Whiteline KCA334 washer?

Recommended Posts

For those with the Whiteline KCA334 installed on their vehicles, are the washers installed under the urethane thrust washer?

 

I ask because I inspected the install and noticed that they are not present. Also read that some KCA334 kits did not come with them.

No washer present. I also remember that there were no large washers that came with the kit prior to installation.

 

My poor Cusco braces are filthy.

Whiteline made a running change sometime earlier this year to add those washers. So if you bought old inventory you may have gotten the kit w/o the washers.

I contacted them, they're going to mail to me. Fast response to address my concern, thats how I like my customer service.

 

Nice, that's why we have been using Whiteline as a customer since 1998 and signed on to become a Whiteline Performance Center. Great products and stand behind them!

Understood.

 

Spoke to the installer and he mentioned that from their experiences with customer cars, the oversized washers were unnecessary for the cars with CUSCO front lower-arm braces. The CUSCO plates that replace the OEM units provide more bearing surface area.

 

I notified him that I would still like the washers.

I'm picking up some heavy-duty washers and will install them next weekend.

 

Off-topic, but does anyone know the part number for the locking nuts that are used for the front LCA to crossmember bolts? The original lock nuts come loose after a few days of driving. Torqued to 80 ft-lbs. The recommended torque is ~70 ft-lbs. I tried searching here, and on Fred Beans Parts as well as Subaruonlineparts.

I just installed the kit last weekend and mine DID come with the washers however, the instructions I received with the kit did NOT address them being in there. I called Mike at Infamous where I bought them, and we looked online and the "new" instructions have a footnote regarding the washers and that they go on the bottom before the triangle bracket. I would think that you could just go to Fastenal or something and find a washer big/thick enough to be close.

Thanks for the heads up on this. I contacted Whiteline as my kit was also void of the washers. Cheers

 

Update: whiteline had the washers to me in 3 days and included a lanyard for the trouble. A+... already installed.

bumping an old thread i know but same happened to me recently i got the washers but no mention of a need for them in the instructions so my mechanic did not install them. Ill have to go back and get them fitted or do so myself. Anyone have a picture of them fitted?with the washers on the bottom?
