    Suppose that means they are more spendy than the Muellerized Olins I plan to get over winter...

    No idea, I don't shop for parts I can't afford. I think foot in the door Ohlins start at $2.5k, I'm sure Mueller Ohlins carry a bigger price tag.

    They are the same shocks except that the springs are different and they include the mounting brackets which I had to buy separately from SCE. Mine are Ohlins Road & Track's. I'm planning to tune them myself and maybe get some local help in Minnesota.

    If they're Evo Ohlins they're likely Muellerized Ohlins. Unless someone else was also doing that conversion, but I seriously doubt it.

    Man I wish someone else bought the Mueller Ohlins before me...I spent ALOT more than what's advertised on their website. Sometimes being 1st ISN'T better. Thanks for the write up Getto! Been looking for a bump steer solution. Is anyone else concerned about the length of the spacer on the tie rod side? For us road racers with big tires I'm starting to really question the safety of some of our stock components. With the forces generated laterally I'm wondering if that steering knuckle arm is beefy enough to handle the load.

    Holy ish! That is way less than what they had quoted me too. Pretty f'n cheap for a set of Ohlins coilovers.

    so have anyone made any more of this ? found som interesting stuff on the web

    3kgt knuckle on galant vr4
    http://www.galantvr4.org/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Number=1021073&page=&view=&sb=5&o=&fpart=6&vc=1

    and evo x knuckle on 3kgt
    https://www.google.com/search?clien...9j0i10i19j0i22i30i19j33i160j33i21.r-G0NWkaJJQ

    balljoint change kit .
    http://chromedecu.org/?product=evox-brake-kit-for-a-3000gt

    if i am not completly lost this should make it possible to mount the evo x knuckle and brakes on a 1g (or any evo x big brake kit)also getting better bearings and a little bit rollcenter adjustment (evox knuckle looks best to me) .

    I was going to do the evo X knuckles on my 1g TSI a couple years ago, I abandoned the project when I stripped out third gear in the trans and decided to partout my 1g out and focus on my vr4.
    (I still have the evo x knuckles/dust shields if your interested in them).

    The biggest issue you're going to run into is sourcing out the correct axle length and spline count. i'm pretty sure i was able to find some axles that were worth trying. i'll try to find that information when i clean out my office tomorrow, If i find it, I'll post it.

    To be completly honest i havent thought so mutch abaout the axle problem yet, but you are completly right. i figured the best way would be to use as mutch evo as possible and to have a company like driveshaftshop make a set of axles, but if there is something that fits boot on that would be even better!
    please post again if you find anything.

    also might be interested in the knuckles depending on price and if you would ship then sence i am located in sweden...you can pm me about this .

    best regards
