newer generations of Nissans and Infiniti plus other manufacturers have their spindles in cast aluminium at least with Toyota we are lucky that ball joint and steering lever are integrated as one part unlike Nissan which is integrated into the spindle! strength-wise I assume it holds enough, the thing is those aluminium steering shortening levers are thicker leading to more RCA plus personal preference of steel over aluminium, it was in the old days when ae86 owners would swap-in the power assisted steering ball joint to gain the same effect we are talking about here

yeah and the 2IS and 3IS have aluminum spindles too. you are talking about a spindle while im talking about a lower balljoint and steering assembly.

this is incorrect. the spindle on the 1is is removable from the lower balljoint and steering assembly.

probably it's different naming causing confusion, 1st picture is MK1 IS300 spindle (could be named as axle or hub-carrier etc)
the second is the ball joint with -lets call it steering lever- where the outer tie rod is linked to
the 3rd is Nissan 370Z spindle where it's made from aluminium with steel inserts, lower ball joint sits on the lower arm now the steering lever is integrated into the spindle, so if we wanted higher steering and quicker steering angle we would need a custom made spindle or if some one is mad enough he would cut and weld!
I'm confident that you already know this mesoo and I never wanted to drift the subject away, it could be just different naming!
Cheers

Just ordered coils yesterday. They should be here mid next week. Tomorrow I am going down to Xcessive to put up an angle kit. Will post pictures when I get it all installed. Should be all together once my coils arrive. Going with the standard knuckles, gs300 tie rod ends, and lower ball joints. Im so stoked it get it all on!
