I'm not sure why Elephant's website still says they're on back-order. Hoping to sell a few more bump steer kits perhaps. The uprights have been available since last October. You can find them at Carnewal's site: RS Wheel Carriers

Finished the install last night. Ended up getting RS uprights overnighted from Sunset but finding out the car already had GT2 uprights already (thanks to Rennlist Members) was a nice surprise.

Now I have a new set of RS Uprights and Bearings for sale.

Towing the car to Hergesheimer MotorSports this morning for Ride Height, Corner Balance, and Alignment.

Cant wait to have it back and drive it...

Curious, did you do anything to the rear lower control arm? RS bushing or complete replacement or?

Nice, I have similar set up - your will be amazed when you drive it.

Did you do these, they look exactly like factory RSR parts I bought but are NLA:

With all this investment, please don't forget the KT alignment when taken to Hergesheimer MotorSports.

Im very happy to see you decided to abandon the Elephant bump steer kit, and instead went with RS wheel carriers as part of your extensive upgrade!

True, but KT( I suppose it should now be just called T) still needs to be set because the toe still changes w/ bump and still greatly affects handling

In addition, at the ride height I see, the factory street KT tools are no longer going to be acceptable, the factory or aftermarket clone tool that hangs from the calipers in going to be necessary

I see, with the kinematic motion locked out with monoballs, it still sets the start point of the bump toe curve and they should at least be equal and ideally set to driver preference.

That is one cool tool, who makes that Bill?
