Ohh, I cant wait to see pics of all these toys getting installed.

The original post says the rear control arms prices are "each" where as the TTT rear control arms are around the same price for a pair, is that right? Is there a big difference in quality?

I believe, but others will best comment, that there is no comparison between Arizona and Techno Toy with no offense to the latter.

I've been interested in purchasing their brake kit when the time is right (exchange rate/spare money/when I actually need the parts), last time i talked to dave the handbrake caliper wasn't ready for sale and he was going to contact me when it was...so if it is now could you please add me to the list.

Since then it's also come to my attention that you can't really get these brakes through a RWC. Has anyone looked into having the brake lines on the calipers machined/re-tapped to tapered threads, along with anything else that may be required?

Hi Evan,

Not sure if you want rears fronts both and the hand brake set up, can you just clarify?

Cheers

John

Sorry for not being clear John, I'm interested in the entire brake setup, but if it can't be engineered I don't really see the point, so only put me down as a maybe - what path are you taking for brakes and suspension?

No problems,

As I have said this is only an EOI and will be treated that way until we get a response back from Dave, Im sure some will opt out and others will opt in but at least this gives us a great quantative idea of possible savings.

I have the Toyota Surfs all ready for the front at this stage and am considering the rears at the moment, I may even go Daves kits, not sure yet.

Cheers

John

Heads up,

I have emailed Dave at Arizona with the numbers and also instructions on what we are looking for, I will update this thread once I get a response, for obvious reasons however, I will not be posting all financial details in this thread, I will however communicate via PM with the listed members as to confidential details and also to those that may still be interested post Dave's reply.

Cheers

John

unfortunately not. http://www.infrastru...2_01Jan2011.pdf page 9, last sentence of section 2.7.2 : "Caliper pistons must be fitted with dust seals."

the other pain with using wilwoods should they not pass engineers, is that any decent engine mods will require a brake upgrade, thereby meaning you need a decent "engineered" set aswell - although some vented two pot calipers would prob do the job, but then why not just stick with them.

I've read something saying the wilwoods used by arizona z car do have a seal in them, they just dont call it a 'dust seal', not sure if this is true or if a certifying engineer could/would agree...

might be best off to buy all their suspension gear and swap it in/out in one hit when defected

How hard would it be to just make up a little rubber gasket that seals around the pistons?
