V2 Skyline (R32, R33, R34, Z32）スーパーロックナックル
The V2 GKTECH front R chassis Skyline front super lock knuckles have been developed with the learnings from our previous V1 aluminium knuckles and we now present a light weight, sheet metal design after hundreds of hours of FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to improve the strength of the product but also keep the weight down. With 65+ degrees of steering lock being able to be achieved with ease whilst keeping a linear steering response these knuckles are suited to drift or circuit racers.

- Spindle height raised for roll center and bump steer correction
- 65+ degrees of steering lock
- Lightweight (1.4kg lighter EACH)
- R32/Z32 and R33/R34 specific versions
- Linear steering response for optimal drive
- Nissan Skyline R32 GTS-T
- Nissan Skyline R33 GTS-T
- Nissan Skyline R34 GT-T
- Nissan Z32 300ZX
-For Z32 owners these knuckles are designed on using a J-arm top bearing with I.D of 28mm, this is 98% of all J-arms, but may be worth checking to ensure it is a straight fit. If not, the 28mm I.D bearing can be purchased and will be needed.
-Steering lock of 65+ degrees quoted is based on having wheel clearance. If you have high offset wheels and your wheel hits the chassis then you may get less than this amount of steering lock.
-Only suits RWD steering setups. GTS-4 and GTR front suspension setups are different and these knuckles will NOT work with them.
-When using R34 front brake calipers the mounting holes need to be drilled out from 12mm to 14mm (there is enough material to cater for the increase in hole diameter).
-Does NOT have a provision for ABS
They are quite easy to install but mechanical knowledge is certainly required. Remove your standard knuckles, press out the old hubs, press the hubs into the new knuckles and the knuckles will bolt straight in.
Do you make knuckles for other cars?
We make knuckles for S and R chassis Nissans, we don't make them for any other cars.
How much angle can I get from these knuckles?
Depending on the width and offset of your rims, and whether you're running standard lower control arms or notched/modified lower control arms (or standard) you will see between 60 degrees - 70 degrees of steering lock.
Are these suited to circuit/grip racing?
Yes, absolutely. The weight saving and the roll center and bump steer correction is great for additional front end grip and the steering arm length means quite linear steering.
Do I need to do any other modifications to get the most from these knuckles?
Yes, notched lower control arms or atleast modified bump stops will help. Rack spacers are recommended or alternatively longer tie rods or some of our tie rod ends (adjustable length). Note that of all of the steering racks, the R33 steering rack provides the least amount of travel so if you are chasing every last degree of angle, swapping to an R32 steering rack will give a few more degrees of lock.
