    OK so a little while back I started digging around for lower control arms... now that the KTM Works stuff has wrapped up I'm in a position to move on this. For those that don't know Ikeya Formula is a Japanese brand that make some truly high-end suspension components. They're not the cheapest, but they are the best.

    The way this will work is the parts are available at the prices below. There is no minimum order qty as there is no discount for qty, however we have a good chance to save some serious $$ in freight. Based on my earlier working up the group buy should save each participant approx $100 in freight (compared to ordering items individually) based on five or more participants.

    Items available as listed below

    1. Rear Lower Control Arm $803

    [​IMG]

    2. Front Roll Center Adjuster Kit $892

    [​IMG]

    3. Rear Traction Rod $216

    [​IMG]

    4. Rear Upper Control Arm (Camber Arm) $338

    [​IMG]

    5. Tie Rod End $376

    [​IMG]

    So let me know what grabs your fancy. Again the savings will be in freight. Once I know roughly what the interest level is I'll be in a position to firm up some freight charges ex Japan.

    I'll kick things off

    Do the NA frames not have traction rods? They make a rear toe rod but not for Z32...

    There is no way those RUCA's will fit the zed.....

    They are probably S13 or similar

    That's the stock "Nissan" photo from the catalogue. Searching online brings up the two versions below. I agree the single arm version looks to straight to fit a Z32 and the part is most likely the conventional design pictured on the right. In any case the correct parts for z32 are what will be supplied.

    Think I've been mistaken. Is there a rear toe rod available?

    They don't list one for Z32, do you know if S13/14/15 are the same?

    Tension rods are also available separately for anyone wanting them but not wanting lower front arms (ie roll centre correction kit).

    Bush type $304
    Rose joint type $328 (pictured below)

    How much are replacement bushes for the bush type?

    Pretty sure I have a set of these but bushes are shot.

    Good idea, assuming they'll fit the same. Will have to measure up the inside diameter and width compared to stock.

    Do you have any in stock? How much?

    Guys this will definitely go ahead but currently on the back burner while the TwinZ design stuff is being finalised. Please continue to register your interest.

    Cheers

    Back on Track

    Guys it's time for me to pull the trigger on this one as I finally have my rear end apart and need these rear arms to put it back together.

    At current exchange rates pricing is as follows

    Rear Lower Control Arms $876.58
    Front Roll Center Adjuster Kit $973.04
    Rear Traction Rod $236.33
    Rear Upper Control Arm $368.96
    Tie Rod End $409.95

    I'm going to set the cutoff date as two weeks from now. If you want to order any of the parts please PM me to arrange payment of the full amount for the value of your parts. I will order the bulk order and pay freight to Sydney, and we will split the cost of freight when they arrive.

    Cheers

    Not to take things off topic but the half moon rear camber arms are the s14/15 design and will most probably fit (also a superior design as they make it much easier to get the rear strut in and out).

    If they sell r32 rear (non hicas) toe arms they will fit, if they are a straight design though they won't suit super low z32's.
