  1. Roll bar connected at strut are not creating upward stress to balljoint. It only reduce downward force. It`s not lifting wheel of the road isn`t it?
  2. Parts source isn´t the issue here, i think. You can use any car parts here, if they fit. I´ve noticed that here in Finland car guys are more creative and everything don´t have to be bolt-on.😜 I wouldn´t stress about forces to the ball joint or things like that. Especially if you use ligther sway bar. Attaching pickup point to the strut would cause much more stiffer sway bar. It´s all about suspension arm motion ratio. Same effect for the springs here-> https://www.hypercoils.com/spring-rate-calculator/
  3. If it's genuine OMP, i don't think so. There are big differences between aluminium and aluminium. I had Biltema rally wheel in 90' and current Nardi is bit stiffer...
  4. There is not so much forces that will bend control arm. Most of the vertical forces are directing to the strut. Control arms get involved mainly lateral forces. So i think those arms are just fine. Btw. is this same car that is some vids from kalajoki @youtube many years ago?
  5. Are those square frame tubes same width than originally? If so, i bet you have wider inner lca pick-up points than originally. Are you done that frame by yourself? Why fabricate tube frame and maintain original geometry? I would add caster atleast because you can with than kind of modding.
  6. Longer brake line makes chance that you have air in line, more bigger. Line lenght and shapes do not affect brake pressure, that for sure. Corner weights can also affect, even rear corners. Weight moves to front when braking...
  7. Thanks for comments. Do you mean S13 control arms/TC rods. I can't see why they won't work, of course it is possible they need some modifications but nothing major. Of course left side arms goes to right, with S13 spindle and wise versa. Also because longer arms, there will be enormous KPI angle which affects camber behaviour when turning wheel. Thats why i modified shock upper mount in my car. Btw, those ultimate bolt-on set doesn't ring my bells...
  8. Looks fancy, but I wouldn´t hold my breath with benefit´s. Silly bolt on system, imo.
  9. Don´t know about 500horses but here is something that i´v done.
  10. Yep, it was whole afternoon trial and error fun. Just cut loose steering arm and tacked it in various angles. Then measured wheel turning angle vs. steering rack movement. Both ways ofc. When found best possible spot just weld couple of tacks more and moved to welding table. Then i was welded couple of bolts to table and attach spindle with them. Welding itself was pretty easy with tig. Just noticed that i don´t have any pics about this whole job...😲
  11. Yes they are custom and lca's are bit longer than originals. You can find more on my build topic.
  12. So I finally got my exhaust manifold into shape. There will be lots of welding ahead, but it´s an easy part. I have to see, if I can shorten that collector a bit.
  13. With S13 spindles (and others, i believe) and longer LCA:s is possible to achieve near zero scrub. At least not so wide wheels. I´v got 8" rim and scrub max. 10mm. You should keep about 50% ratio between caster and KPI. My car has 13-14 degrees KPI and ~7 dergees caster. Shock upper mount is moved outwards aswell...
  14. I did mine out of hockey puck. Quite cost effective.
