Don't have the sway bars in front of me, but I think they use 5-40.

5-40? Thats the same size set screws in my PRS pinions, I dont think they are that small. I could be wrong though.

they are smaller than a pinion grub screw, they are the same thread as the droop screws.

Can someone please explain to me how the standard and offset rear hubs measure as far as setups. Like on Mike Hayness' Birds setup he said he used 3 degree rear toe with a 2 degree rear pivot and a standard hub. Doesnt the 2 degree rear pivot and the one degree built in equal to three? So what does the standard hub equal to? And the offset, what do they equal? Why would you use the stardard and offset instead of just 1/2, 0, 1,2?
Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is 1 degree of toe built into the chassis, so a 0 hub and 2 pivot will yield 3 degrees of toe.

Offset hubs make for a shorter rear arm, we really don't use this on the type r much.

I understand that part of it Mike. I guess I asked the question wrong. What I was getting at was, so in that setup of yours I described above, the only thing that can be surmised is that the standard hub equals 0 degree. So is the standard hub 0 degree, and if so, whats the difference between standard hub and a 0 degree hub? So you would have three degrees of rear toe either way with a standard or 0 degree hub and two degree rear pivot? Am I making sense or not?

The standard rear hub is 0 degrees, its just a matter of what we call them.

Okay, thanks. That was just confusing me on the setup sheets why they had STD and 0 degree listed if they were the same.
