And how the fuck did your dumb-new-ass become a moderator? What in fuck's name does someone need to do to become a mod here? Looks like they'll let every swingin' dick-with-or-without-an-Xterra-who-hasn't-visited-the-joint-in-a-year-and-a-half have moderator status. WTF is up with that?

:p

For anyone interested in getting this back on topic, I had a couple comments.

I've had both steering systems...I had the SLR kit on my Frontier and wore out idler arm bushings with it about every 6 months - brass or plastic, it didn't matter. The good thing there was that the plastic ones were cheap from the dealership.

I also wore out the Calmini ones, but have received nothing but good service in getting a replacement. It sucks that others of you have waited so long. I know one of the issues Calmini has is having cores to replace bushings in. I sent my old one back right away when I got the replacement.

Something I haven't seen anyone post on is this: Installing a spherical bearing in the Idler arm to eliminate the bushings all together. That, to me, would be a helluva lot cheaper than going out and paying over a grand for an SLR system.

It would also be a permanent fix.

Also, even when that bushing did go bad on mine, the truck was far from being a 'death trap'. It did wander a bit on the road, but there's no way for it to come apart and fail completely.

I think that part is being exaggerated.

Sorry to interrupt your flamefest. Carry on.

Just like the Calmini Idler arms, I guess it all depends on which one you got.
Did you get one of the first kits SLR offered?
Maybe there were still issues with it?

My SLR Idler arm bushing (bronze) lasted almost 2 years without greasing it, or even touching it.
And it never actually let loose or anything, just made a loud clunk when turning.
Swapped it out, and good as new.
Replacement bushings were $60 shipped.
And received it in less than a week.

It was the 2nd kit SLR ever sold.

The brass bushings came later, but I found the OEM plastic ones held up just as well....

I wheeled the truck hard in the Arizona rocks....

Ok, one of the guys in NJAX bought one of the first kits with the plastic bushings then switched to the bronze ones. I dont believe he had any issues with his system. Of course now he is SASed so he doesnt have that problem anymore.

My SLR system is holding up really well even with the 35's now.
Pika's is holding up well with his 36's (Q78's).
So it must have been the first run of steering systems that may have had some issues.

Someone already did that....
While better than the original Calmini adler arm, it wasn't a permanent fix for me when I did it.
Scroll down to Axle\'s post where his diagrams who the fix was made with the bearing...
My problem was that the sleeve wore (not the bearings) causing play in the idler arm.

Eh.....I tried the brass bushings......but I have since gone back to the plastic ones on my SLR. Easy and cheap as all hell to replace.

Ah well....whatever works for ya. [Wave]
