How do you guys feel about RCAs

As they correct your LCA geometry that gets thrown outa wack when you lower your car
Since the RCAs go inbetween knuckle and spindle, they do not affect your ride height, but instead, work towords getting your LCAs back to factory angle, which should greatly improve handling, wear/tear, what ever other BS
I could be speaking out of my ass, but from my understanding they are pretty important.
On a side note, i have ebay lower ball joints, and T3 RCAS didnt clear, so i went with XM since they are fully drilled through
Another side note, My first x7 I went with t3 RCAs as soon as i lowered it with coils. So i couldnt speak for a difference in handling.
Although on this car, Ive been runnin BC's for months without RCAs, and finally gonna get around to installing them within the next week, So I can let you know how they feel.

But I really can't recogmend the AE86 jockies red crap (TecnoTooTrashy).
Bought a set once.
Poorly machined, cheap hardware.
Buy XM, or Japanese.

Rue is still working on his prototype for x8 NRCA's which I will be trying out on my car, but real life kind of pushed his work back a little. I can honestly say that with my camber MAXED on the Megan's, it is sitting somewhere around normal... so any further negative adjustment would be impossible without adjusting the strut mount somehow. I have the alignment sheet somewhere, if you want details about how my front wheels sit at current to compare to how they will eventually sit with NRCA's installed.

I need to call him & catch up on how his projects are coming.

not a fan of NRCAs. too much scrub radius.

they do fit under some 15" wheels but not all. all cars they ame on came with 16's.

You running x7 stuff or x8 up front?

ideal LCA height is crossmember a little higher than the end of the LCA, so that most compression keeps it level.

also, you're probably going to need at least 16" wheels for that Z32 setup.
Ps: all that hellaflush/Stanceworks/stancenation scene-ster shit is gay. They say it's a lifestyle, but so is homosexuality.

I don't know if the guy was in Canada, or not, but they had a lumberjack look to them.
