Looks good man Impressive list of parts. She will ride like a caddy after this.


on a side note: that KOR a-arm spacer looks subpar on finish. Welding splatter looks horrible, and shows a lack of detail oriented I'm sure the part will be awesome but i would expect more from a company like that.

That sounds awesome. At least he will acknowledge that there was an issue and take care of it. If I were you I would pry just let it roll but it is just good customer service to make an offer like that. Good work KOR

SO i started sunday at around 7Pm and Became Victorious at 12AM over that #@%$$%%^$ Rear Joint.



I used a wire wheel and got about 90% of the surface rust off it. then sprayed it with some rubberized undercoat.

Factory loctite is a pain but nothing a hammer on the wrench cant break loose for ya

used about 1/4 can of kroil under there to help keep the rust dust down. while wrenchin

Ive learned something today Don't buy from KOR apparently this GD DAMN spacer is the biggest waste of money ive ever spent the @$%#@%@# holes don't line up You can get the two back bolts in and not the front.

OR you can put the front in and Not the two back ones.

So now because of this inferior assembly Im going to have to drill out the GD Holes So i can Have SOME wiggle Room to hopefully get that 3rd bolt started Serious setback Bull****!

That sucks. Generally speaking they make a good product, but I too have had fitment issues with one of their products and they refused to do anything about. Their "solution" was that I replace another part so that it would fit.

You said they'd offered to replace it at no charge, right? Well, I'd call them back and make them be good on their word. If it's an inferior production of a good part, then you deserve the quality part you paid for. They might be going through growing pains, but that doesn't excuse inferior quality control.
