    Agile Supra mk3 steering angle kit

    I was looking into getting more angle on my supra since we all know a modern truck can make a tighter turn. I came across this website that makes a bolt on steering angle kit for the A70 and looks like like a quality product at a decent price. I believe they also have lower control arms. Has anyone had an experience with these?

    Looks nice actually. I am kind of interested. Wondering how dropping that tie rod arm like that will effect wheels etc.

    I personally haven't but I know people that have them. Guy makes great products, I've had a few conversations with him. I'd buy with confidence, he uses all his parts in his drift A70

    Not many people know of them I don't think. And most mk3 guys don't want to spend 40 bucks. Could you imagine getting 400 out of their hands???. lol

    I've brought them up on here several times now. They make one of two adjustable lower control arms on the market.

    If you buy them, pick up some rod end boots.
    Otherwise you will be replacing those rod ends in a year.
    Rod ends don't like no maintenance, road grime, and water.

    And personally, I think:
    1) they look weak, like a pot hole will kill them, unless they are machined from stainless, not aluminum.
    2), if they are aluminum, they are way too much $$.

    Going over some of there other stuff on there website, I am inclined to say they are steel. My only concern I have found with the angle kit is, the cotter pins need to be much closer to the nuts. Allowing that much thread between the pin and nut is going to offer a scary ride for someone when they come loose.

    Nope, here is what they say in the text: "We use CNC billet 6061 alloy brackets ".

    Too much, too weak....
    Find a machine shop that caters to the tuner car market to make some.

    One other thing,
    If you ever use rod ends on the tie rods, always use safety washers, so when the rod ends do pop apart, like they have a habit to do, the tie rod won't completely come off.

    Sixpack, that sounds like one of those, "ask me how I know" posts if I ever saw one... I'll have to take a look at all my control arms while it's sitting in the air right now. Pretty sure I only have one set of arms that has rod ends, but I'll look over everything again, just in case. Thanks for the heads up!

    In the pictures on their website it looks like it has those washers in place. They also have room for full range of motion unlike the picture of the one you posted.

    That one looks like it will snap if the hub (im assuming thats what its attached to) moves up at all.

    Does anyone have information on how the steal versions went?

    I have been debating doing something alone this line, but a little worried about quality and longevity of the rack.

    Making that bracket out of steel is not necessary. Aluminum is plenty strong, many examples of similar products on the market today for other chassis.
