Announcements

Over the last couple years the priorities in my life have changed. Had Matrix Garage grown big enough to hire enough employees and leave them to running it while I pursued other things I would have happily taken that route but it has generally stayed just big enough to keep me working overtime. 
I have decided to start focusing my carreer and passions elsewhere and that means that supporting the AW, AE, 4A and related communities has had to be moved much lower on the priority list. I have decided to keep the store up to provide parts that only we offer, or other things that are hard to come by elsewhere. You will notice many big name, readily available products have been taken down and we will continue to do so. It's just not worth our time trying to compete with the big corporations selling at cutthroat prices and it just takes up more of my time. 
I will try to keep providing those parts that we make or that we have developed and sell as a service to the community but understand that now this is something I do in my spare time because I don't want to leave people hanging. 
I try to make shipments and process orders at least twice a week. If you want Amazon next day shipping buy from Amazon. I will do my best to keep order time and customer service at a reasonable level but have some understanding. I am not making money on this and it takes away from my other work and other issues that are very important to me right now. 
I have always wanted to make our designs and other information open source and available to the community but to do so properly would take a lot of time making sure that models and drawings were complete, accurate, or properly described. To go through everything and make sure it was something that I felt comfortable releasing to the community. I would love to find someone who was willing to help me do this. Someone in engineering school or passionate about this to help go through 3D scans, CAD designs, and information to prepare it. If you are interested feel free to email me. 


 

 


 

Matrix Garage rear tie rod assembly and adjustement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Installation

MK1a and MK1b use the same adjusters. The inner forged receiver has longer threads so this is where we make up the difference in length between the two. To do this the MK1a will start threaded all the way out and the MK1b will start threaded all the way in.

Installation and adjustment should be done by a qualified professional.

You should have recived instructions with images and warranty information with your tie rods. If you didn't please contact us. 
I will try to get images uploaded here as soon as I get a chance. 

 

MK1a
Completely unthread the inner and outer joint and then turn each in 5 turns and then install the tie rods on the car. Then adjust toe to suit from there.
