No kidding, waited for quite a long time for this. Gave up, bought the Magnum. Got new driveshaft and spline yoke. 

1 season later, it gets released.

Justin Samberg was kind enough to confirm its a 5/8 bore with 5/8-18 female thread. Pretty standard stuff.

Pick your poison.

Copying from my facebook thread I started:

I was driving back from the Tail of the Dragon to my hotel and it started to rain hard (again). The kind of rain where you can barely see anything. I slowed her down and I noticed the car was darting all over the place. I wasn't sure at the time if it was the rain or the damn alignment slipped again. Luckily, I was on my way to the enclosed trailer to pack her up to home anyway.

I have been chasing a problem on the RX-7 for the last 5 years. The car has always felt a little unsettled on our craptastic WI roads. The alignment has been bumped or forced out of alignment on at least 3 occasions. I believe it happened again at the Tail of the Dragon. That could have resulted in bad things if it slipped anymore than it did.

I found one end link stud (Samberg) was actually BENT and one of the caster/camber bolts slipped out of position. (I took pics of them after my 3rd trip to the alignment shop) Also carved out a piece of steel to brace any alignment slipping and tacked it into place.

Replaced both end link studs, tested for bump steer, and did an old school alignment. (I'm actually getting good at this now LOL)

Took the car for a test drive and it has NEVER felt so planted and sure-footed over crappy roads. I have actually changed tire sizes (taller sidewall) because of this issue. I questioned my coilovers being too stiff. Nope! Just incorrectly corrected bump steer.

Did you need the cone spacers like someone mentioned above?


What method did you use to adjust the bump steer? Did you have one of those Longacre tools like this:

Anybody have a picture of this installed?  Trying to understand how to this replaces or is used with Samberg's bump steer. I dont get it. Am I looking at the right thing? Is this like a taller spacer?

I'm assuming we disassemble this tie rod end and replace with the above???

Nice shout out to Matt in your video! The video on the suspension changes is awesome. Makes me want to grab some KWs, if I could find them. Now, you're having me consider upgrading my Sikky shifter!

Just saw the video myself, got me thinking about the KW HLS kit.   I'm assuming it's this universal kit for $4000  :o  :yay:

Anyone know if it's limited to all the way up / all the way down?

I put this thing in my build, and the shifter came up dead center with a T56 magnum..  And it's like half the price of the Sikky one.

Are you sure you linked the right part?  The image they picture show show a shifter that goes straight up. There is no offset.

Bump.... Sikky now offers a 5.5" setback. Any opinions if this would be more ideal?

I have been on the fence doing this as well. Which specific clutch part number did you go with?

You forgot to mention which transmission you are running. Gearing of the trans is going to change the answer.  GTO vs F-body M6?
