No nothing I have been waiting for this kit since 2007, there are less of us x-runner hardcore owners everyday I'll continue waiting for this bump steer kit ever comes I'm in LA Cali if any other xrunner member wants to meet up hit me up
The part that I freaked out over is the re drilling the spindles to match the angle of the tie rod endI made myself a kit several years ago and have updated the design a few times and yes it’s on Facebook in the xrunner group. Nobody wants to pay for a kit they want to find and buy the needed parts themselves. The tricky part was making a sleeve. The more recent design uses a replacement inner tie rod and a off the shelf everything, nothing custom.
That is great news I, never moved forward because of that, and just last night ordered this ->The GM style adapter stud has the same taper and is a direct fit. You may have used the ford style.

From what I have been told the taper/angle of the steering knuckle is not a perfect match for the taper/angle of the pinto or the GM adapters most people end up drilling out the knuckle to make it match perfectly. I just had the adapters machined up to be a perfect match, that way I don't have to worry about any weird wear or the knuckle and adapter coming loose after they seat themselves.Please explain close but not perfect. The only complaint anyone has ever had was the stud doesn’t completely bottom out in the steering arm. It’s not intended too.
