Any particular reason the TyrolSport Deadset locking collar kit is worth 100% more than ECS version? I realize the ECS kit is aluminum collara and OEM bolts compared to brass collars and ARP bolts for TyrolSPort...but $112 vs $225?
Pure DD. I've had some mild clunks commonly when pulling out of my garage for years and just never bothered to do anything about it. I recently decided to keep the car for a while longer so looking to address a few minor issues and refresh some bits and pieces. I ended up buying the ECS kit because I can't see how you could fuck this up without really trying.Different materials. Are you building a race car or is this your daily? That would drive my decision. I wouldn't hesitate to use the ECS kit, but I'm not running collars either.
You're not wrong. I fitted the TyrolSport kit on axle stands and at one point I wondered if the subframe would ever go back up again. I guess that's why VW fitted skinny bolts into big holes. Considerably easier and faster assembly. Same deal with some Hondas actually, most notably the S2000.It's a pita to get everything squared up since the kit is designed to get rid of the slop on the subframe, but it's doable.
