Thanks for the reply. The present solution involves sending the correct 880 ball joints and new steering arms/knuckles to Rare Parts in Stockton CA, where they are machining and pressing bushings as you have done. Fortunatly, the arms are the same length as the 880's. An interesting side note: it looks like due to the separted design of the upper/lower knuckles/spindle/arms that negative camber can be increase via machinined spacers, potentially enhancing road stability. By doing so, the scrub patch would be moved however (not good). But, it would only move back to where the 880's was to begin with. Lets see how well it works. I am very interested in any ideas about furthering road handling by design.
