After fitting the new CV , I checked out the angle when on full lock , looks to be excessive the rear stops do nothing ,
I will see if I can make some to reduce the steering lock a bit , I can live with a bit less turning circle if I have to .

I have had enough of these buggered CV's

Hi Jack I'd be interested in the outcome and how much lock you loose. I'll remember about the full lock
next time i'm in the bush.


Cheers

Can you post a pic?

I still reckon getting chromoly cv's will be a vast improvement.

The size don't particularly matter it's the materials strength.

Also can't see the diff bein 20mm bsck tht big of s probably. Cv's are Ment to move around thts what they are designed for.
If I break one I'm getting stronger ones made

If the geometry is wrong or too much angle when on full lock you might find all you are doing is blowing up even more expensive CV's, chrome moly is not the answer for everything, I'd be looking for someone who can make a cv that can handle a bit more angle myself.

gmax , mate sorry but you just don't get it , you can't bend em that far , something just has to break

As Danno said get someone to make a CV that can take a greater angle , who might that be and how much would it cost , I have no idea but at a guess a fair bit .

Believe me when I thought it was just a case of getting a stronger / chromoly cv , I rang every place in Melbourne plus a couple in NSW , no one had them or wanted to know about making one ,

I even emailed that place in the USA , their reply was ( we could have a look , got any pic's ) that's it 8 word reply .

Trying to find someone design and manufacture one that can take a greater angle , good luck .

gmax you are more than welcome to try , if you are successful , name ya price , I will have 2 .

Go 4 it .

Well I'm hoping less lock will do the trick ,

Flats Tk is a bloody easy track been up and down it countless times , you should of seen it 25years ago before all the hard bit were dozed out of it , same goes for every track now , they are all easy in the dry

Did you ever see Trig Tk before the 12 switch backs were put it , straight up , ruts 3ft deep , used to drive winch all of them .

Steepest track now is probably Spud Spur , A mate and I spent 4 hours winching my Hilux up it in the bloody dark one night , it was wet

I have driven the Dmax up Spud 2 times dry , no problem , it's mostly straight up , no full lock turns .

I would like to get that " I venture " mob up in some real 4x4 country , they stuff around on beaches and that Training Park , West of Melbourne .

I'd also be interested in any stop lock mod pictures - mine is going to see some action in the next few weeks - in the mean time, when I'm not on tarmac I'm holding my breath on turns ;-)
