Well I should imagine the steering components are laid out horizontally so that bumps have minimal effect. When the vehicle is lowered the LCA are tilted upward and when further moved upward by a bump will effectively shorten or pull the tie rod ends inward toeing out the tire or tires. Would I be right in thinking that restoring the LCAs to their original positions is the point of the spacers?

In Topic: Square intake port vs. round intake port: when did it change?

Z24 heads only have square intakes. A Z24 head can be identified by the fuel pump opening not being machined out. Just like the top head in my picture.


It's possible that someone may have swapped a Z22 head on but if a Z24 head it will have square intake ports and should have a square intake to match.

So it's try something and hope it works? Rather then guessing is there some rules for how much to add? Just get the LCA horizontal?

In Topic: What are re-bore limits?

Yesterday, 07:41 PM

For L and Z series you can safely go 1mm, and 2mm is likely, while 3mm is doable but.... Keep in mind that a 1mm increase in bore is only 0.5mm of material removed all the way around. 4mm would be a 2mm shave, about 0.80"

Cut 10 more blanks today. Will shape them and mark for drilling this week after work.
