OK guys, they're ready!
I have 8 sets of rear camber/toe adjustable brackets for sale.
I picked up all 90 pieces today from Rich, I spent all evening braking (forming the bends) them up, and the bolt hardware arrives tomorrow. I have no bills, so please don't ask how much, yet. I will post, hopefully before Canby. I'll have a price by the time I leave.
But they are here and ready. I will be bringing a few sets to Canby, so if you are there, find me, I’ll be displaying them. If you want to buy them there, it’ll save the cost of freight.
Yahoo. I actually can't wait to get them on my own car!

Just waiting for the cost on the laser cutting before I can post a price for the set up.

In the meantime - here are the finished brackets with all new plated hardware. I upgraded the swivel bolts to 10.9, being that many people will really crank on these. I may also buy a box of larger washers for the swivel bolts so that people can tack them in place after an alignment. I'd recommend this for most people, as once it's adjusted, you'll likely not move them again.

However, for those into racing, where you may be changing your settings on a regular basis, I found this special bolt. I could only get a few because they are really expensive - it'll be a $17 option for the two bolts if you want them because of their cost.

Hi Byron

These parts look really great, just read through the entire topic and man, all I can say is I wish I was able to do even half the things that you do to your dime.

I know it has been a long time, but is there any chance that a set of these is available at all?

Regards
Jared

Oh yes, they are very much still available.
I sell about 4 sets a year, but I've got all the bits for about 30 sets on hand right now! I just need to form and assemble them to order, it all takes up less space this way.

Order any time, they're ready to go.

Shoot me a PM

Hey Byron,
I was lookin on the forums an saw this thread about slotting the rear crossmember in the 510. Will these brackets work on a 280ZX? I know the rear in both cars is very similar. If so, do you have anymore bracket up for sale? Thankx a lot!!!
