That's weird how some of yours came out like that, mine came out pretty normal

After a while you will come to the same conclusion I did. Screw the turnbuckles in, put the whole thing together then throw it onto a setup station.

The only real concession I make these days are getting the steering links exactly the same length...

I took my caliber and set it to the same length as the drawling instead of the numbers they gave and it looks a lot better

If you don't have a camber guage, the least you could do is setup something with a right angle to verify pretty close to equal negative camber Just saying..

Mine looked exactly like that also before I went to the tuning station.

Built two straight from the kit instructions they were spot on
.
Either there was a running change to the manual or you used different mounting holes for the inboard side of the links than was stated in the manual.
Really no big deal just get out the tool and start cranking until it look right.
ours were within a turn of the turnbuckle from being perfect.

On page one it shows to use outer camber link holes, in the manual it shows to use inner holes. That'll do it if you used the Dunford setup from the first page.

My 2.0 should be here today. Still waiting on my 275 sensor wire and a few other pieces and then I'll start putting it together. Without searching a hundred pages what are the things to watch out for other than the shock bottoms? I build 3 hd diffs and ran them in my 1.0 so they shouldn't be an issue

The steering links you want to make sure they are the same length to start and then you can make equal adjustments left and right to set the toe in. The camber linke I just make sure I thread them on the same amount left and right and adjust on the truck. IMO it is a waste of time to measure the camber links as you fine tune those on the car always.

Built two with no real issues.
There is a build tips download on the first page that helps a lot.
The diffs arent a problem if you are experienced.
we counted the parts as we built and i think it was about 725 pieces total counting nuts bolts set screws body and everything.
I spread it out over a few weeks as i was teaching a total noob but I'm sure it could be done in an evening but a LONG evening mind you.
Pre order the shock caps. You CAN use the kit ones but you need to crank on them with pliers to get them on..

If you really know what you are doing (I built three trucks in about 2 weeks, not all min I only have one! ) but I got it down to about 4-5 hours without electronics. 4wd cars there are a lot of parts.

I lost the little nub cover for my antena tube, Im going to put one little wrap of electrical tape around it so crap doesnt get into it. Is this going to affect the reception and distance or no? Thanks.
