A ball joint spiltter? :-)

If you want them, the top wishbones need to be adjustable without the need to remove them otherwise they are a pain, IMO.

Hi James

Modifications to original design (to clear standard dampers) have been made, but I will not be offering them until I have road tested them. I thought that my car would be running a long time ago and I don't want to have other people testing them for me :-)

Regards

Steve

For what its worth, I'm using Spyder adjustable wishbones with Spyders adjustable rubber bush set up (rather than rose joints)
They are as fiddly to set up as rose joints but I hope the ride will be sufficiently precise and smoother than rose joints.
I have a set of standard Spyder tubular adjustable front wishbones that I will be selling shortly because I ended up using a non standard length - I know..
