With some of the best suspension talent in the industry, we have been designing, manufacturing (not just sourcing imports / re-labeling). This allowing total control over quality and also rapid / constant design improvements.
It’s no wonder all the major innovative design breakthroughs have been developed by k-mac.com. In all out competition racing results speak for themselves….Situations where race safety scrutineers insist (for strength and reliability) that only k-mac.com adjuster kits are allowed to be used.
*SEE BELOW, THE “6” BASIC VEHICLE SUSPENSIONS AND THE k-mac.com INNOVATIVE PATENTED DESIGNS THAT HAVE SET NEW STANDARDS FOR STRENGTH, RANGE / EASE OF ADJUSTMENT AND INSTALLATION.
Virtually all today’s Autos (because of cost cutting and the ever increasing speed of OEM assembly lines) only have “Toe” in / “Toe” out – fine tuning wheel adjustment from the straight ahead position. Trying to resolve costly, premature edge tire wear by excess adjustment only alters wear position and actually increases overall wear rate!
Besides adjusting Toe – the other suggested procedure is to wear down the other edge by rotating tires!
We saw the need therefore to reinstate “FULL FRONT AND REAR ALIGNMENT” … TO MEAN WHAT IT SAYS (fixing it right the 1st time).
No more repeated, ongoing trips to dealers, alignment shops or constantly changing tire brands.
CAMBER – Essential to change “tire contact angle”. A proper solution to allow more even tire wear and traction.
CASTER – Correctly resolving steering pull, improving hi-speed directional control, steering response and reducing dive / lift under brake and acceleration.
“Strut” Adjusters – Fast/Precise from engine bay.
“Bush” Adjusters – Fast/Precise (single wrench) at same time replacing highest-wearing bushings.
Both designs allow adjustment accurately (under load) direct on alignment rack.
All k-mac.com kits are supplied with instructions and bush extraction / insertion tubes where required.
“Ongoing” adjustment capability for varying individual driving conditions owners can experience….
Altering height, load carrying, sagged suspension, high cambered roads, fitting wide profile tires/wheels, curb knock damage or adjusting for performance driving / reducing understeer on Race days – allowing to go deeper into the corners with increased traction and braking response.
k-mac.com kits are all bolt-on, no modifications required. Both the front replacement top strut mounts and bushing kits are precisely Camber and Caster adjustable. Bushings have twice the load bearing area of parts from the OEM and at the same time replace the highest-wearing bushes. Also importantly they are 2-axis / self-aligning without the OEM air voids resulting in improved braking and steering response.
Most “aftermarket” bushes only delete the air voids – which can prevent today’s vehicles’ multi link / angled suspension arms travelling through their required arcs, causing undue harshness, binding / locking up and lead to “even more” wheel hop / loss of traction.
FOR REAR SUSPENSION ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE AVAILABLE is adjustable Camber arms. We do not manufacture these as they replace the top not bottom arms. These are difficult to access, adjust and to resolve premature inner edge tire wear need to move the top of tire outwards, reducing the all-important clearance to outer fender. While the k-mac.com design is easily accessible (precise single wrench adjustment) and adjusted accurately (under load) direct on the alignment rack. Also with k-mac.com an “extra Toe” adjustment is included to compensate for this new Camber facility.
