Hey fellas

Just fitted some real chunky castor rods and was just wondering what brand they are.

They look to be real top quality too with good pillowball joints, rubber boots and are super fat compared to others I've seen like Tein, JIC, etc.

They were originally imported by Japanese Motorsport so definitely some sort of Jap brand.

Heres a pic:

That's what I was thinking. But just faded.


Here's a pic of Kazama rods I found.

The boys are correct. They are kazama.

They are the best castor rods on the market IMO

uras and kazama are the same unit just different colour.

I prefer them over cusco, but thats just personal preference

Funnily enough, Kazama are quite cheap to buy in Japan

I dunno why you keep telling people this. Cusco arms are nothing like kazama. Ive seen them both in the flesh and they are completely different construction.
I have a set or uras in my cefiro and kazama in my sil80 and they are identical.

He probably means the rear camber and toe arms. They are identical even down to the tooling marks on the arms.

I've never had the castor rods side by side though.
