  • Quote: Also looks like I'm missing the 2 outer steering ball studs. Supposed to be 6mm but I have a couple of 10mm ball studs. I can make them work, just thinking maybe some one got in a hurry packing things up to get kits out the door.
    Outer rears should be 10mm. They should be able to put a locknut on the back to secure it better.

    I meant the front. Steering ball studs. Page 7 of the manual, goes on the steering block arm. I don't have the 6mm, but DO have 2 10mm left. I can make the 10 work, might just need to demel off any excess length if I get any interference.

    Cant buy em in germany

    Or is the J2225 the correct number? Would be cheaper to get the Lunsfords (not a set, I can buy the 48mm ones for 10 a pair)?
    Anyone please?

    What? The correct JC part number is 2580.

    what offset do you have in rear hubs.
    if you have all the way to bottom, you are at the tallest setting
    should be the 1/2 insert with tab up, this is the +1 setting

    should be 5mm offset spring collar

    Can't be bought in Germany, i posted the B5s Set which should work fine...if I posted the right set of turnbuckles (these are the only ones i could buy here)

    Use Yatabe Arena springs, or try using the 0 offset cups. I ran 16mm with the Yatabe Springs no problem.

    Run the 0 offset spring cups. This will allow you to get to a lower ride height

    Try +1 on axle front and rear axle heights. Refer to Spencer's JC Spring nationals setup sheet. he ran 20.5mm rear and 21mm front with 5mm cup offset
