Fear of missing out + new jahb + NB2 + $90 buy-in = I want a set. PM sent.

I feel compelled to buy these, but not sure why.
I do have some fresh subframes to powder coat, and I like shiny things.
I dunno, do you want my money?

Yes, I do. And although I lack the imagination and time to act on it, I would enjoy the opportunity to male you my package.

The ID (at the face) of the outer race of the SIB-10T bearing is about ~.974", so a 1.25OD .12 wall steel tube will press the bearing into the sleeve without touching the ball.

FWIW I just installed QA1 bearings in mine. I'll keep track of how long they last compared to seans auroras.

Default Seal for rear spherical kit

I have finally got around to installing the kit. So today I went looking for the rubber seals. The bearing place couldn't help, and the closest of their suggestions was the foam and rubber stuff shop. After a couple of minutes, I found this:


Rubber seal - draft excluder!

It looks as though it will work, it is very soft. The fiscal impact was manageable, at $7 for a metre. As I am still waiting on the rest of the suspension bushes to arrive it will be a little while before I have the 'after' pictures and an update on fitment.

Hmm, so that is what is in the rest of the box ... and I thought it was just packing to stop the sleeves rattling around ... oops!

Well the upside is, I haven't thrown the box out.

Anyone want to buy a metre of weather stripping, one careful owner, never raced or rallyed?

This batch is sold out! I'm probably going to have some more made up to go with bushing kits, so let me know if you want one.
