    interesting idea. any reason it was moved to begin with? i like it simply to help the PS pump have another arm to make sturdy. oddly make the motor more compact

    Not saying it's wrong, should have a few Jack stands under it or some wood. I still use a jack to jack a car up and then out stands under it with the jack still holding so if or when the jack gives way, I don't get crushed. It's an extra 5min of time to find stands and out them under. I have a ton of OEM Jack's I put under everything when I pull stuff or make stuff

    i have an x7 rack that was "depowered" in its life, some sort of conversion rack bushings, is300 pump now, flipped pulley as it didnt line up previous, made a L bracket to support the pump, full AN line, blocked the solenoid off because it was unplugged before (steered like cadillac) then i did long LCAs, steering was difficult at low speeds, great on high way. decided to toss my x8 solenoid back on the rack, instant cadillac at all times, then my pump gave up and then i swapped pumps. maybe having it blocked off was bad? maybe it was my failing pump? maybe it was the longer LCAs as theres more tension and leverage (my supra has no PS and pre arms it was like stock, after arms its a tank)

    quite the opposite. my recaros have good waist sizing then widens out for leg and balls, all brides new and old ive sat in, all legit ones, are tight in the waist and dont widen much, so my balls have zero room, as well as the shoulders pushing in. the newer ones got better, but i still like the recaro for my body size

    The x8 solenoid fits the x7 rack at least. I have it in mine

    When my ps did not work it was just my solenoid. Then I hooked it back up, then my pump died lol. I used a is300 pump but they are spacer out a c hair more, so I flipped the pulley around and now it lines up correctly. A local friend jimmyd up a GM pump with a res on it, seems to be readily available and cheap but I have no interest in doing that much work for something I barely drive. If u do x7 rack it uses a different bush. From what I keep seeing all these urethane bushs are garbage. Mine slips, Jordan has eaten 2 sets I'm sure there's more who have had a ruff go of them. I'm going to look into oem replacements if I can't get these to stop slipping. When u turn the wheel and nothing happens on the highway...that's scary

    What's wrong with your rack? Do u not have the solenoid in your x8 rack connected?

    Sounds like your sized correct then for the bride's. Old balls and all. Lots of bride's for sale. I still think the srds, if not in terrible shape, are a great all around seat for comfort and staying put

    The omp and sparcos I've sat in are quite large for me. I'm 6'3 and mostly leg, slender frame, 200ish lbs now a days and broad shouldered. My spgs fit me the best. Ppl forget everyone is shaped different so when they talk about height and weight it doesn't really matter much due to where the weight and height is located

    Brides are very tight in the shoulders and skinny in the hips as a heads up. Do u have access to sit in any of these?

    my simpson is a M1995 unit, my new one is a M2010. do those old ones get recerted? i really like my old one better than the new one. new one is a bit stiff in the cheek. both my helmets use the same visors with different hardware, interesting how they chanegd and didnt change. i think in 2015 they started a new design and phased out all the old stuff. i dont really like the new stuff with their weird ribbing on the top.
