when using the schumacher wide stagger rib front tires without inserts, do you vent them (put a hole in them)?

Normally we use an insert in the wide 4wd staggers, it's the slim 2wd ones you can run without one.

That's what I did Brudda added more caster 2.5 inserts. The aluminum 8 degree caster blocks actually seem to match the kits 10 degree caster blocks. Strange as they say 8 degree but they definetly fall in line with the kits caster blocks.

Thanks Brudda

So i decided to boil the arms today for 30 minutes and lets just say i was pleasantly surprised, had a couple of descent crashes that would have normally destroyed the arms and they held up just fine, if your having arm breaking problems i highly recommend.

Just sitting down to throw a few more aluminum bits in my YZ-4 and finding that the aluminum steering bell crank for YZ-2 (Z2-201BA) required different bearings than those provided with the YZ-4. Both AMain and Mibo list the Z2-201BA as compatible with both cars.

Anybody encounter this? I'm thinking I could pick up four bearings and be good to go. Just didn't expect this.

Everywhere I look Z2-201BA is called out as the part number. Wondering if I pick up four 5x8 bearings it'll work. Looks like the YZ-4 bell cranks use 5x10 bearings. A little uneasy about changing the steering geometry event slightly.

The aluminum bellcranks are the same between the yz2 and yz4.
The steering rack itself is different between models.

I just took a look at both of my manuals.
The yz4 stock plastic bellcranks take 5x10mm (4) bearings.

The yz2 aluminum (and yz4 option) bellcranks take 5x8mm (4) bearings.

So if you want to use the option bell cranks you'll need to pick up four 5x8mm bearings. Thanks Antimullet.
