AWD idlers upgrade

Postby SainT [OP] » October 14th 2020, 7:20am

Hi guys!
After I read the topic about rack and pinion conversion -thoughts about didnt let me be calm ) cause i hate stock idlers so much!
Cause they die every 5k km
Here where I live (Russia ) when i bought new idler -i should pay the price of idler + shipping from US
And its very expensive for me cause shipping by airplane cost 13+ dollars per KG
1 MOOG idler cost near 100 bucks for me
Here is my invention in astro idlers )
Now i got more 15k with it in my steering and it tight as new
And spare parts 2 bearings 6202 and 4 bearings 6201
