OTT / Crossover / Knuckle over Steering
It's time to set up another SPOA zuk, and I want to get everyone's opinion about their steering solutions.
On my last zuk, I started off with a Z-link an hated it. The bump steer was terrible.
Luckily, I won a Stage I OTT steering from Rocky Road at the fall '03 Zuwharrie. This kit moves the draglink, but not the tie rod. I ran it this way for a while and it worked very well, but the tie rod still rubbed. I ordered the Stage II upgrade. After a few issues with RR, I finally received and installed the upgrade, and it works very well.
For the next zuk, I'm skipping the Z-link and going straight to a OTT. Just not sure who's yet...
Breeze : $375 - I have heard a lot of good things about this kit, but it doesn't move the tie rod.
Trail Tough : $279 - Least expensive kit, and I have always had a good experience dealing with Brent and Linda. From the pic, it looks like it only bolts to the caliper.
Rocky Road : $329 - 10% discount (Matt promised to hook me up because of all the issues last time). Nice kit, but I'm still a little gun shy of ordering from RR. Maybe Art can put in a good word for me? [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Any others I should consider? Please chime in with any experiences (ease of installation, quality, etc)
