Thanks. I'm not sure if any cut/ weld suspension components can be certed. Saying that, Gktech has a full bolt in knuckle. Not cut and shut. But there are certain guidelines about altering suspension geometry in the cert process, I'm sure. But for me, drift knuckle set up / angle mods is a track only mod.

Prep with red scotch then paint before reinstallation



I hope this all makes sense. And I hope you enjoyed this how to thread.

Also it helps to weld in plates on each side to fill in the big gap left from moving the rack forward helping to gain back any rigidity lost.

Here's underneath

With it all square and tacked up. Lay as nice a weld as you can on the top side and bottom side.

Now to fire up the old trusty mig. You can use whatever welding method you want. I only have access to a mig. Also don't forget to clean the paint off the welding area. Because that can infect and make your welds look disgusting.

1st half of the cutting process done. Next step is to remove the 25mm gap I've marked, sit together and trace and trim accordingly.

With the crossmember removed, I've marked it like so.



Now where ready to cut, remove and move the racks mounting points 25mm forward

One reason you may want to relocate your steer rack is to stop your tie rods over centering after installing shortened / modified knuckles

And I'm one of the ones who believe relocating the rack forward is a much safer option than using the offset  rack spacers.

Try this site. Type in your old wheel setup and your desired wheel setup and it should give you an idea of how the the new wheels will poke out.

Cars looking real aggressive man. Didn't realize that they have to run the pad wet now. Is it all good? I remember it rained on a pad day, and it felt like drifting on ice.

True. Thanks for the info mate. Looks like I'll stick to the stock wheels until I get a matching pair of tyres.

Well I'm definitely not thinking of running it in 50/50. Wow does it actually harm in in normal attessa mode? I was under the impression that the front wheels only kick in when the back breaks traction. Any downsides if you remove the 4wd fuse? I'm considering that.
