    Pro-Line Aluminum Front Caster Blocks and Bearing Carrier Upgrade

    Here is the write up as promised. I am sure there are other ways of doing this. This is the way I did this mod.
    I hope this helps someone.

    You will need to make a small notch in the lower suspension arm. This is so the Pro-Line Caster Block will have the correct geometry.

    I also shaved a bit off of the caster block. I modified both in hopes that I would not weaken one too much.

    I used a longer screw and a nylon hex nut as a spacer to attach the upper A-arm.

    I also cut off 5 mil off of each end of the tie rod so fix the geometry of the bearing carriers. I think 3 mil off of each end would be better.

    The finished product. I took the Fury for a spin and it did great. Enjoy!

    Very interesting info!
    Thanks for sharing.

    Arrma has these blocks also in aluminum red anodized. But their availability is bad. So this is an interesting upgrade.

    I personally think more can be get out of the front steering system, if you want to race them.

    Low riding the Fury right now for road racing. I removed the Powerstroke shocks and modified the stock shocks by shortening the travel. Sitting nice and low now.

    Nice!

    I had to raise the body because the wheels run into the body...off road that is ;)

    Next upgrade would be springs to connect both front suspension and aft, in order to get even better cornering performance.

    Durango has them for their SCT. No idea if it is easy to add to our vehicles.

    I had to cut out more of the rear fender after raising it to the max. I think I will need to do more trimming also.

    So, I took another look at the modified JATO shocks I put together last year for the onroad oval track. Initially I didn't think they would fit, but after some minor tweaks, they are in! I still need to test them out on the track with this truck, but the initial test on the street are promising. I still think the tires stink though. Might get some Proline Street Fighters to throw on the bead locks. But, I really want some soft compounds.

    I actually shortened the travel on those via some spacers inside the shock. Having said that, I still don't think they would be long enough. :( The Powerstrokes are great though!

    LOL. I cringe at "low riders" as well. I just lowered it to race the onroad course. Off road suspension does fare very well on the concrete. :)
