tcp g-bar

Theres 2 versions, G-link and G-bar. g-bar uses poly bushes and gl-link is a pivot-ball.

I went g-bar because Chris Alstons TCP guy recommended it was all i needed for street/strip and didnt seem worth the extra (at the time) to go g-link.

The diff housing is a fab9 also from Chris Alstons Chassisworks.

Pretty happy with the setup. My dad and I knocked it over on a week without a hoist just jacked up on stands and that included the fab9 and strange centre, axles, brakes etc. I think theres pics throughout my thread somewhere in the middle of all the waffle.

yep. everything mounts in exist locations except for 2 spots where you drill into the rail . The instructions are online if anyone wants more info. theres some install videos too.

Mods to the Fays2 model included some slight grinding on the top frame mounts and a heap of washer/shims for rear frame shoulder bolts. I realise shoulder bolt sizes are fairly coarse but the supplied arrangement looks a little substandard in my personal opinion.

Few other minor items that me and another mechanical engineer noted:
- Frame had an observable bow due to poor fab/welding methodology
- Frame ends could have been revised to improve rigidity
- Rod ends installed on bolts where a machine pin would provide a nicer bearing surface
- Nylock fasteners just captive on thread would have supplied next size up in most cases
- Instructions could be re-written greatly improving clarity

Bear in mind these are just possible refinements and overall I am happy with the kit and end result is very good.


Nassi - Not sure my fabrication skills are up to cage work just yet and it may take away from daily street use. I have already clocked up about 1100km on the new motor so she sees alot of use. Too much fun to drive now not to use at every opportunity,

Was just curious... no use doing any of that stuff to my car. Waste of time considering what it's used for.

Really can't see me taking it to the track with an auto in it.

So how did you decided where to place the roll center?

Or did you just place it to align with the roll center that the leaf springs dictate?


I will someday think of something clever to say.

I am happy to go out with you and have a sticky beak. Just get back to me when you want to go.

I also look forward to the comfort of being your passenger seat.
