Alfter hitting a curb at a slow speed (180 at last second), the left .124" x 1.795" Inner Rear Pin on the rear left lower control arm bent big-time! It was connected to an RPM arm and a Fast Lane Machine 1 degree toe mount. The aluminum toe mount is jacked up, the RPM arm has a gouge in one of the holes, the turnbuckle was bent, and the screw for that shock mount on the FLM tower had its head popped off. The MIP C-CVD on this side was severely bent too. I have used these pins on control arms before and hit curbs at higher speeds with no bent pins or other damage. I forgot to say that my FLM tranny's motor mount plate is bent too, making it impossible to mount a pinion. It was a simple curb swipe, and the result was disastrous! I will probably put stock arms and pins back in. Apparently the RPM arm plastic is too beefy for the titanium pin. I'm quite disappointed at the build quality this time around. Another issue is that the frony outer pins interfere with the camber links, so washers must be used on the caster blocks so the astic on the links won't rub holes.
