I will have to double check my chassis when I get home but im pretty sure at 5.5mm im only dragging in the back of the chassis. But I guess it could start dragging when i go to 5 and 4 for droop. I guess we will see.

One of the upcoming 418 stabilizer sets will come with hardware.

I hope you are right as most Stabilizer sets for TRF's are just the bars. The other cars have the hardware included in the sets as they dont come in the kit. As noted above its a shame as I want to fit them to my spare 417 but some of the hardware is hard to find

Hopefully someone can give me some pointers/advice here... all shocks are the same eye to eye, ive backed out the droop screws and disconnected the sway bars, and the chassis in ballanced left to right. But for some reason im getting a half millimeter difference from left to right with the shock collars set at the same setting left to right. Left front and rear read 6mm and right front and rear read 5.5mm. The chassis sits flat on the table.

Did you loosen the suspension mounts (single piece and separates) to see if you gain the 0.5 mm back?
