it is true that all the VDC kits need small modifications at installtion. take a close look at my picture. i re-drill all the holes in proper positions, and welded all the bolts to fix it securely. i think, this step is important...
but, it is also true that carexcess kit is the best hinge among available VDC kits including some craps.
the carexcess kit is the best kit, but they all have recalled parts to them because decah messed up. so that means when anyone who has them on now, if your doors fall later on you better pull out another installation cost of between 500.00-800.00 to uninstall them and then another 500.00-to 800.00 again to reinstall them again, to do both doors again. the screw will fall out sooner or later. if you dont get that recall part out of your current hindes and replace it.its going to cost you in the future. this problem is it a decah problem? i think that decah should pay us for the reinstalling them . dont you think. its unfair for us to shell out money again due to the error their company made.what do you think will they be willing to pay up for their error? its sound fair to me. i bought the kit. then put it on . and now they realize that it needs to be remodified. so that means we should pay for labor to take of the hindes and then pay again for labor to reinstall. thats going to be soooooo much money .
oh and if you guys who have the hinges on now . take a flashlight and look at the hindes where the screw is . right on bottom the little part is digging into your hinges . mine is going so far in . its about half way from snapping. is this normal? im just worried that it will snap in another 6 months. is there a way to protect this problem from digging futher into my doors?
at first,, very sorry to hear that. if i were able to help you..
the answer is umm..yes and no..
although that's expensive kit, but the decah has the responsibility of product itself, not installtion. just in my thought.. no offence..
btw, you talking about screwed door stopper (i used cement glue to fix it) or screw itself (welded in mine)?
is it quite normal that VDC kit needs some modification and adjustment after installtion?
removing both fenders is only 30mins work for me, so it doens't sound so harsh for me...
anyway, do you have pics?
