Crossmember Mods   10 comments

Im still waiting on a few things to get my turbo setup completed but my car is booked in for a tune next saturday.

Today i dropped the engine crossmember and modified it so that the steering rack is further forward.

Before:

After:

By moving the rack forward you can have really aggressive knuckles and a good amount of castor without the tierods over-centering and binding up. This gives you the ability to run more steering angle.

If there is anyone wanting this mod done to there crossmember get in contact with me and i’ll sort you out.

Straight bolt in,  no modification of the steering column or ps lines needed.

  1. good work adam

  2. I would be so down for this, but im in the US!!! Nice work!!

  3. Nice work. I can see you’ve used some clips or something to hold it tighter, right? Where’d you get these? Is that literally all you’ve done? Just bang some clips on to pull it toight?

    I’d be interested in getting this done. Where you based dude?

    • I don’t really understand what you mean by “clips”. All the mounting points on the crossmember for the rack have be modified to move the rack forward

  4. Awesome!!! How much would it cost?
