ah that would be handy enough to make ....wouldnt be too time consuming either. would you want it annodised or would you spray it yourself?? i can draw it up in a day or 2, put a run time on it and let you know of a cost. them angles would be easy enough to get.

If you could mate, that would be awesome. Let me know how much work it will involve, and the cost :wink:

I just had a thought. How easy would it be to incorporate this sort of thing into the knuckle?

Image

It would save running an RCA spacer. So it would double up as a short steering knuckle and a 30mm spacer. I guess I dont have to say that the drawing provided is just for the right knuckle :lol: the left one is just the mirror image.

ah no prob at all. i see where your coming from and what i can do is leave that standup on it. its easier to machine it off later rather than try add it on !! :) so will i change the drawing to have that standup ????? :)

Yea, thats my thought exactly. Its better to have it as once solid piece rather than the ball joint, knuckle and then the spacers :lol: that would make for some pikey setup :lol:

It would be awesome if that can be added to the original design.

By the way, would the taper for the tie rod end be a problem?

rite did out a program last night ....well 5 programs, one for the first op and one for the second op on both sides. then have to programed a softjaw to hold them for the second op. so all in all i reckon i can purchase the material and manufacture these and supply at a cost of 100 euros or 85 pounds per set. so ill leave it with ye for thought :)
