Thanks for the info. Since I only have a B4.0 I never knew the different wheel types of the 4.1 and 4.2.

Difference is the shocks are lower a couple mm with mid tower & inside tower hole.

Lower makes for lower CG on front .
Makes for smoother steering.

Sorry never seen that graph.

I just thought maybe you were interested.
Thanks, that was what I was after! So inside holes on both mm tower and flat arm then?

For those having ball cup binding issues. Go grab some silicone spray from NAPA. It comes in a blue can And it is a NAPA house brand I believe. Spray into the ball cups and thread them in. I used this when I built my last kit And the turnbuckles adjust like butter.

Only for mid tower & flat arms.
Use inside hole on tower & outside hole on arm.

I clean my arms & cups with Endust.

Keeps every thing smooth & a nice lemony smell..

Each day I spray some on a paint brush and polish the car with as well.

My team mates don't have any cups blinding, one did when he got his kit .
He replaced them and took more care installing them.

youve mentioned ballcups at least 5 times since you said youd never mention them again
