Saika: 2012 Track Slut

Got the coilover stripped down and sent to a shop to get it reinforced.

While on one hand I agree. But if it can't be welded 100% as well as it originally was, you're going to hurt yourself in the long run. If your car isn't consistent, you can't be consistent. *cough* steering rack *cough*

FYI I figured out the steering slack issue. My spindle on the right side is banana shaped. That's why the bearings would not seat properly and the hub shakes. I need a new spindle as well. The shop that is fixing the coilover is going to make a metal sleeve to slide over the current damaged tube to create a thicker and stronger tube. It's the same guy that made my extended control arms and they held up well during the wreck.

Replace the spindle; it is already structurally compromised.

I have no idea what your last sentence means at all. I even googled it.
