Check the fit for the radiator.

As previously mentioned, the Borgerson is smaller than the cpp and on some cars the cpp requires 'notched' radiator.

Also, check the tubular upper control arms (required to get the caster) and a larger front sway bar. And the steering column parts required.

It's not a simple, nor as inexpensive as the vendors make it seem.

The radiator needs to be 'notched' IF the steering box will interfere with it. Something like this:

Notice the 'notch' in the lower left (as looking at the pic).

The Borgeson steering box is 'shorter' than the CPP.

Does that help?

Pete
