easy part - small black o-rings are for the side tubes ball studs.
as for the side links, you need to start out w/ them the same length. you start with the center pivot/foot ball connected -- remove the pod plates / motor / axle -- just so you have the main chassis and the lower pod plate connected. you shouldn't have the damper plate connected or springs touching/etc.
connect one link. look at the distance between the graphite. make then even by adjusting a tie rod.
add the second link. move the pod back and forth. is it tight/notchy? adjust the link longer or shorter until it is butter smooth. if it isn't smooth -- stop and ask for help.
i'll be at Horsham RC tomorrow (saturday) all day. i'm in jersey city, nj -- so i take the 80+ mile trip there every week. we can help you there on site.
if you cannot make it out -- reply back once you get to adding the second link.
