    I just resolved it myself this week by fixing the kit myself. He has not contacted me since he disapeared off of SCT.

    I had to nothc the inside of the lower arms to allow it to hit the bumps. Because his kit goes straight from the hinge to the center point, it leaves no area for adjustment in your alignment. The only to run it is all the way out. And even then I had to grind like hell on the mounts to make them not hit.

    Well haven't heard from Nate in a long time never got a dime from the guy so he still owes me the full 1400 :mad: I get no response from the guy any thing would be nice bad news is better than no news.

    That sucks man. I wish you the best.

    This seems to be one of those times when a Total Chaos or Camburg kit at an increased cost looks a lot better. I hope that others learn from this and dont keep buying what is the best deal at the time.

    I hope you get your money back and they make Nate pay your attorney fees too. Sorry for your troubles dude, I thought Nate would at least try to make an attempt.

    i can't say i've heard anything good about batch kits. lots of steering issues and the real question is... knowing the quality of the fabricator himself, would you trust the quality of his work...?
