What arms are you using... RSD?
If so, maybe the TC7 C-hubs will fit.

I recently got my hands on a 6.2 and it handles fantastic which leads me to the question of why everyone does the conversion to older suspension parts.
Can anyone tell me the reasoning behind this'and if it does make a difference what parts are changed.

Thanks in advance

As far as I can tell the camber link is the same length or very close to in both 6.2 and 7, because suspension pills setup changed the other culprit must be arm length. Try a narrower rear pill setup or a wider front end and see the car improved.

Yes I am; sorry I should have been more specific. I have tried contacting the company with no luck.

I just would have assumed BD7 hubs.

Not a big deal but time to upgrade; a powerful lesson though; hop ups such as these are for a good time; not a long time.

I think they are actually Spec-R parts. You may be able to PM Cristian here to get more info.

Looking at getting these for my 6.2
http://www.reflexracing.net/RSD-TC62-Spring-Set_p_2157.html

Need to know if the standard shock spring cups will work since these are larger diameter, also what shocks work best

I am new to onroad and just bought a 6.2 it has a rsd narrow chassis and the servo mount is missing. Can I use a stock one? or do I need a special one? Thanks in advance

What's the advantage of running the DCVs over the stock axles?

Less chatter/vibrations at full steering lock.

They do fit but most people are using the BD7 retainers.

When used in the front they aid in making the drive train bind less while turning.
Less binding results in less vibration and more free rotation. (better efficiency)

As allready posted by yodog:
they do fit. I kept the standard spring cup - a bit loose but no problems.
If you want to change the shocks, TC7 will fit. They work great and also have the larger diameter and larger spring cups.
With the TC7.1 there are short shocks available at AE now. But to fit those, you need to change the towers and the top bearing caps and user shorter springs which makes it a quite expensive change.
