      they weigh in at 68 onces each so shipping would b cheep
      PS..... Your front arms and such u got from jerod will need adjustments to go to 02M front axles
      AKA MK2 vr6 front knuckles... ball joints are larger then rabbit versions




      Had the out quick on saturday
      I built some front and rear bumper support brackets to allow for some rotisserie action

      Got a few other goodies back in the mail....
      My comp. controller now has adjustable bias




      what do you mean the controller now has adjustable bias? like front to rear bias? how much and how is it controlled? can you give it more rear bias than front?

      Yes Its adjustable
      Haldex is a controlled limited slipping decoupler
      Rears can NOT provide more power to the ground then the front > EVER...
      They can only be removed from providing power to the ground

      Calipers = Girling-60 dual pots
      Tie Rods = Adjustable Heim threaded into swaged tubing thats then welded to a portion of an OE inner

      so was it modified to be able to change bias? I thought the comp controller was just...there (for lack of better term). As in changes bias but not adjustable.

      Yes it was modified to be variable across the range 0 to full lock
      NOT a settings game like the gen 2+4 AKA performance 1 or 2 or 3 and done

      Um
      100% >>> NECESSARY
      Thats the oil feed port to the head man

      I have seen debate on what the valve actually does tho.....
      check valve OR restrictor is the question

      I should have been more specific

      The plate I made is for ABA engines
      The early short block stuff only has 1 feed and NO valve
