Yeah, the front camber could use some adjustment. I'll be getting s14 arms shortly for more adjustment. we also made new heartbreaker stickers for the hellaflush meet and some hellagay! stickers, haha

put the mk1 cornerlights and grille back in, I got tired of always having the lights up since it looked horrible down. still looking for s13/s14 front lca's to camber the front more and considering the possibility of multilink rear swap

S13 front LCA's are finally here and in. Seriously took me forever, I figured "Hey, I've done this before. I'll just use my bench vise instead of the C-style ball joint press that I used a ton during my build." Wrong. Then had to wait til the day to go rent one. Thanks JOE for the arms again(and painting them this cool, interesting color, haha), guy is a saint. He even gave me my cool unequal length header for the ka when my s12 was still in pieces.

Looks like the the sway bar barely lines up, I may have to just get an s13 one somewhere. And I'll definitely need new tension rods, s12 ones aren't even close. It's about time for adjustable ones anyway.

Yuta's 14's amongst my 15's. We threw them all together for this photo thing that you may see later. You can see my blast pipes in the corner too, since I'm still lazily and slowly building a new 2.5in CAspec exhaust. I've pretty much only made the new down pipe so far.

Can I ask you a newb S12 owner wheel fitment question? I bought the Canuck springs (otherwise stock '86 suspension), and I have a set of 15x8 +4 wheels. Do you think with 195/55-15's I'll be sticking out too far in the front? Like you, the only thing I really care about is not having the tread out past the fender.

Am I going to need a fender pull and/or camber plates in the front?

This guy is claiming his 15x8 +15 fit with mostly stock stuff:

Image

And this guy says he has his 15x8 zero offset (with 195/50 tires) fitting on mostly stock suspension:

Image



Your thoughts?

And sorry for the mild threadjack. :P

Hmm, I remember way way way back when, I tried a friend's 15x8+0 on my car with 205/50 and the fronts on stock suspension were poking out a little.

I'm pretty sure 15x8+4 and 195/50 should fit in the front with a roll.

You were right. 8)

These are 195/60's, though. I wanted the stock diameter so the speedo is correct, but after seeing it I think I need to go down to 195/55 at least.

Just popped these pbm rack spacers in. Had them laying around for a year or two but now's the time since with the s13 lca, my tie rods barely have enough threads. Win win! Also currently waiting for some SPL tension rods too, a week or two more since they were out of stock.

pics were taken with my old canon sd550 point and shoot, always surprisingly impressive!

This is one of the most useful mods ever. I'd be wary about removing that claw washer too, but many rebuilt steering racks don't come with them either, so... it's all good, right? :)
