Exactly what he sadi out of the box, but my GTT can get sideways easily as well with the TCS off.

I am still quite undecided. I'm trying to picture how much of a flair this will require if i go with uppers over lowers.

Have no intention to go with both though. I calculated my wheel is roughly 22mm tucked right now due to camber at the top of the tire and if i take out 3 degrees of that it will be 17mm closer to the fender.

I take that back, I am running 15mm spacers out back. I think I might go with uppers in the rear no matter what. I need to calculate my front now but I do not know what the camber currently is.

/done getting his trig on for the night.

You will need the uppers and the toe as well if you have removed the HICAS setup.

Excuse my ignorance here but do the rear tie rods/lock bar not act as toe adjustment already?

Lockbar uses factory arms and toe adjustment.

The aftermarket arms on left, right side without lockbar part in middle should have toe adjustment on them.

so what you mean is yes, tie rods adjust toe.

You are going to want to use uppers. I think regardless of having upper/lowers the top will still push out.

Going to wait until next month and then order up some suspension components. Too busy buying bike parts and tires to work on the gtr.

I would stay with a solid style front upper. With hard use over time or one big hit you will ruin the adjustables. The problem with the gtr front end is the twisting force on the upper control arm. Solids take the abuse better but you will be replacing the bearings semi-regulary. Stock with cam bolts and bushings are good and proven but lack a lot of adjustability.

If you've maxed out your stock uppers with cam bolts I would opt for the cusco +5mm front uppers

I would stay away from the adjustable lowers. You would need adjustable everything in the front and a good knowledge of bumpsteer, kingpin axis and roll centre to get them working right.

Why would you want to pull in your wheels anyway? I would loose 1/2 inch of wheel width before reduce the front track width.

Hope that helps your decision.

I've got the bings.ca RUCA's and I have to say they're some of the nicest parts I've seen. VERY high quality. I can't comment on his other stuff, i've never owned any of it.

I did get some FUCA's from Braden @ JNS and they're the biggest pieces of crap I've ever owned. I ended up just replacing the bushings in my stock UCA's with some nismo ones. They're AMS-style but who knows who made them. The locking collars broke immediately.

(if anyone is interested I have an extra set of Nismo FUCA bushings, complete set to do both sides.)
