MY to L Series Control arm Conversion Pictorial

Started the conversion this afternoon, the list of parts follows
1. L Control Arms
2. MY CV joints mounted on L Shaft (or longer in my case because i might push the camber out with more with my camber kit, thus i need a longer shaft, which i can get, will post number/vehicle later)
3. Modified XD/XE/XF radius rods
Pretty pic of most of the parts (plus ball joints)


The camber kit


The before shot with all the standard stuff


The difference between the two control arms (MY being the dirty one, L the red/maroon one). The L one gives the car more positive Castor thus better return to center also better camber, due to the extra length(left to right on pic), thus giving better corning.


More info to come......

The parts required (All parts are L series except the Radius/Castor Rods, either custom made or can use modified XD Falcon ones)


The End Result

I have heard of this XD falcon radius rods but what do you have to modify on them?

I beleive you have to forge the ends flat & drill holes in order to join them to the Subaru control arms. From memory there's a 30 odd degree bend in the Falcon rods too, can't remember if this is straightened or cut off short.
