The original stub axles for the wheel suspension are often no longer available for older vehicles. In the tuning area, so-called Steering knuckle conversion kits Remedy created. If original parts are not available or have to be bought too expensively, specific kits can make it possible to use non-model steering knuckles on the vehicle. How the kits work exactly and what to consider when purchasing is explained below.
Steering knuckle conversion kit - weight savings and other advantages
A steering knuckle conversion kit enables the use of other model steering knuckles on the car. For example, the steering knuckle of a BMW E36 can be installed on the predecessor (E30) with the appropriate conversion kit. Depending on the model and manufacturer, the kits can be designed in such a way that the manufacturer's specifications, for example for the bearing journals, are precisely adhered to. This guarantees optimal functionality and a long service life for all moving parts. Such a kit should be designed to be able to be installed using the OEM wishbone bearings (lollipops). If the kit is precisely manufactured, it will place the wheel perfectly in the center of the wheel arch. This means you can do without eccentric or adjustable wishbones. The articles are even available in variants that can lead to minimal weight reduction, as they are often lighter than the OEM variants.
