Talking

Discard prior information in the other thread. I just pulled up the info and this is a quick overview. I'm at work so im looking at the actual screen in SI.

Bulletin # 06-03-08-001B (6/16/06) Availability of Steering Knuckles for Comp. Use

This bulletin is being updated to add models and model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 06-03-08-001A (Section 03 - Suspension).

05-07 Chevy Cobalt
05-07 Pontiac Pursuit
04-07 Ion, Ion Redline

This is to advise owners who intend to use their vehicles for competitive driving, of the availability of alternate steering knuckles, and to provide recommended alignment specifications for those owners who use their vehicles for competitive driving. These steering knuckles are available through GM service parts and are suggested for use on the Cobalt (Pursuit)/ION Redline. Refer to the Parts Information below for ordering instructions.

The following alignment settings provide for even tire wear in competitive driving.

Please use the following alignment specifications for competitive driving only:

Camber
Front
-1.5 .75 deg.

Rear
-1.5 .75 deg.

Caster
Front
3.65 .75 deg.

Toe
Front
.20 .5 deg.

Rear
.25 .5 deg.


Part # 88958710 LH Knuckle
88958711 RH Knuckle

There it is. GET EM!!! This is the updated bulletin. Let me know if you need anything else and I'll keep an eye out for any more updates!

So Sp00n, if these knuckles will work on our car, why wouldn't the control arms I posted yesterday work?

what about the mounting locations (on the a-arms)? if they ar the same then you could use them...BUT.... if they are longer, you gotta get longer (stronger) axles

Stock: the Technical Service Bulletin# 06-06-04-051 regarding engine recalibration (i.e. an ECU reflash) of the Z0K Solstice
and Cobalt SS is not legal for Stock category use since it is specified for competition purposes and thus does not meet the requirements
of sections 13.0, 12.4, and 3.8.A (ref. 06-337).
The competition-only steering knuckles for the Cobalt, G5, and ION, as specified in Service Information Document #1864485,
also do not meet the requirements of the Stock category (ref. 03-363).

This is also useful to know... this is for solo2 scca. basically you can have, but you cannot use in stock class...
