RRO OTT steering

Have been running the Zuk about 2 weeks with the OTT
steering setup from RRO. Well engineered and everything
fit quite well. Had a little problem with seating the
driver's side arm into the kingpin bearing.
I had a z-link before and still had a little bumpsteer.
That is gone and the steering is much more responsive
and tighter.

Re: RRO OTT steering

Was it the Stage 1 or Stage II?

I originally won the Stage 1 kit at the fall Zuwharrie. I was happy with the way it installed, and I noticed a big difference with steering performance.

Unfortunately the tie rod still rubbed on the leaf springs. Last week I ordered the Stage II upgrade, it should be here this week.

Its the stage II. The tie rod is way up out of the way.

Re: RRO OTT steering

Yep! I run it too and like it a lot. Been beating on it for close to a year and all is well [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: RRO OTT steering

Has anybody noticed a large amount of rust on the arms that mount into the kingpins?

I installed mine and within a few days there was some pretty major surface rust. Doesn't look like it would any structural effect, but it looks like hell. I was thinking of taking it off when I receive the stage II pieces, and coating or painting them.

Re: RRO OTT steering

I actually painted mine with self etching primer and then black semi-gloss. No rust so far

Re: RRO OTT steering

I did the same. A couple of good coats of marine primer
followed by a few coats of enamel on the arms, tie rod, and
drag link should keep well until banged up. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]
