  • Z32 Inners w/ ??? Outters?

    So I know the Z32 Inner Tie-Rods work but will the outters also? Or am I stuck w/ SPL's?

    Think you're stuck with SPLs - much longer length than OEM outers.

      Why 'stuck w/ SPL'? What's wrong with them.
      I've been very pleased with the sets I've owned.

        They're expensive.

          Thats why I just went with Tein tie rods and didn't use the steering spacers. Though I will end up buying SPL outers for bumpsteer adjustment eventually.

            I agree, nothing wrong w/ the SPL's I would love to own a set, just can't afford them right now.

            So I've decided to go w/ S13 Inner's and Outter's w/ PBM 7mm Spacers (6mm is what Tein, CS,etc. offer)

            OEM, Cheap, and they have More threads than the S14's to compensate the use f a spacer...

              Just wanted to add that you specifically can NOT use Z32 outers. Taper angle is the same, but taper diameter is different. Basically you only get about 3-4mm of engagement into the spindle.

                They will work if you re-size the taper with a taper reamer.
                I bought mine from XKUT, pn#5902
                The Z32 outers look stock and actually correct some of the bump steer you get from lowering the car.

                  At that point why not just go SPL and dial in the bumpsteer exactly?

                  I never had good luck disassembling rubber boost tie rods after they got hot a few times from track days. Boot would always tear up and then I was stuck having to buy new OEM outers which got a bit expensive if I ever had to take the tie rods out.

                    Because they look stock.
                    I've never had a problem with one good whack on the spindle. But I rarely take them apart.
