I also made sure the shaft moved freely from all the way compressed to all the way extended. and it does move in and out freely with no binding and sticking. now i bolted the shocks back onto the car, and they still stick. the return almost all the way out but then stick. has anyone else had this problem and what should i do? thanks
Just an idea, what spring cup are you using ?

I know that when I tried the 0mm ones (the shorstest) it bound and the cup touched the arms before full extension of the shocks.

I think because the number was converted from pounds.

Yes with tires, race ready.

Sorry for OT but anyone happen to know where I could pick up a exotek slipper eliminator (aside from Stormer that wants $8 in shipping for one)?

According to Exotek, the TRF201 is compatible with the B5 one and is in stock. I assume it is the exact same dimensionally, only probably slight differences in anodizing color. Mike should be able to confirm.
