JayRacing 1g AWD Rear Active Toe Correction Kit Install
Illustrated in this video is the JayRacing Active Toe Correction Kit. They're for a 22 year old car. When these cars were delivered new, the bushings were fresh and straight, and configured for a car that made about 200 hp. People simply don't leave these cars producing stock power, so many of the suspension parts may not work like they were originally intended after 20 years of dry rotting.
What these parts do is allow you to harden the rear trailing arms so they don't give or roll under load. When you load up the suspension with a hard launch or a hard corner, the factory rubber bushings in the rear trailing arm can give, changing the toe of the rear wheel. When launching, both shift toward each other, causing the rear wheels to toe in. Toe is necessary for the front wheels, but it's not beneficial for the rear. The result is a squirly launch, un-even tire wear, loss of traction capability, and track. The JayRacing Active Toe Correction Kit is the only bushing set made for Mitsubishi that fixes this condition on 1st generation AWD cars. After welding in the bushings, you have a threaded Heim joint with a lock nut which can be adjusted to correct for toe angle under load. Unlike the factory rubber bushings, this one will not give. It keeps the toe angle locked where you have it set.
I just helped install it. I had some tools necessary for the job and enough curiosity about the product to make me want to get my hands dirty. After all, I just welded the same rear into my Colt, and might need to correct some of the geometry of my rear suspension, requiring some degree of adjustability. The car these are going on is a 1990 Eagle Talon AWD that has managed to put down 121 mph trap speeds but never hit 11's because it won't beat a 2.0 60-foot time. Hopefully bringing the rear into a better state of repair and geometry can help take care of this issue. With that top end, it should be running well into the 11's.

The build thread for this car is located here:
The suspension plans are currently being fulfilled and you can follow that discussion here:
I haven't seen any pictures or threads doing this installation the way we did it, but I found it's by far the easiest of the method's I've heard discussed. Lil' heat, lil welding wire, lil paint and some other modifications that you may be interested in. Stay tuned for the results and a few other upgrades related to the rear geometry.
