Default Insight control arm mod for RSX knuckle

This turned out to be a bit expensive but if you have resources it works well. I bought the following LCA ball joint inserts for the Type R DC5 LCA to USDM knuckle.

After he removed the stock ball joint we found that the insert was a bit small so he sleeved it and pressed it in, a washer now goes under the castle nut to hold it all together. The labor to do this was $250 for me but Im sure many on here can handle the job. later on we are going to fit Mugen compliance bushings but for now I'm leaving them stock.

You should post this in the K swap Insight thread.

I made my ball joint adapters. The insight ball joint nut has a monster flange on it, no need for a washer to capture the sleeve. (not pictured)
