Re: tqc/4000q susp&brake swap
I am going to go ahead a try and deter you from this swap. First, the
strut housing off the Ur-Q are not that easy to find and when you do find
them, you are going to pay some good money for them. I tried to find one
for my Ur-Q a while back and they were few and far between. Keith
Anderson was my supplier on this part and he got $300 for one USED one.
Max McDonald had one that was complete (hub, bearing, etc..) and he
Next you are going to, at least, need new ball joints because the ball
joints fit into Ur-Q sturts only. Your 4k ball joint will NOT work.
Then you are going to run into the problem that you are going to have
with having 5 lug in the front and 4 lug in the rear. I don't know that
this is a *problem*, but I wouldn't like it to much (who am I though?).
The reason for this is that, the Ur-Q front strut housing takes a larger
wheel bearing than the 4k, so that leads us to the fact that you are
going to need the 5 lug hub to fit into the larger bearing.
I am sure that there is something else that you are going to run into,
but I can't think of it now. Anything else I am missing?
