OK so update time......
Sorry for the lack of updates weve been super busy creating a new body kit and fenders for the MX83 Cressida. Here is a little video of the results.
On to the Celsior ......I've been dailying the car for last 2 months and absolutely love it. The rear Work M1R were quite wide and didnt fit into the fenders with the stock arms and that is why it was so high. As seen here
I installed our SERIALNINE rear arm set including RLCA, Toe and Traction arm. The RLCA adjusts from 12mm shorter then stock to 20mm longer, on my car this is able to give me -10° camber with the stock RUCA. The SERIALNINE toe arm adjusts from stock length to + 51mm this allows you to have correctly set toe from your stock camber to all the way the -10. With all but the RUCA bushings replaced with high quality Teflon lined rod ends the rear suspension of the car is almost complete but you can really feel the slop in the subframe bushings. Next up on the rear is to replace the subframe and diff bushings with solid Delrin ones.
On the front I installed our SERIALNINE FUCA these have been designed to give you more negative camber then the stock arms and bottom out on the strut tower later. At their maximum length they are 20mm shorter than the stock arm and at minimum length 46mm shorter then stock. On my car this gave me additional -2 to -5 degrees over stock camber. They also utilize a replaceable factory style ball joint that is 10mm shorter then stock. This means not only does it have an additional 10mm of clearance but you can simply replace worn ball joints not the whole arm.
So finally with my arms in I was able to camber the wheels and lower the car to what I deem to be an expectable right height. With the new front arm I was able to drive around and not have the FUCA bottoming out on the strut tower anymore. The only problem was with these wheels the fronts were too narrow to run fully cambered so I chose to pull some camber out in order to get the wheel to sit closer to the fender . I was quite happy now, the car was finally starting to look like how I wanted it to. Everyone used to be “ wow your car looks so good : etc... but in my mind it looked like ****. But now I was all stoked to be driving it around.
Spring meet here in Vancouver
My Friends Colin and Mikey with Lukah the frenchy. Also some random guys taking photos.
Got Colin to take some slow rolling shots
Here you can see how the front wheel is too narrow even with the negative camber dialed out
Out for lunch
With in a week of getting the arms on one of our customers expressed interest in the Work M1Rs, He came by the shop in his JZX90 to test fit the wheels and decided he wanted them. The next week he came by to pick them up. I was left with no wheels, this was really weird for me because only a year ago I had 12 Work M1Rs. Eight I sold to Alex Lee so he could run them on his Formula D GS300, now these four. Then right after I also sold my SSR Vienna Courage leaving me with no 5 lugs wheels.
