For example, I am running an Xray T3'11 and one of Paul's setup sheets calls for 2mm shims on the fron c-hub and 5mm shims in the rear. If I were to do that the camber link would hit the wheels.
So I went with less shims. What does adding shims to the front c-hub and rear upright do?
if i'm not mistaken, he's (paul) also using the ball cups instead of the screws, in the rear upright and front c hub, which is how you can get the 5mm spacer under the rims. I too have a '11 and can only get 4mm unde the rear rim, but i am going to convert it over to a '12, which has converted over to the ball cups. hope that helps
