable ackerman you can acheive near parallel front steering. We strongly recommend our bolt on rack spacer to make the most of the kit but they are an optional item as some people may already have a rack spacer. More information on this can be seen in the FAQ below. Circa 60 degrees of steering lock.NOTE: will ONLY fit RWD knuckles. It will not fit GT-R's or GTS4 front knuckles. NOTE: You will need to modify your dustshield and remove your OEM lockstop.
Does installing this kit require a wheel alignment? Yes, it alters both toe so a wheel alignment will be required after installation.
Will this fit my car? We can only confirm fitment for the vehicles listed above under "vehicle compatibility".If your car is not listed there, then we don't know if it will fit. Is there anything else needed for installation? There is not, however, in terms of the kit itself it will arrive as shown in the product photo. Can I install this myself?
If so how long will installation take? Yes, provided you have general mechanical knowledge as they are relitively straightforward. Installation time should be around 30 minutes. However, being a suspension component we recommend only a trained professional to install this product. Do I need bolt on rack spacers?It is not completely neccessary, if you are chasing lock, then we do recommend the bolt on rack spacers this will allow for more travel of the rack, which results in more steering lock. If you are not chasing steering lock and just want to have faster steering, then the bolt on rack spacers are not a requirement. Should I get offset rack spacers or bolt on rack spacers? This boils down to your setup, if you have low offset wheels and adjustable arms already and feel as if, if you had more lock the steering may over center, then we recommend the offset rack spacers, as they still provide adequate rack travel while also mitigating over-centering. If your setup is fairly standard and you just want to obtain more steering lock, then I would just recommend the bolt on rack spacers, which to date is adequate.
I already have inner tie rod ends that have rack spacers built in, should I get your bolt on rack spacers? The aim of the game is to unlock the full potential of the steering rack through rack spacers.
If you inner tie rod ends already have them built in, thats fine and they still can be used, but we do recommend checking if that is a limiting factor (assuming they are shorter then the ones we recommend) if they are then we suggest the bolt on rack spacers, because who doesn't like more lock right?
