Hi mate, I'm gonna dismantle a rhd column coupler and determine if it's the same, if so I'll be ordering quite a few from you! Whats the turn around from order to delivery?

I'm pretty sure it is the same, as I picked up a good condition OEM coupler from one of the NZ guys for research and developing these U-Joints and I am making an assumption that his car is RHD, but the coupler is the same as the USDM cars. If you want to PM me about it with pictures to confirm this when you get it taken apart I should be able to help you out, and am happy to do so.

I am hoping to find out for sure about turn around time tomorrow. My plan was to order 10 more for now and see where the demand for them goes from there. If you will need several of these, I will likely need to place a separate specific order with the manufacturer just for you. So, PM me with your details when you are ready and we can work it out from there.

Thank You for your support and interest.

I'm sorry you missed the first run buddy. Not to worry though, I will have some more ready in the next couple of weeks, after I get back from vacation on the 8th of Dec. Keep an eye out after that point.

I was late to this too, can't wait to order one soon and find out what it feels like to actually steer my car instead of riding asphalt waves!

Ok guys and gals,

I am home from vacation and just got off the phone about these and I hope to have 10 more by the end of the week. I will post them for sale again, when I have them in hand. Until then, save your $ if you want one and keep an eye on this thread.

LOL, Thanks Rob.

Rex, there is no "waiting list", it is simply a matter of when I have them in stock, they are for sale. At that time, they are first 10 (or however many pieces I get) to pay are the people who get them on that run. I am sorry I can't do more than that, but these things are pretty expensive, and to drop $2k every run and hope that they all sell would be foolish on my part. So at this point, I plan to keep my end of the arrangement at $1k or less out of my pocket, per run. That way, if they sit on the shelf for a bit, I can manage.

Keep an eye on this thread towards the end of the week. I should have some (I hope) by Friday.

It's worth it and not swerve when you change lanes. That's the last part I need to have my steering back to normal

For me it is more like cruising in a yacht.
Kind of drifting along. Spin the wheel till it starts to turn.
With the Eventual counter spin. That's just to keep it in the lane.

Would a worn coupler cause the steering to shake when cruising straight? I know my car needs this its unfortunate that they finally are finished when Im working 1 day a week :(

probably not. that might be from warped rotors grabbing the pads. bad wheel bearings, or front wheels might have tossed a wheel weight and need to be balanced again. on a far stretch bent front rim or bad worn tire
