You need the plastic replaceable pivot balls. The newer packages include them

Agreed, I got some new aluminum ones and put on new shocks and there is play in there.

I'm thinking the plastic ones like what are on My B5M-L are a better way of doing it.

I got the short shock mounts. They will still work correct? To get those black pivot balls, do i need to buy the other package?

If your going to use the Aluminum Shock Bushing on your B5M you need both parts which are sold separately.
ASC91533 Shock Bushings
ASC91447 Shock Bushing Balls

Mine came with the bushings in it.

Going to the 1.4x3 will just give more steering right? Seems to be a very common setup change, but I don't think I could handle more steering.

The spacers on the ball-stud on the front shock tower affects what?

So from what I understood, adding a spacer on the front shock tower (from 1mm to 1.5) will make the steering less responsive and easier to drive?
