Do you have a 5 lug option?Yes.
Do I need a camber kit?No. Camber adjustment is a part of the KAIZENSPEED Rear Trailing Arm assembly and has 8 degrees of total adjustability.
I already have a staging brake handle…Good! This kit is designed to be used with hydraulic brakes and it will work with any hydraulic brake handle.
Can this kit work with my factory E-brake?No. The calipers included in the Rear Trailing Arm Kit only work with hydraulic brakes. They don't have a provision for e-brake cables.BUT, you can use any hydraulic e-brake such as the K-sport one that has a latch to keep the brake applied when the car is in the trailer or otherwise.
My car has drum brakes, will this fit?Yes, it will bolt up to disc brake or drum brake cars. *BUT if your car has factory drum brakes you’ll need to purchase hubs off of a disc-brake car. We sell the correct hubs or they can be purchased from any auto parts store or from a salvage yard (or off your buddies’ car). The kit needs the hub off of a car that had stock disc-brakes. It can be easily unbolted from your stock rear arms. Then your hub slides right on to your new KAIZENSPEED Rear Trailing Arms.
Can I use this kit for daily driving?We recommend that this kit be used for offroad use only and inspected regularly. In a racing environment all aspects of the car are inspected regularly for the utmost in safety.The Rear Trailing Arms are made from the highest quality components and processes. We use only TIG welding process, and every individual component is welded in a fixture to maintain tight tolerances. Each component of the KAIZENSPEED Rear Trailing Arm kit is designed for the highest strength to weigh ratio that we are capable of producing.
Can I use this kit for Road Racing?The kit was designed for an extended wheelbase for drag racing use only. It has not been tested and therefore is not endorsed for use in other forms of driving or racing. Please contact us to discuss further. Email: Reid@KAIZENSPEED.com
What about the lower control arm angle?The Rear Trailing Arms were designed to achieve a straight lower control arm (LCA) when the wheelbase was extended ¾”. It is possible to have standard wheelbase or extend the wheelbase as much as 2” beyond stock. This is accomplished by bushing deflection.This can also be accomplished with an LCA that has spherical bearings installed. We sell LCA’s that have spherical bearings in place of bushings.
Does this kit allow for a rear speed sensor?Yes, we have TWO DIFFERENT speed sensor options.Speed sensor option 1: We have a bracket that uses the factory ABS sensor and counts the teeth that are already a part of your ABS equipped rear-hub.Speed sensor option 2: We have a bracket that uses a Hall-Effect sensor and counts the back of the lug stud.
If I use the ABS sensor do I need a signal converter to input the signal to my ECU?This depends on what ECU you are using:Most modern ECU’s require a digital signal. The ABS sensor output is AC and will require a signal converter. We have used MSD signal converter part# 8509 with great success.
Does this work with Traction Control?Yes. Both sensor options work with traction control. If you are using Hondata Traction Control then you will need the ABS Sensor Bracket and an ABS sensor.If you are using an aftermarket ECU such as AEM, Motec, Haltech, or an NLR boost controller then you can use either the ABS or Hall-Effect bracket (sensor sold separately). *When using the he ABS Sensor with the above ECU’s you’ll need MSD signal converter part# 8509
