Make sure you do not have the ball cups reversed, thus being you have 2 closed style ball cups and 2 open eye ball cups. The closed per say. or standard, thus looking much like turnbuckle ball cups attach to the molded ball studs within the a-arms.

Let me know if that is the issue as it's easy to make that mistake.

Hey guys upgraded the rear with new arms also shimmed 2mm front rear and rear rear hangers. I was used the aluminium upper deck and noticed that the turnbuckles are hitting the shock tower. I do have 2mm spacer on the ball stud. Do i just go back to the orignal rear upper mount (plastic) and slide in a 1mm spacer. I have yo have url to send pics dont know how. To make sense

Hello pull Stix,

If you have the aluminum rear rear and rear front hangers, you can keep the kits rear bumper under the hanger, thus you can negate the thin shim on top of the rear rear hanger or leave. No need to not use the rear aluminum camber block. Just shave a tad of pf the rear CF shock tower mount legs. (Right buy the inner most camber(ball stud location). You will b able to use 2mm shims under your rear camber ballstuds

I understand what your saying as with the rear shocks behind the rear shock tower the ballcups when located on the inner camber hole tend to pinch up against the shoch tower. Also make sure you have the rear shock tower fully secured as securing them extra tight increases room for the ball-cups.

I have the rear aluminum hangers with 1 shim plate on top of the rear rear hanger thus between the top of the rear rear hanger and the aluminum rear camber mount block.
