I ran it on my car at 5-6 events last year with no problems, I just put on 2 m14 lock washers and used an air gun to get it tight, its pretty fucking ghetto but my steering feels great. i also converted to s-chassis inner tie rods (m16x1.0) because i use modified s14 knuckles

 

I eventually want to get a piece welded on that keeps the spacer in place using the small notches in the ends of the rack

Fuck that shit Chris postage is fucked between USA to AUS.

 

I learnt that from my WTB USDM tail lights thread.

that looks the exact same as a rack spacer.

 

 

I might be more susceptible to do it if finding a RHD rack wasn't so hard. but i can't really risk blowing my rack.

i actually have less rack travel with my spacer than with a normal cressida tie rod end. but with the knuckles i have i still hit the (s14) control arm first

If any of you want quicker steering, here is how you do it:

Howe 2:1 steering quickener with custom shaft, and special universal joint for the X8.

I have sourced an aftermarket univeral joint that has the standard 3/4" spline on one end, and the other end has the Toyota rack spline.

Turns the 3 turn lock to lock rack into a 1.5 turn.

They are the DMax rack spacers you fit the bigger one to the passenger side and smaller one to the driver side. unsure why as of yet as other companies have one for each side. but hey Dmax guys have some big entries

So I got my xm knuckles on my 81. And as I figured, I'll need a longer tie rod setup. I've read this whole thread I'm just not sure what's going to be best

 

Ae92 or legacy inner tie rod

 

OR

 

Is there a longer outer tie rod I can use. (S14?) with my stock inners
