  2. Get outta me thread you Steering gear perverts! !!! Hehehe. Ute is under cover today after her clean up. I popped the side pipe back on. Gets a lil loud at 100-110km/hr. Bolted straight up no probs after a clean up..... Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  3. Hey chestnut me ol son. Yeah changing height changes camber angle. Probably find you got too much camber and riding more on inner edge of tyres... Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  4. Cheers for your concern fellas. Sorry was out of credit and doing stuff at home. Yeah. Im not too impressed but what can you do. But..... For about 6 years I have tried to tell people that the toe in/ castor on the passenger side is wrong. I could see it by eye. Now its not perfect yet but it is HEAPS better. Below is Outback specs.... Then a copy of wheel align when I rolled in after the tie rods were unwinding from old alignment.. .. And one of when I rolled out with an alignment that was done properly.... Still got a lil work to do on alignment but it's a different ute. Much better road feel. You got to agree its not good... any idiot knows castor not right.... nothing is right. As for the tie rod adjusters.... just do ya job properly..... checked is checked. Washed the ute... so included some ute porn.....inside got done too. Jack.
  5. Lol. Yeah me... this aint africa but I have to hunt something. ... hehe. Bloody South Aussies.... tell ya. Better than mexicans but..... Cough cough.... except ando.... lol Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  6. 2rr, mate my favorite all time boots. Rossi shearers boots. Have a leather flap that covers your laces and buckles on the side. Bloody brilliant ... havent seen a pair for ages. Happy Birthday... sorry Im late. Metal work is bloody brilliant as usual mate....... keep it up. And tell the missus.... brass wire brushes are for cleaning threads... bot removing eyeliner... hehe. Hope she is better now. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  7. Yeah, I've made mistakes before... lots..... shit happens. But they will refund though. Not paying for that full stop and the fact I paid someone else to fix it again. Arguing the point would be very stupid. Hear ya there dean. Those good lazer set ups have come down in price a bit now..... love one of those.... 4K..... but even gives you a before and after print out. With pictures for the numerically challenged. Its not that he just missed the tie rod lock nuts but second time I've paid for an alignment that wasn't done properly. ... not even close. Nice day today... go for a cruise and enjoy it with the limpy ol dog. Let ya know how I go. Jack. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  8. Good idea Dave. .. diy alignment be the go.It definitely handles heaps better. Yeah mate. I remember when you had that one snap. I can imagine a muddy folding in, hitting the chassis and stopping... ..instant front flip. I was doing 110km/h the whole way. Im going to go back for a refund but that will do. Just wont go back after for any work. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  9. Hey dean... Today was a bit hairy. Started off great. ..sunny, roaring ute in the country , tooting at farmers seeding/ spraying. Then about 75km into the trip something seemed loose. So pulled over, nipped up wheels. Driving... still not right... getting slowly worse. Shudder in the front... doing crazy stuff. Brakes even weird. Drop dog at vet.... 100m down road ... tyre shop. Clarks. Young fellas there like the ol outback. .. not much on... on the hoist. Check alignment... something is seriously wrong. The caster was adjusted to proper spec, then the camber, then when we got to the new adjusters.... loose. Tie rod adjusters. .. lock nuts not tightened. I'd been driving for 150km with them winding out slowly. Crazy. Even the tyre shop owner said its just shit and should of been checked.... and he's right. Won't be going back to local shop again and tomorrow when I'm a bit calmer will ask for a full refund. Not paying for that shit. Maybe I should buy a lotto ticket... Lol. Jack.

  10. GMG when bitches ya have an arguement or some other probem with ..... caused by them...... decide to hold a grudge forever or just plain out stitch ya up behind ya back because they are gutless game playing alcoholic pricks or methed up twats. Never letting you defend yourself while they play the hero. Be responsible for your own actions! And maybe just maybe... blame yaself for ya own dickhead attitudes. Grrrrrrrrrrr .........

  11. Cheers mate, I got it on my laptop. I also have one of the only surviving copies of that Exact promo on VHS video cassette. Found it on ebay years ago. Had ute wheel alignment done sort of..... lol. It's apparently all fine . He said he can' believe I set up the tie rods... because they are spot on. Have a small problem in that I think he said the castor is out, was + 3 degrees. Supposed to be + 1.5 Its 4 mm out from front and back as well on passenger side but that looks to be chassis alignment related. Pitman arm didnt go on as he could see no slop and it was a shit to get off anyway. Wheels still will get a wheel balance and I'll check wheel bearing adjustment. Thinking of getting a second opinion on caster set up when I'm in the Big Smoke. He didnt want to stuff other settings by adjusting the castor. As others were within spec and it drives.. ok. Anyhoo... thats it for now. Have a good one. Jack Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  12. Ute booked in for pitman arm fitting, wheel alignment and balance tomorrow. I also got wheel bearings in back just incase they need them. I took it for a drive... its not too bad but needs sorting. Be nice to just drive it for a bit. .. hehe. Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  13. Front steering is done bar pitman arm and wheel bearings if needed. Then she can go for an alignment and balance and check over.. but I'm pretty happy... toe in will be out and stuff so we'll see how she comes up. Handles pretty nice over bumps etc Direction feels more positive. May need new front shocks soon... Passenger side was average at best. Time for Konis or something good front and rear. Pics of passenger side and US Mustang roller bearing perch modified to fit an XG ute arm. I'd say our front upper arms are slightly different to stangs. More rounded and bit narrower in the centre......
  14. I know a guy who does stuff like this.... he's buggered now... Good work Chestnut. If ya can even a new set of rubbered spring perches would help free.. and maybe new shocks for the springs. Like the scoop! Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
  15. No worries gerg. Excuse my bodgy ozito bench grinder engineering.... he he he Yeah... I would also be keeping an eye on the area where the shaft of the saddle bolts to the upper arm also. Its a slightly sharper shape on the shaft compared to the larger rounded stock cut out. Something else to watch. Pretty sore but want this front end sorted by today. Sun just come up.... get a bit of light and warmth I'll start. Do spring saddle mod... lower ball joint.... Idler arm...... Done! Off with upper arm again.... envy you guys with lowered cars and easy to remove springs sometimes..... sometimes..... Sent from my GT-S7583T using Tapatalk
