Thanks Kaz, sounds like you've done a great job - pity you live so far away from me - logistical issues - would it take a long time to do the installation?

Ooh this looks fantastic - hubby won't drive our camper. How does this compare to the Danbury option?
(we're thinking this would solve our dodgy steering)

That looks an impressive bit of kit, wish I'd known about it 6 years ago. In retrospect I'd have gone for a LHD and got that fitted. (I'm assuming that the cost of LHD to RHD is included in the labour costs)

Not sure about the relative costs, but what I can glean is the Danbury RHD conversion is £2000, and direct drive was £2000 back in 2010.

Fitting the Red9 is £2000 for the kit plus fitting of £550 (more for a Brazilian, but even if it is £1000, it is still cheaper for a complete front end)

For this you get wishbone with coil over suspension, rack and pinion steering, and presumably a lot less maintenance.

Like it.

Hi this is the first one we have done , so took us a bit longer , i saw on a previous post that simon at Red9 replaced the steering colume and used a splitty colume , but i removed and modified my original one so was able to keep my switch gear , horn and steering wheel , had to make up a new colume floor mount , and a new heavy duty steering box mount , the beam is 40mm narrower and gives you lots of lowering options 6in lower than stock if you want , but honest the steering is like a modern car . I think if enough people were intrested simon at Red9 may make a kit specific for a brazillian that would make the job so much easier to fit

I'd be interested to see a photo of your steering box mount. Mine is a little exposed beneath the van, and I have to be careful about speed bumps.

It's about 2700 Euros. You'll need something to keep that Subaru in a straight line!

Just booked ours in to have Wishbone Suspension & Vented Disk Brakes fitted
Great conversation with Simon, who was really helpful Smile
Only sad thing is we can't get in until mid-October -

Scooby likes to wander Wink
Typically slowly from A to Zee (not just A to Bee)
As they say; Its the journey not the destination Cool
