You could put locktite under the flat of the washer.  There is a nice big surface area to glue to.

I don't think that's how locktite works ;)

It's an anaerobic adhesive! Mazda used it to glue the ring gear to the diff housing no joke. It's in the fsm :o

Alright. Well I'm not saying they don't have a special line of adhesives that could do the job, but try and 'glue' two washers together with plain ol loctite 242 and I'm pretty sure you're not going to get the results you're looking for.

Justin,

Do all your subframes use these larger eccentrics?
I just bought the car and I have no idea how old the subframe kit is.
I do know the alignment is terrible, drives like crap.
I'd like to upgrade to the latest and greatest setup before setting the alignment.

Thanks,
David

I put it back on the lift tonight and I do have the later style subframe.
However, my plates were never welded, and my D-Bolts are pretty well worn.  :banghead:

I'd like to upgrade to the new style bolts and plates, so I'll need a set of the crescent plates to weld on as well.

Justin, do you have the new style bolts in stock or do I need to get those from Mazda?

Do you have the crescent plates as well, and can you ship them, and the bolts if you have them, to me 2nd day air?
I'm in Virginia, by the way.

Thanks,
David

Finally got him via phone yesterday, and stressed that I needed the plates airmailed to me so I'd have them by Friday.
Still waiting on an email so I can PayPal him the money, and can't get an answer via phone at all today.   :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

I have very limited time to get this thing fixed and out of my shop, and need these parts desperately.

Man I tried for months to get some from him and never could, I had to get crafty and use a 3rd party. One of my fans on my version 2  setup was also bad right out of the box, I don't blame Justin for this, but I didn't waste my time trying to remedy the situation through him either, easier to just buy another one.

I called him and talked to him over the phone about getting replacement camber/caster plates a few weeks ago. At the time, he stated he didn't have any in stock and probably be around 2 weeks. I waited 2 weeks, sent him a text because I didn't want to be that guy that kept calling. No response, I ended up calling him and told him I still needed it. Since I'm 30 minutes away from his shop, I told him I would just come by and pick them up. I paid a little extra to have him weld my new bolts while I was there.

He's probably backed up or busy but he will take care of you eventually. He probably just needs an extra hand to answer calls, take orders, and send out shipments.

Just wanted to note that Justin did get me the parts.
He sent them 2'nd day air, with a guaranteed delivery Saturday, but naturally the USPS screwed that up.
The damn package sat in a post office 30 minutes from me all weekend, because the idiots at the Postal "Service" wouldn't let me pick them up from there.  :banghead:

I also asked about the "money back guarantee".  They said the shipper has to make the claim, even though I was the one who paid the extra fees.  I know they do this because most companies don't have time to screw around with them for someone else's money.  It's not so much the fee, but the principle of the thing that pisses me off.  >:(

End rant. Now I feel better.  LOL
