I am currently putting my car together.

Shocks built up fantastic....very very nice. Zero piston free-play.
Note for all...build tip #1
when putting the plastic blades on the rear bones, slide the Pin thru the blade and thru the bone end then tighten the set screw.
A big plus to the car...No more over extending the blades or hurting finger tips like other brands..trying to fit the blade over the pin.
build tip #2
10mm grub screw for shock (on arm) do not over tighten it may strip. When it stops with minimal force...Then stop turning..
build tip #3
This is absolutely Not
necessary...but a nice way to free up new steering knuckles fast
used super fine grit paper and sanded/polished the steering knuckles (top and bottom), literally 2 seconds per side. That's it.
again 2 second..period..just smoothing, no more or you will create slop.
