Whiteline bumpsteer kits - actually back in stock?

Noticed on the whiteline site (both australia and us) that it's showing the kit's as in stock.


https://whitelineperformance.com/pro...435-ball-joint

http://www.whiteline.com.au/product_..._number=KCA435


I emailed back in the spring and they mentioned they were trying to have something to market for the fall, but I assumed it would be a new part number. Anyone know if they're actually in stock again?

Neither of the wholesale distributors I get whiteline from have any, or even have that part number in the system. Going to find out what the deal is with those now though.

E: yes, available again and in stock at whiteline usa.

I had this kit on my car, after a year or two the rubber boot seal did not hold up and there was some wear damage, so I went with Hardrace as a replacement.

I tried to order recently (it said in stock) and my order was automatically cancelled...

I kind of like the look of the similar parts by Hardrace. Looks like the US dealer doesn’t have 86 parts on their site. Ebay has some with expensive shipping to the US. Might be interested with a good seller here.

Someone on the 86 Track Cars FB posted pics showing they had it. Not officially listed but they said to call Whiteline directly

The hardrace parts are over double the cost, but if the whiteline ones aren't going to last it's probably money better spent.

Decided to order a couple supporting mods for the bumpsteer kit. Coilovers, LCAs, trailing arms, toe arms, endlinks, and swaybars.


Now... I will try and wait patiently for the parts to arrive.

Look what arrived today!

They honestly look higher quality than the whiteline tie rods I have. I think they probably are newer. Really excited to install these along with the other parts I ordered.

Wait, are these the originals or a re-designed part? I remember reading about them having issues and Whiteline discontinued them. Or at least that's what I thought.

It fixes the suspension geometry change from lowering your car. Car should feel more planted. And from what I understand, cars that are lower than 1" need it more.

I'm switching to coils and ordered the kit after a couple suggestions. And from watching a few youtube videos of what they do. Whiteline has a long one....
