Looks much beefier. But it still looks like you can only adjust the camber in half turns of the heim joints by unbolting them from the frame. Would be nice if the camber could be adjusted without unbolting the heim from the frame.

. . . Think this will retrofit to an earlier Gen II ?

That's one of the highlights, it will bolt onto both GenI and GenII cars. Order one for you?

... at least let me get my build finished initially first!

Not so fast, grasshopper, we were thinking of you.

The upper control arm has an adjuster screw on it to allow for infinite adjustment. The front lower arm also had an adjuster built into it so the toe also has infinite adjustment. The picture shows the components of the upper arm - not the finished pieces but should be enough that you will get the concept. The biggest nut is to lock the adjuster. The next smallest one is the adjuster that screws into the control arm and the outer rod end screws into it. Last nut is to lock the rod end in place.  Loosen the nuts and you can adjust toe and camber by turning the center adjuster. Don't have to take anything apart and you can adjust it as precisely as you want.

Been down that road with the Half Turn setup - didn't want to repeat that.

Yet another teaser.  The new Hurricane IRS will accept both pin drive and 15" wheels, with a working parking brake!
