they reposition the endlink so it will be vertical again. The spacer/standoff, fits between the mounts and the endlink itself is forward of that...to the outside.

McMaster-Carr has everything you need to pull that off. I switched from NA to NB sway bars and I was able to get everything from McMC

91287A372 -- Metric 18-8 Ss Hex Head Cap Screw, M10 Size, 65mm Length, 1.5 Mm Pitch,fully Threaded
93625A350 -- Metric 18-8 Ss Nylon-insert Hex Locknut, M10 Size, 1.5mm Pitch, 17mm Width, 10mm Height
93320A321 -- Chrome-plated Steel Unthreaded Spacer, 3/4" Od, 3/4" Length, .406" Id

I already had some misalignment spacers from my end links, so you may need to add those to your order. If you want, I have plenty of the bolts and nuts left over (the down side of McMC). I'd be more than happy to send a set or two your way. You will want to measure the distance between the two flanges to make sure the 3/4" long will fit.

nice job on the PS job! I'll certainly have to put this on the to-do list. I see a block-off plate in your future Scott

Big thanks for that info Andrew, I could reuse the link I have, but eying that bearing setup Emilio has look schweet! Got's me tempted...

No pics - just used the Mtuned reroute kit. Works great.

You have a manual rack? My wheel has never been upside down on track unless the back end has broken loose.

A lot of understeer happens when the front wheels are turned too much.

Less understeer happens when you stick your right foot in it.

Tell that to the 60trim lag and 3.6R&P with a 5spd! I feels like it take 3 secs before power comes on to help rotate car

It was just crazy how greasy the tires got, sawing at the wheel to try and get the front to catch was fun

You're really having to stay on top of things, mainly through 14a. Them compound turns'll getcha. 270hp is way too much to not have to slide through atleast some of the turns. Your little 1.6 is a freak. Way too much power out of a stock motor. I'm jelly.

you did a good job considering! Your highspeed cornering was ambitious considering the amount of understeer you had

225/45 continental slicks - well broken in by RSR Motorsports! I was suprised I made it as long as I did this session.
The day before, I had too much neg in my L rear camber that I corded 2 tires on the inside, on different sets of wheels. I took out about 1* (showed like -3.2* ? on my angle guage to start). So the video I posted was me dealing with 15x7 rims up front and 15x9 6ULs in the rear. I'll be the frist to admit, it was an effed up setup, but sure was fun.
