Uncle Quazimoto was very busy over last week.

Does this count as the first West Coast SN95 air bag intact conversion?

His car handles beautifully! I can't wait to get started converting mine now that the wrinkles are worked out!

I remain...

Uncle Quazimoto (his own chosen code name) said that I could post pictures of his completed conversion, but asked that I not identify him yet since he is too busy at the moment to answer any questions himself.

His 1988 LSC is indeed sporting FMS 13" slotted and cross drilled front rotors and Cobra two-piston calipers. Comparing his front tires to the front tires on the MACHVII, I am hard pressed to say if they are sticking out any further at all. They sure look exactly the same. Both cars are running (real) Cobra R rims and 245/45ZR17 tires so it is an absolute apples to apples comparison. 1995 Cobra spindles seem to be the perfect fit with the extended ball joints for proper front end geometry.

In regards to the ball joint spacer, I will quote directly from the e-mail that I received about a month ago. "Spent my morning yesterday turning (trade term for lathe work) some ball-joint adapter bushings, yes yours are done too. We talked before about why no one has had them made yet that’s easy cost. If we were to walk in off the street it’s time and material, in our case the numbers are to low to run it on a CNC and the rates for conventional machining run around $50. to $60. an hour. Our material was about $6.00 for a pair and it took me about 40 minutes each to make so our labor charge would be in the range of $68. to $80. per pair that would mean it would cost around $80.00 to $100.00 for a pair if we didn’t have access to the tools to do it ourselves. We are willing to share drawings and you can post pictures of yours if you want but unless Bryan wants a set I ain’t making anymore."

The handling with the SN95 spindles and all new bushings is awesome. It doesn't hurt that Uncle Quazimoto also has new Billstein struts, the Maximum Motorsports panhard bar and HP Motorsports rear lower control arms. I my own a giant stack of suspension parts and will be following in his footsteps once I return from a trip to Los Angeles.

I remain...

Hey, Mike!

I thought that production was your gig.

Tee-hee!

Ah....forget that, I spent an hour at Jake and Pete's Hot rod shop with a 7* spindle reemer for $30. It is posible your spacers might offest the price due to cheaper balljoints over the SVO units, but I doubt it......non the less, very good work.

One important question I still need answered....what tie rods did he use? Did he have to use sn95 rack/rods or did he stick with the factory unit? The more and more I think about the swap, the more I think I can easily keep the stock rack/rods.

If you get the chance...take the First page of this thread and you and Quazimoto go over it and add true false staments so I can update it. .

You want to give a "forget that" to Uncle Quazimoto's work and then ask for more advice?

Your mamma didn't raise you very well.
