I'm on the fence about it I'm still mocking up think I might end up having to repaint It- are you using welded frame connectors or bolt in Ron

I was think about doing a bolt in instead of weld in for that reason-so you used the DSE connectors and modified them to bolt in great idea if you have more pictures I'd appreciate seeing them Ron

Default Dse subframe

Ordered my subframe 8/20/21, called twice and was told they are waiting on steering racks … I asked who the racks were made by and he said “ I don’t remember” wth is that ? You have been waiting on these for months and don’t remember who they are made by ? Feeling frustrated 10k is a lot of money for me to spend to have lackluster customer service. He also said things are messed up since holly took over.

Ask them to ship it without the rack. Pretty sure this rack will fit until you get the DSE part. Summit shows March for the DSE rack…

DSE uses a foxbody style rack - they have their own castings so maybe the guy you spoke with really didn't know? Don't let an answer to that kind of question give you doubts about the company or the product.

Any foxbody style rack will fit the subframe. Unisteer, AGR/Steerco, or even an A1 Cardone will fit it for the time being like Don said.

They may not be able to send it without the rack if it's a kit product. Sometimes things get confused in the books if orders get split up.
Good luck!!

Supply chain issues are causing lots of companies headaches, DSE isn't alone. Lots of companies are waiting on parts to deliver assemblies like your subframe. Speedtech sent my subframe later than originally expected because they were waiting on parts. I'm still waiting on spindles for the subframe because the company that forges them can't get materials. They have been very good about keeping me posted on progress though, spindles should be here in a week or 2.
Frustrating for them and their customers, but it's the new norm unfortunately. Pretty much everything I order now days has a wait time between 8 and 16 week, and often it's supply chain issues.

Yep, super long waits the last year and a half or so. Good thing.... the auto aftermarket is busy, most every vendor I've spoken with has a lot of orders to fill. Bad thing, most of these same vendors have issues getting parts and materials in so they can send their product out the door.

Has anyone gotten a status update from DSE? I ordered my frame in late August and haven't heard anything.

I also ordered a subframe recently for my nova - last quote I heard was early Jan.

On a side note - I was able to attend SEMA this year and chatted with Kyle Tucker. Supply chain issues came up and he said the R&P was one of the issues. He said they should have all of those in by Thanksgiving. That was a few weeks ago at SEMA and may have changed since then. Kyle was a super cool guy to chat with. Very "normal" guy. You wouldn't know he runs DSE.
