..and report back. Here is a view taken from down in the passenger side footwell of an LTS (non-LSS car). You can see the mount for the Elise steering rack. The rack shim is shown and you can see the rivet, and two rack bolts. You can also see the identifying cutouts on the vertical sides of the shim. Three per side for the LTS cars.
I have heard for a long time that the LSS cars have a different rack shim (8mm different rack height) and now am hearing that both LTS and LSS use the same shim. Maybe this is an S2, S3 or Federal thing I am not sure and my service manuals and parts lists are still not here.
Let's find out for sure!
Look into your LSS car's footwell and count how many cutouts or marks are along the sides of your shims. One rumour says 5 (five) per side for LSS. The they-are-all-the-same rumour possibility should show 3 (three) cutouts per side. Thanks in advance!!
PS: This is how bump steer is adjusted on the Elise. If you don't stay stock and lower the car alot this is something you should adjust. On shims for different rack heights, the distance between the bolts stays the same since those go into the rack, but the distance from those holes to the rivet hole is different. That rivet goes through a precisely located hole in the frame and locates the shim and therefore the rack as desired heightwise. The holes in the frame for the rack bolts are oversized so that height changes can be accommodated...
