Patiece, Donald. Have you seen the write up Karl did 'bout his camber links? He has cutouts in his camber arms for shock clearence, so that means he's doing a great engineering job on his lcr's.

I have his camber arms but not installed........yet. Will be interesting to see what the design ends up being.

Dom's arms weren't too bad but the swaybar end link mount was too low in part due to the curve of the arm. Not sure how much the perch adjusted though but didn't like the ground clearance issue that resulted from the curve needed to incorporate the perch.

Personally the adjustable spring perch is not a big deal to me since that's what lowering springs are for LOL. Especially if it causes the above mentioned issues. I was more interested in the threaded end and being able to widen the rear track of the car abit when used in conjunction with adj. camber and toe arms. And of course the better looks as well. If they can still keep an adj perch with maybe less adjustment without the above mentioned problems then I'd be all for it.

We will see eventually.

Another reason we need rear lca's from Massive is cuz people are taking chances and gambling on getting product from Dominant Eng and unfortunately getting screwed over cuz once he has their money he is giving them the run around. They are lucky if they ever get their parts. Unfortunately since he is the only one with a rear lca they don't have a choice in suppliers at therefore put themselves at risk.

Yeah, very true. As all the people that buy this arms are going to be lowered to begin w/. Maybe a little adjust ment, but its not critical. As you see the Doms arm perch w/ lowering springs. And like you said 'bout the rear sway bar, being so low=wow. The only way to fix that is to run the sway bar upside down for clearence w/ the ground.

I'm just waiting for this piece because Massive is making it, which means its going to be high quality, look good with the rest of the purple, and most important, if there are actually any problems I know Karl will take care of it!

That said, if he don't hurry up the crap thats on my Focus now will join those whose arms have rusted into oblivion!

Exactly. You can count on Massive/Karl to take care of things if there is an issue. He has helped me out before :)

Lets just hope they're out before Christmas lol.

Kind of a satiny finish with a light texture.
