    Hey guys I need the measurement from the center of the bolt hole to the very tip of the zirk fitting. I need to know if it will clear my turbo piping.


    Outlined in yellow, I am concerned with the pass side only.

    Thank you very much, now I just need to measure and see if the nut/zirk area is going to touch the turbo piping. If it does I may have to go to a heim ended control arm to cut down the distance.

    well the zerk would gain you 3/8" in the front and 5/8" in the rear we could make a set with the zerks on the top of the bushing but you would not be able to reverse the offset cross shaft.
    I also have some cross shafts that are 3/4 shorter on each end that I could make a custom set with.

    Well I def will have to remove the zirk that points to the front of the car to gain full clearance. Will this be a problem ? can I grease first then take it off and plug it ?

    well to give you the most clearance I would make you a set with the other cross shafts that are a bit shorter on the ends and put zerks on the bushing sleeves this way you would gain about 1" total
