Hey, give Perry a killer deal on your old axles so we can do an SAS on his rig and get him back on the road.
Yeah!!

You know, I took a hard cut into that turn and found myself with steering that was held hard to the right and would not even come back to center - all the weight on the front. I had to use the hand throttle in reverse to even hold it, and then a lot of pedal to get it to back off enough to get the steering straightened. I figure another 12-18" in that direction and I would have easily flopped.

Given your front end condition, if you were on the same line, no surprise. I think I probably bent my sector shaft trying to straighten it back out as my steering wheel is cocked a bit despite tracking perfectly straight. Good thing I have that core steering box, rebuild kit, and 105 series sector shaft ready to go

You can use either one. I can get the FROR set up or the Supra set up so you have an E brake...........kinda nice. Why is there a better way?

I will need some parts of it but that is an option if Perry is interested.

Not that I know of. I used the Supra calipers, and the e-brake works well enough to pass CM tech. They are getting kind of rare, though.

Bummer but good to know. I am going to start a thread in the tech section for advice etc. Should make for some good humored arguments.
