    also you are running non-M knuckles, same as me. It seems like the guys with M-knuckles dont have any wheel positioning problems. I read somewhere that the M knuckles may have some additional built in caster, pushing the axle centerline even more foward than the offset CABs and 97 M-arms will give you (this was just an idea, nobody can seem to confirm it)
    Its a myth. M knuckles and non M knuckles are the same (relation of the centerline of the spindle to the centerline of the balljoint)

    The only difference I saw when comparing them side by side was the offset of the brake caliper was completely different.

      Hey dave,

      You used brand new break pads right? because I have a set with about 50% worn off. Do you think they will clear or maybe use some 3mm spacers along with it?

        interesting.. and good to finally see that somebody has compared the two.
        i wonder still what it is that causes some guys' swaps to end up with the front wheels off center in the wheelwell, and others end up looking fine

                I have an opportunity to pick up a set of MoMo Mirages with center caps. really debating it right now :( I don't really like the looks, but I could have them powder coated and polish. Should I?
