Default compbrake TCA's badly made

Bought some compbrake tca's but the caster is way off 3.5degrees left and 4.2 on the right. The balljoint of the tca on the right sits 1 inch more forward than the left one.

Now iv'e mounted rose joints on the tca's instead of the rubber(normal) ends. And the balljoint sits 1/2inch more backward. But still got 1/2inch diffrence because compbrake didn't aligned the tca's before they welded them.


Iv'e meassured between the front crossmember and rearbeam crossed and straightline forward. No diffrence in that. Also did it with the plates on the ARB.
Also no diffrence meassured. So the subframe and ARB are on the right spot.

Anyone else had this problem with compbrake tca's?

No issues.
Had 2 sets, for 2wd and 3dr hubs.

Most likely more to do with bushes and ARB, no standard cossie with have the same caster either side

The adj TCAs on GGR website also look identical, and I wouldn't be supprised if they aren't supplied by Compbrake.

i use them on a xr4i. caster was always spot on exactly the same left and right. And with this stuff on the wheel sits 1.5cm more forward then the other.

changed the normal ends for rosejoints and that took out half an inch!
