Again, as much as I want a set of these I can't commit when you have not even tried them on a cb7. We don't even know if the UCA will fit up in the space. Considering these are made for lowering, and our OEM triangle shaped UCA hit / rub when lowered, verification is needed to confirm these work when lowered. Looking at the design I would also have some concerns over caster.

The end of the triangle will rub / bang when lowered. So I'm not sure how a larger square end will fit. And it would be impossible to make the area of rubbing larger to accommodate.

Count me in on this. Sounds much better than using EF/EK UCA's to correct my camber in the front. Too bad you don't have a discount for a test group.

They will work... just a matter if anything needs to be done... really don't have many options. Want it pretty low and cut window in shock tower which many people do in all the chassis. Just got to deal with what the chassis gives you. There is no logicial option that will be strong to get it to clear when pot hole slamming...

True except our cars hit the top of shock tower body AND rub on the inside / side. One can cut and cap the top but no way you are cutting the side of the shock tower body out of the car to get around rubbing.

Need to tub it, broooo.

No, but seriously, how wide is the tire that's rubbing the tower? Stock or Illest-spec? Because if the CB is like the S2000 and just can't do big wheels, it's the fenders that need modifying so you can use a lower offset and grow out rather than fruitlessly trying to tuck more rubber under the stock metal.

I didn't mean the tire rubbing, I meant the UCA.
