Geomaster knuckle(sandwich)

Zilvia,

Looking for a little feedback. I'm running a geomaster front knuckle on an s14 and I'm not convinced that I've got the full potential out to them. I am thinking that my lca is extended a little too long. The tension rods fits to a point, but I think this is causing a little too much caster and an early lock-out on the control arm:

Full lock to the left - driver side

Full lock to the right - driver side

I did a quick measurement of roughly 16" +/- 1/8" from the center of the heim joint (subframe side) to the end of the lca. Also, my wheels do not rub the front of the fender. Before I start taking this all apart again, I am curious what others with similar configurations might be doing.

Inputs appreciated, thanks in advance.

There are a lot of factors that play into this. Are you running rack offset spacers or is your rack moved forward? Do you know what caster you're running? Have you played with caster at all?

Are you running rack offset spacers or is your rack moved forward? Yes, driftworks spacers

Do you know what caster you're running? I don't. My caster/camber gauge isn't here yet

Have you played with caster at all? Yep. It's a few degrees positive, but cannot say how much without my gauge
