The pucks system includes outdrives as well as the bone and pucks. But yeah, a TLR aluminum bone will fit on the B5.

tlr does fit but maybe a little too long when compressed. ae is flat at the end and tlr is round. just need to shave flat like ae one and/or add an o-ring to the shock shaft so it doesn't compress all the way down.

How do you remove 1mm from bumpsteer? Right now there are no washers under the stud (at least stock setup) are you talking about on the rack (adjusting Ackerman)

On the rear camber links are u using the alum brace with with 4mm on the low side. (that would be +2 from stock)

thanks

I'm glad I'm not the only one with the bump steer issue. I considered flipping the steering arms around, just haven't had the time to mess with it. Not sure if spacers would fit down in the nut cavity naturally or not.

So far the only "problem" i have had with my b5m is the spring slightly jumped off the lower cup. No mechanical failures yet. Just need to start using chassis protectors!

Doesn't 4mm on the low side of the aluminum rear ballstud mount just equal to if you ran it on the built in +2 high side ? I know using 2mm washers on the low side puts it at "zero" (like plastic mount with no washers).

Yes that is correct I think he didn't want to flip the bracket or something. You can achieve the same height if you flip the bracket with no spacers.

Low side -2mm

High side +2mm

This is what I got from reading previous posts about the alloy camber block.
