A buddy and I have wondered this same thing but have come to the conclusion that it really is not needed on this car, but I would still like to try it lol

I tried that, the guy I bought from ended up having none in stock and the only other one on ebay is from the UK.

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.
That was my next step after asking here but STLNLST helped me out.

Over the years I've had so many people step up and help me out with things that I try to return the favor whenever possible. Should we be at the same race and you beat me with it I want it back having fun is the bottom line.

I doubt anybody has, or would need to. And only if you were already running the softest spring you can, and needed to go softer.

Drilling a 4th inner hole will not stiffen the rear, it will soften it.

Has anybody tried the Associated titanium screws yet? Was wondering how the quality compares to Lunsford.

Was thinking more so using it to get a little more grip and trying to maintain the way it jumps and lands as much as possible without going softer on a rear spring.

What were you wondering about them? I know the protek ones are pretty good, and shaves quiet a bit of weight.

I know its an extra $50 bucks but...

The Lunsford Ti screw kit is far superior to the Chinese made ae/protek kits. The fit and finish, screw thread depth, materials used (higher grade of Ti used) will outlast any other kit. I have used cheaper Chinese made Ti screw and was blown away by the Lunsford product. You will be able to tell when the Chinese made hex heads strip and the Lunsford ones remain intact. You also get more in the Lunsford kit with front/rear shock length screws. No brainer $50.

Hey Trevor! I really am waiting for the Schelle kit. I'm expecting Lunsford quality without the screws below the chassis. Looking to keep those stock i think.

I haven't tried AE or Protek. Lunsford are great. I did buy some off brand for a back up diff and they were not bad. Did not have the finish of the Lunsford but they screwed in just as well. Lunsford does come with entire kit, like over 100 screws and you get every screw. Don't know about protek or AE. It is quite a price difference.

Protek titanium screws are "so-so" IMHO. Some of the screw heads were a little soft.

Does anybody know where the spacers go that come with the aluminum steering. It just seems to tight when I install it.
