Please bear with me. 1st - wheel base shim 1mm front? where does this go.. is to widen the car (closer to 190mm?). I understand the arm mount shims ( 3* ff/fr)... 2nd - Bumpsteer 4mm ? is this acheived by shims under the ballstud for steering link?... 3rd - Full shock rebound? is this no foams right?... 4th - For rear it says full wheelbase long. what does this mean? ... 5th - Black ballstud? which one is this? ...and finally when using Ae droop gauge (with tires and shocks removed) what is 1.5 mm of droop equal too? Thanks for your hopefull patience.
1st wheel base is changed by the little black 1mm and 2mm shims that are on the inner hidge pins 1mm is the shim you want to have in front of the arm( closer to the bumper)
2nd you are correct with how to get the bumpsteer
3rd full shock rebound with 2 foams.. use the smaller foam and then the really big foam has an inside foam... pop that inside foam out and use that with the smaller foam that looks just like it inside the bladder.
4th long wheel base is taking both the wheel base shims ( both 1mm and 2mm black plastic ) take the rear arms off the hidge pins take the pin slide both wheel base spacers onto the hidge pin and then slide the arm on. then put the pin in the roll centers and put them back on. This will move the rear arms further back creating a longer wheel base for the car.
5th Black ballstuds are the ones that come with the kit, i am sure that is what is on your car cause you have to purchase the longer/taller silver ones seperate.
Droop .. on Jucha's setup he ended up running 6 in the front and 5 in the rear. you can figure this out by taking the tires off the car but leaving the shock on. you dont need to take them off to get the droop. the 6 and 5 are using the associated droop gauge that comes with the car kit. and you can check the car just under the outer hidge pins on the underneath of the arms.
hope this helps
