How To Install N2itive Components
2itive, components are not too difficult to install for the professional mechanic or experienced home mechanic. Please reference the following pages to learn how to install our Alignment Kit 1 and 2 plus our adjustable SX-1 camber arms, TSX-1 toe arms and our RSX-1 ultra precision lowering links. If you have any questions after reading through these pages and watching the videos then please let us know. We’re here to help.
We are currently working on new instructional pages for our V2 line of control arms and alignment kits. In the meantime please refer to the following videos as to how to install N2tive’s new SX-P2 rear camber arms for the 2021 and later Tesla Model S and X. And also the our new video on the installation of the SX-2 and TSX-1 Pro camber and toe arms for the 2012 – 2020 pre-refreshed Tesla S and X.

When aligning the SX-P2 adjustable camber arms you may find the adjuster can be difficult to turn at times. This happens because the adjuster is not in line with the axis of the bushings due to constraints of working within Tesla’s design. To overcome this you can apply pressure to the bottom of the arm with a 2×4 or similar piece of wood and push up from the bottom with a jack. This will relieve the binding and allow the adjuster to turn more freely.
2021+ SX-P2 Arm Torque Specs: small clamp with T30 Torx = 10ft/lbs. with clamp facing down. Large clamp with 8mm Allen bolt = 38 ft/lbs. The arms come set to factory length and loose in the box so you can shorten them to aid in an easy installation if you want. We suggest for street use to lengthen the arm to +7mm after installation and before you set the car down and before it goes on the alignment rack. This will put you in a good ballpark range of great street alignment for even tire wear and you’ll spend less time on the alignment rack. If you have to drive the car to get an alignment, please tighten the two clamps before driving.
Do not adjust or remove the screws that hold the bracket in place, if you have the version with the bracket!
Below is the installation instructions of the our original first version SX-1 and TSX-1 camber and toe arms along with our original RSX-1 lowering links. Installation of RSX-2 links is almost identical with some small changes to the retaining clips and design. Please note that from 2012 to 2020 pre-refreshed S and X there are 2 long links for the rear and 2 shorter links for the front. On the 2021 and later refreshed S and X all 4 links are the same size.
