Hey there,
at the time i will strenght up my Corsa for the new engine. I think i am on the right way, but one problem i still have.

The original "Front Axle" of the Opel Corsa is too small and to "softly" for "hard driving"...

Have anyone of you any solution to strengthen the Front Axle? I am in Search for a "road-suited" solution, no Uniball...

I think they do fully rose jointed front ends. They must do other stuff to because they are into rally cars.

I know Harry Hockly, but i think the rose jointed front ends makes my chassis "damaged"...

You could get new wishbones fabricated to a higher specification out of tubular steel rather than pressed sheet metal. Not sure how much that would stiffen things up though.

Where can i buy this?

In Germany many people speeks about "triangle steering". I think that is a good solution, but no one has made/seen it.

You would have to have it custom made as I have not seen this for sale. Maybe it would be a good idea to have a look at what the Corsa rally cars use? I'm not sure where you could find this information though.
