Castor Rods/extensions

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Went to a tyre place the other day for an alignment an turns out they weren't able to align them because theres no more extension left in the castor rods. He was talking about getting something like castor rod extenders.

There for a Skyline r33 GTS 1993.

Any help relating to castor rods would be much help.

You can get replacement adjustable castor rods. You may be able to get eccentric bushes which will give you a little (probably not enough) adjustment. I don't see how you could extend the stock castor rod (in a way that would pass any inspection).

there is no adjustment at all in standard castor rods so in most alingments with standard gear it's simply measure and move on. if you need to adjust castor you need eccentric/offset bushes which give some small adjustment or buy some adjustable length arms.

in fact from standard you cannot adjust front castor, you cannot adjust front camber, you can adjust front toe, you can adjust rear camber (but only marginally) and you cannot adjust rear traction rod length, you can adjust rear toe. so to sum up on a standrd skyline all you can adjust is F+R toe and rear camber (a little bit).
