the cav way seems like the worst way. lowering the axle or raising the steering rack to me could give the same effect without weakening the steering block. has any pics been posted of this mod

Moving the axle will change the geometry in other, unwanted, ways. Like ride height when the arms are level.

I was running M4 electrons all around with the stock closed cell foams.
When I built my B5M I used this set up and followed it to a "T"...or so I thought. I just realized that he uses the B5 rear arms also. I ordered some today. Will I notice a big difference and is there a certain way that I need to install them?

Yes you will notice more rear traction bc the arms push your rear hubs forward about 2mm from stock. Also you want to flip them and run the right one on the left side and vise versa

Left arm will go on the right side and the right arm will go on the left side. Make sure the arms don't rub on the chassis by the inner hinge pin, mine were very close.

Will you notice a difference, only you can answer that by trying them. Most people say yes though.
