    (604) T3 Advanced Strut Tube Spacers - top mount

    Giving away strut tube spacers from T3, decided to keep my TE72 near stock height ...can't imagine having my car any lower than it already is here in Vancouver...

    I'm running uncut TRDs in the front without modified strut tubes and TRDs in the back (with spacers to bring it back up as soon as i can find some.)

    If you're interested in trying them out they're all yours, you will definetly need cut springs or coilover set up so that you have enough rebound travel - uncut TRDs left me with very little rebound

    Just insured the car as motivation to finish my "build" so may find a few other goodies cleaning out the garage.

    Even for free, not much of a deal lol. I hate these things so much. I hate T3 garbage in general.
    Will you pay me $20 to take them?

    Make sure you get your rear end centered first try. Because it will seize up in a month lol.

    I have lots of t3 stuff. And to be honest it is perfectly fine.
    And I have had good customer service from them.
    Some of his parts are a little too general for my liking tho.

    blah

    I've had 4 links and panhard rods seize up completely in one season. Some can't be saved even with the wettest of penetrant soakings. He uses $8 carbon heims. No **** they go to crap.
    The RCA with the bolt centering rings machined in never fit and always break off. They should be drilled in and steel sleeved like every other jdm rca.
    The NRCA, same thing as rca, and the threads are quick machine cut and in the strut side and rip out or strip.
    Camber plate top hat bearing falling apart. Everyone knows this one.
    ****ty hardware. 1/2" bolts on everything he can to save a buck.

    Calling RCAs bump steer spacers.

    Don't even get me started on how ****ing retarded those advanced strut tube spacers are.

    And ugly. Thick cheap metal.

    t3 is hit or miss but gabe is really easy to contact and has great customer service, just come in with the expectation that things wont fit well. that being said, i bought a D garage panhard seized up after a month lol and the heim joint is noisy as ****. my t3 panhard is just as bad though

    nnnnnnnooooooooooooo lol

    I spent $25 on the 5/8 heims. I think $30 something for the 20mm.
    Stainless steel and Teflon lined.

    Should have just sprung for the $8 stuff I guess.

    I've had my DG 4 links in for 4 years. Noisy, so noisy, but no play. Panhard is still perfect.
