Are you talking about linking the arms together and having a faux rack?
Ahhh, Like and adjustable lateral rod of sorts. Like on a Solid Rear axle car!
hmmm... but I think it would still have to be two independent bars. Somthing like that would essentially be a second sway bar mounted further up.
/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif I do like your thinking though!
I did originally think of using two spherical ball joints with a threaded rod. But once I realized how short it would be versus the cost of 4 joints, 2 bars, and all the boots, I figured the cost would be around 100-150 for quality parts. Plus you still need a bracket fabbed up. That's when I started looking at sway bar links. I work as a tech and see different makes and models daily so I knew it was only a matter of time til I found a decent looking one.
I have installed the 3sx kit on my car and for the price, I think the custom plugs for the front rack alone make it worth it, relative to the price of the arms etc. It gets the job done in one fell swoop. Front rack doesn't leak.
^^ so the 3SX kit is a bolt in option for GVR4? That seems too good to be true...
Indeed, it is. My installed pics kinda suck since it was dark, but it definitely bolts up perfectly.
One thing to note is, you need a VR4 rear subframe with the 4WS provisions for this to work. If you swapped in a DSM rear subframe, then the holes the rear steering rack bolt to will not be there, which will leave you with no place to bolt on the inner part of the 3SX toe arm.
