The Ti coated shock shaft is the same weight as stock. only difference is the titanium nitride coating which is a harder surface with slightly better stickshon (is that a word). I have them on my D06 and the TBB shocks are butter smooth

What Mark said ^^^^

The Ti-Nitride coating will also help prolong the life of the shock shaft and provide improved resistance to scores and scratches.

So true. They are much more resistant to scoring.

I am having an issue with my front suspension. When just the arms are attached they will hang really low as they should, however once the c-hubs and upper camber links are attched they barely hang below level. It appears the loop on the front of the c-hub hits the arm as they move downward preventing any further movement. Any advice on this?

Other than that the VBC kits are awesome. Great fitment of parts and love the grey anodizing. Looks so much better than all the loud bright blue purple and orange running around.

There does not appear to be anything wrong here as this either has to do with the length/positioning of your camber links or shock length.

How do you have your camber links positioned? How long are your shocks overall (If installed)?

No shocks installed yet, the links are long and set to what would be about 0 degrees. Ill post a picture in a bit to show what I am speaking about.

Once the droop is set the droop screws will be threaded in to a point that the arms most likely will be +5 to 6mm above the level of the chassi. I set my front ride height to usually 5.25mm. I will then adjust the front droop to provide about +1.5mm or so over ride height. Once that is done I will take the tires back off I set the car on a flat surface I take a ride height guage and slide it under the bottom of the C-Hub usually I find the bottom to mesures about +6mm. I do this to insure both are set them same. I doubt you will find that the arms once the car is set up will ever drop below the chassi.

I doubt you have anything to worry about.
The "very low" position you are referring to will never bee reached once the car is setup.
That is if I understand your problem correctly.
Post that picture then we will be able to assist you better.

yeah, you don't have to worry about the c-hub preventing the arms from going lower. Once the proper droop settings are achieved, the arms should stay pretty much level anyway.

here is what I am talking about. I know I wont need the arms to go all the way down, but I would like to know that I can get more droop than this if needed. But maybe I wont. Also if you look at the other pic, the front right center toe block appears to be angled out. It is a C0 block, and none of the others are like this. It appears the problem comes from the holes in the chassis. I have put all 4 blocks there and they look the same. I don't really think this will cause a problem, but the smallest things on these cars can have a huge impact.

I think your DCJs could be binding in the outdrive. When I installed the pin on the end of the DCJ, the first time, I installed it just a hair off center. When I put it into the outdrive it would bind and limit the suspension. I would check that, first. It didn't take it being of center very much to cause this.

This has nothing to do with your problem but your your ball cup all the way on the right is the wrong one. It should be the lower profile one like the one all the way on the left.
