Lower arm hits toe arm on lock...
Hello,
Something is wrong with my friend's car ... He has all suspension prts except the coilovers from t3 and when he rotates the s.wheel toe arm hits the lower arms and because of this he can't even use second hole in his t3 knuckle to get extra lock... Cause if he use it, it will hit worse.

I add a photo, maybe something wrong about installation.
Thanks in advance ...

Mine does exactly the same but with stock LCA. Nothing wrong with the installation.

It's because of the oversized t3 rod end. Unfortunate but normal.

It looks like i've got the same setup and mine doesn't touch - it could be to do with your alignment settings perhaps.

I'll take a photo next week when I get my car back for you.

RACK may have spacers or fast rack. different angle that way. also i think that part can go little up and make room. BUT still it will near hit or hit.

Super86 - The OP might have more wheel / tire clearance than you.

I had the t3 tie rods / knuckles with stock control arms and didn't get contact, BUT I was using 15x7 +0 wheels with 195/50 tires and they would rub the body so I didn't get full rack travel (no rack spacers).

Thats normal, just notch the lower arms to get more space for the tie rod.

Hey, its taken a while, but here is the photo of mine on full lock. As you can see, theres quite a lot of clearance.

My specs are:
  • Power teering rack
  • T3 knuckles, with the bolt in the outermost hole
  • T3 outer tie rods
  • T3 lower arms
  • 3 degrees castor
