    They do if you buy them and spray them black.

    It mentions using these with your coilover system but what about an otherwise completely standard car? For example my car is a Daily and I love the slammed look but don't want to have to use stiff coilovers plus various different arms that need maintenance?

    They were tested on a completely stock S14 except for coilovers, so I'm oretty sure it will work yes.

    The offset spacers look great, nice bit of work there :thumbs:

    These hubs are going to fly off the shelf at that price, top notch :)

    Awesome stuff!! seriosly thinking about buying a set!!

    One thing tho Phil, they will not work with stock suspension struts as the wheels will hit the spring pan on the front?

    I'm here in the US! I'm glad you guys took the time to develop something like this. I haven't seen anything offered similar to the things you develop for the rear knuckle anywhere.

    As far as the geometry, the info on your website states "Hub Knuckles with completely new geometry settings", but how exactly does it change the geometry versus the stock geometry? I'm going to be using these on my track built road s14. Also, I'd be glad if I could purchase just the rear knuckles as I already have GP Sports Hyper front knuckles. Thanks a million!

    I assume the bushes are poly?

    Mostly interested by the raised stub axle. The lock is just a bonus. Wish I could justify buying some.
    Best piece of kit DW has done yet. Keep up the awesome work!

    Edit: (re-read the shop page, yes the bushes are poly)

    im building a grip car... i want to fix my roll center and lower the center of gravity by lowering the car obviously.... i currently in the rear run z32 aluminum uprights with all spherical bearings (no more rubber bushings or binding polyurethane)... im wondering if you will offer a z32 type and if you will make aluminum ones... as well as spherical bearings as opposed to polyurethane bushings.

    Thanks, please get back to me.

    Edit: also just remembered, my rear knuckle i had to cut the brake ears as the brake kit i use has a lil piece that goes behind the hub (or err sorry in front) and well that mount piece is for the caliper.. i lose e-brake.. im gona guess ill have to have a new caliper bracket made... they are wilwood calipers from www.arizonzcar.com 6pot front 4pot rear and well the 4pot rears basically do that.

    Also I do not necessarily want more steering angle... its not a drift car.... so whats up with that? Is it adjustable or built into it and unchangable.

    Lastly, what is that lil steering rack offset bushing/adapter... im a lil confused. Is that again something to do with steering angle? Would it benefit me if i run alot of caster (say 8-9* vs stoockish 6-7*).

    Thanks :)

    There will be no Z32 type, or aluminium, or spherical bearings for the moment, although the bearings are something we want to look into for the future :)

    The extra lock is something that depends on your lock stops, so if you retain the original lock stops, the steering angle will be restricted by around the same amount as before.
    The steering rack spacers will be of benefit if you are running that much castor, as they will effectively move the steering rack back to it's correct position.

    Was wondering what the benefits from your nuckles will be compared to f.ex MA Motorsports modified Awesometron 5000 front spindles?

    The MAM and PSM kits are both really good, strong and proven- but if you can't see the MASSIVE benefit of the Geomaster hubs over a cut about OEM knuckle then I don't really know what to say.

    I currently have the PSM kit but I'm not sure if I'm gonna bother with it now these are available....

    What is the PSM kit you are talking about?

    I ask because I have the MA nuckles now and are pretty happy with them, I did these because I wanted more steering lock of course. And yes I see a ALOT of diffrence in these kit, that's why I ask what's the biggest diffrence/benefit. I see that these are a very nice piece of kit and are consider changing the front nuckles and adding the rear as well. But I will not spend that amount if the benefits/extra I will get compared from my MA nuckles is minimal. That's all :rolleyes:
