(Whiteline) Anti Lift Kit requiring certification?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

So I recently installed a Whiteline anti lift kit. Part of the kit comes with spacers to bring the front U-shaped subframe down a bit to clear the new mounts.

The WOF place I went to just failed me on that saying that it is a cert requirement.

Just wanting to confirm/enquire if anyone has had issues before.

Does spacing the u shaped thingy actually effect geometry? I thought it was just a brace thing.

As per pm I passed a cert with 10mm spacers on my LCA bushes. I raised it but he said it wouldnt matter and didnt note it. They are black and wouldnt know they were there unless you were looking for them tho.

its not the subframe

I know its not the subframe.. even though the work shop manual refers to it as such.

I mentioned it doesn\'t really affect the structure of the car too much. It\'s there to keep some countries with strict crash ratings happy.

The 2 guys I talked to today seem to think its structural.. =\

Will he pass you if you take the frame off?

How does it handle now Im picking youve taken it for a spin?

have got some work to do, so I haven\'t really taken off the frame yet.

Been reading on NASIOC,and some say it does make a difference..

Can\'t say for sure yet.

I might go to a different place, as the one i went to first reckons its structural, and will probably fail me for taking it off =\

Not structural, but it does make the front end of the car really floaty. V7 sti has one, at least the wagons do.

But a WOF inspector will note that something is missing in spot given the bolts.

Removing is not an option. :(

Any recommendations for WOF places on the Shore?

that front u bar isn\'t structural, but it does stiffen up the front end. remove in favor of a k brace type thing, or notch the frame, or find a wof inspector who will pass it. i had to get a wof while i was sourcing my alloy arm bits, they had no problem with it. as stated, ymmv.

Yeah, found a WOF place that had raised some questions, but we\'re happy enough the the quality of the kit to issue me a WOF

Had a few recommendations around washers and bolt strength and recommended me to get it certified still.
