I unzipped using winrar and the file is identical to just unzipping. Vista doesn't seem to have a lot of fans, but I can't see how the OS will not let Excel open the file. Thanks

I tried to unzip using XPs own and it said no files exist. So I have a zip file with no way to get what it has in it.

What OS and App versions are you running?
I'm running Vista as well so I'm sure thats the issue.

A couple of questions-

The play of the kingpin in the steering blocks, necessary or not? Seems to me any play at all would cause havoc with camber/toe settings.

For high grip ashalt, what are the desired tire sizes and compounds to run front/rear?

How much droop to run in the front?

I learned from Donny Lia and Mike Haynes, you just force them up on the pivot balls and leave it there, there is no reason for them to be free... that was the whole design advantage of the active strut... no need to ream or anything, just shim the kingpin.
