We discontinued our D8T body; you might want to look at the Mugen body. You will have to do the front body mount mod like the PL guys do.

The new cups are working very well, but I recommend pre-tapping them or using a little bit of grease on the treads. They are made with a much harder material and are tight on the threads.

The standard AE tie rods will work with these?

They are actually designed to give more clearance for the rear wheel on the outer hub, but you could use them on the inside to help get a little extra clearance for the shock.
