good to know, I was gonna stick the blue ones in hehe

Apparently TOP have 43mm ones already?

Check your thrust bearing! Some kits have ad many as nine in the bag. Check it!

It's 49313, 49314, 49315 you really want to avoid. The temptation is stroooong.

I believe TOP is planning to release a shorter bone, but doesn't have it available yet. I'm just looking for solutions to the CVD blade problem, and it seems the length of the rear CVD's is currently the prime suspect.

Yep I've thrown 2 blades and ruined my outdrive in the process. Even with the blade sanded like we do on the 416 it still touches, this is with 2.5 deg of rear toe and 4 cone washers

EJ said the new ones are 44.5mm... which makes me wonder why they have a 43mm available. I'm getting a set of these this week so I'll sus it out then

I hope my car has the correct ones . Couldn't you just run a few more spacers behind the lower suspension pivots? Make the ass a bit wider ?

Yeah that would solve the problem, but the setup I'm working towards is actually .5mm narrower in the rear arms

The different lenght bones are a tuning option as the car will handle differently with different lenghts. Usually, shorter bones will increase responce from the end of the car the are put in and slightly reduce roll (universal will bind more/more angle from being shorter through suspension travel).

The car standard is actually pretty narrow in the rear. (I think 186-187mm). I'm suprised to hear you want to run it this narrow. I used a 1mm spacer in the front of the rear arm and a 3mm spacer in the rear of the rear arm... I also prefered to narrow the rear from the wheel hub (hex) on the outside instead of on the inside. This is why I've drawn and asked for (I think we are making) 4mm hexes for the car....

Whoops I forgot the hexes are wider than what I'm used to... carry on

I'm running the same suspension spacers as you, can you explain how have your diff assembled so as not to get binding on the driveshaft blade?

Does shimming the screw resolve the blade failure issue?
