BTW, don't forget to turn your inserts if you decide to do it.

All depends on which inserts you're running.

Thanks Captain Obvious. Obviously, if you're running 3 degrees(zero degree inserts), you won't need to turn them.

Nope. The wheel, hex, hub, and camber ear all stay the same no matter what you do.

While I'm at it, I also weighted the shock towers. Factory plastic shock towers are 24.2g, Cream front and rear towers are 27.9g. Cream front tower has those Al mounts, which alone weight 8.1g, and make the tower heavier than plastic counterpart.

Default TLR 22 shock cap

Does anyone know if the Al shock cap from TLR22 would fit the big bore shock or not?

But more weight up front is preferred.
