I remember I had to stack 3 or 4 washer on lug studs on my 240sx to clear, but I only had so many. Only 3 of 5 studs had 'shims' on each front wheel. Tighten the other 2 until it felt good. Rode that for probly 2 years. I hit a speed bump at normal speed and thats what broke studs. Of all the other shit that happened in that car, the straw broke the camels back.

Im sure you can find legit spacers with alot more surface area at 5mm thickness or something like that. ONE washer I think will be ok.

When I put the bc’s on I could feel the bumpsteer, the car feels really responsive now with everything the rck hitting was a bitch but considering the it was just one side I figured it’s something else that bent or not right, the camber bolts helped too so I’m not disappointed with the stuff joe recommended the front end feels really good now

Cool but still leads to the question of what is off?

That front end kit was one of my fav upgrades. Def changes the steering/suspension

maybe over the course of the winter I'll try and check out more stuff I don't want to drive it anymore during the winter the rust is really bad, one of the things joe asked me to check was the wheel bearing, i didn't feel any play in it i did noticed that the when i was adjusting the camber bolts after install i could the see the spindle move but it wouldn't really move straight up and down it would more in a diagonal not sure if that could be it don't remember if the passenger side did the same

That diagonal could be the very cause, get a new bearing and race set and if you are feeling foggy do both sides.... wonder if there are ceramic bearings for us...

the rck ball joints with brembo brakes doesnt work well unless the rck is cut down a bit to make room for the brembos. check 2jr site, they give option of trimming them to fit brembos. washers can help tho

Decided to tag a long on this post.


I have the 2j Lower Control arms with the super pro bushings, and honestly put maybe 4k miles on them in 9 years.

I sold my rck cause I haven't been driving the bisch, but I'ma get her ass running and am looking at purchasing another set.

Question is, should the LCA's be fine, I am capable of adjusting them myself to fit, especially with the shim kit (Switched over to Brembos from my 8 pot Ksport BBK)

Or would I benefit from just buying them already pressed in from 2j.

I really don't want to spend twice, but I really don't know the life on the Super Pro bushings, or if there is anything I should look out for.

Opinions are welcome.

Thanks in advance!

-Tony

I would buy just the bushings only if you are able to install yourself. I got them premade and I remember it being pretty expensive. I got a small tub of grease for poly bushings. I need to regrease them if possible because they squeak when cold. As far as life, think theyre good for a long while. Had mine for probly 40k miles and a few years. Still tight.

Shim kit on the rotors or the lca?
