i need a picture of the hubs really mate, can't tell what the problem is from that.
you sure the wheels are zero toe before locking them over ?
Ok mate will do.. And no there not 100% zero toe thats tomorrows job..
Im pretty sure that if i align the toe as good as i can by measurements its still going to have the same problem???
I'll get some more pics tomorrow after ive finished and some better shots of the modded steering knuckle.
Right just been thinking a little bit more about this and by looking at this...

What ive done is really increased the ackerman angle instead of reducing it.
So in theory if i can move the knuckle further away from the rack it will reduce the center line and in theory it will reduce the ackerman angle?
Yes mine are very similar if not identical...
anyone can cut and shut them?
The Japs have been done this for years, took them a few years to get it right, as you can drastically mess the handling aswell!!
The key is getting the right position and angle of the tie rod end ,i have RYO ones and they are different to the above, but that would be telling.....
My advice, buy proper ones you know they work, tried and tested
I've seen the hubs you've got, and many more like it, i'm not new to this btw
This is how i've decided to mod them to work best for me, i had some on my R32 and they were amazing, i'm going to be cutting the knuckles in half and spacering the lower ball joint down for rollcenter adjustment
I've mesured up a few sets, included the posh ones phil has on his s15, so i know what needs to be moved.
Have a look at this Ian, it has an interesting way of doing it, pictures and info.

been running welded knuckles for 3 years now, no problem. Pics in my project topic (for a long while btw ).
Oh, and the knuckels arent cast iron. They're forged. Cast stuff would just break, and impossible to weld neatly.
Yeah that definitely looks like you have increased the ackerman not decreased it, i have mine directly inline with the bottom ball joint, only thing im now worried about is the wheel touching the tension rod.
Me an Clarkey are going to test fit ours today to compare so will hopefully get some pics up later.

Clarkey, try welding an exhaust manifold, you'll immediately know the difference
