Hey -

Don't be insulting the Blue Man Group by associating them in any way with Calmini.

BMG rocks.

I have never been one to censor peoples thoughts about one vendor or another.

However since this post is not really here to start a conversation with Calmini I have moved it to the ALR.

WOOOOWWW there are sooo many other thread here on XOC that are far far worse than this, yet they stay put.

good job admin, good job [ThumbsUp] or something.

I mean, he never said it was to start a conversation with Calmini, he posted a picture of him being pissed off at their products and you move it to ALR?

actually it was directly addressed to Calmini. The title of this thread is "Thanks CALMINI."

He goes on to tell Calmini :

Ya' know, I said that when I was looking at 3" suspension lifts 2 years ago. I said "why should I buy SLR if Calmini is cheaper?"

Yeah, well I learned my lesson the HARD way. Shitty unsafe steering system, crappy rusting T-bars that sag like my grandma's titties, UCA's that won't align in to spec because they wern't designed correctly, shackles that snap grade 8 bolts because they were desinged as a split unit vs. a solid unit like others, leaf springs that mis-aling themselves and have lost most lift, I could go on and on and on.....[/b]
hey, i feel your pain, but i think you missed the point. what im saying is if the slr 3" lift is the same in cost as the calmini SAS, why the fuck would i spend the same money to remain IFS?

I don't really have a problem at this point with putting a Calmini SAS kit on my Xterra...for one reason, it's lack of options for a bolt on, ready to go kit. When someone puts out something cheaper, I'm sure others will get it, evaluate it, and make recommendations based on its quality and their experience with said "option for another SAS kit". I know of one guy that had a problem with the trac bar shearing off, and it caused him to roll his Frontier about 7 times on the highway...this is the same guy that's doing the swap for me, and I'm pretty sure he knows what to look for now from experience. He's done about 5 SAS projects now using Calmini's kit...those trucks are still shiny side up today.

There are things I'm not using from Calmini though because of repeated statements of disappointment in those products (i.e. rear springs packs, and front driveshaft). The front driveshaft I can have made for cheaper locally, and the leaf packs I have on my X now, which are custom, are going to get SOA'd to add the lift in the back. So, the back half of my X will be mostly SLR and Alcan, while the front half will have just the things it NEEDS from Calmini to make the SAS possible. I'm not going to wait for something else to come on the market...quite honestly, we don't know when that's going to happen and I'm in a place financially where it makes sense to do the SAS in January...who knows where I'll be months or years down the road...things change, and I'm not sure I'll have the money or time to spare at that point.

From what I've seen and heard it would be a good idea to put that bolt in double sheer. SLR has actually done one such modification on a truck for a young lady that was concerned about that bolt backing out.

(Hey, check out those welds!) laugh

I'll give you [ThumbsUp] [ThumbsUp] for the welds but a double [ThumbsDown] [ThumbsDown] for the safety wire job. That has got to be one of the worst I've ever seen. Would never fly in the Air Force.

Calmini has not posted on this board in a very long time. I doubt that they would start back up by responding to a thread showing someone flipping off their stuff and posted in such a way to be nothing more than a slap in the face.

So for those of you bitching that it got moved to the ALR. Try posting something similar in fashion about 4x4parts or similar board and see how fast the post disappears and or you get banned.

Sure, why would Calmini need to stand behind their products. They sell enough to not have to care what the customers think.

It has huh? Hmmm I havn't seen it. I consider it performing a service to those who are unfortunate enough to think that cheaper is better. [Wave]

Must be working on something because it's not my headers that I ordered 3 months ago! Good thing I don't have the money to put them in yet or I'd come unglued! eek

I think its because the discussion was not that heated, and the name calling in frustration that would normally occur when one side would not concede a point was not happening.

It really didn't even need to be moved...still pretty tame and under control, even here.

It wasn't a thread that was intended for the ALR, but since this is a last resort stop loss type of thread depository, it ended up here.
