Default Battle Version Adjustable Arms

2 quick Qs about these arms; first off has anyone on here ever run them? I know some S-chassis guys do and I never heard any complaints about quality. Secondly will these fit a 1st gen ucf10? If so these are a inexpensive alternative when compared to the Nagisa Auto arms.

lots of the local guys run them with good results. they correct toe and you can add more negative camber. they are def of good quality, i know since i have the toe arms but have not installed them yet. as for fitting on a UCF10, i would think they would fit as the site states 94-00 eh?

this guy is running the full set of battle version arms, and RCAs up front plus custom work like shortening of axles and knuckles to achieve this looks. i think he is actually the guinea pig for all these arms working directly with battle version. learn more about it in his thread here:

Battle version is Alex Pfeiffer's company that produced fab'd parts for a range of chassis. quality as far as i know/have seen is extremely good. He proto'd the parts on sick's car, and they're sold under his brand name and the Studio brand name.

other than the NRCAs, the arms shouldn't be interchangeable between 1st ('89-94) and 2nd('95-00) gen cars. likely a typo on his site, as the Studio site has them listed as '95-00 only.

Just got an email from Battle Version saying that they are going to start developing adjustable arms for the UCF10 soon. They just need a test mule for the parts and some time, they've been really busy with getting ready for Formula D Longbeach.

Are they going to make anything regarding the front end? There is probably just as much demand for the front pieces for those that want to dial it in factory or VIP spec.

the only thing that would help the front is a hi-steer kit and maybe upper or lower control arms. (lowers are more likely given the design, and wouldnt require a custom balljoint.)

If they would put out a high quality, even non adjustable front upper control arm, for less than the cost of oem, I would be all over it.

true, i bought from studio, and received parts with battle version labelled on them. same good stuff!

good to know about the differences between UCF10 and UCF20 arms!

that being said, there may be something to be said for possibly converting the front LCA+Strut Rod+Strut Rod Bracket on a 1LS to that of a 2LS, which would make dealing with the strut rod a hell of a lot easier..... but there would need to be a lot of measuring needed to determine if it throws the geometry off or not.

This is pretty interesting as I talk to both companies as I need to get suspension components for my 91 LS400 and I asked Studio and they said some parts will fit and then I asked battle version and they said they design parts for studio so now I'm confused. Here's the email i got from Studio.

the RCAs will be interchangeable, and they may know about the arms+links.

I'm confused now....didn't you post earlier stating that the arms shouldn't be interchangeable?

the FRONT arms will not interchange. the RCAs will (because you can swap LBJs).

the REAR arms are possibly interchangeable, though i don't know if the alignment specs will be the same. this is because the rear suspension isnt a very different design/implementation between the 2 generations.
