I got the Yokomo springs with the Spec-R shock parts and the spring retains okay in the bottom, but pretty sloppy on the top (ae shock collar) and the shocks don`t stay on the ae ball stud from the arms. Any extra parts needed that I`m missing ?

You need the Tamiya collars along with the Tamiya of rings... they come seperate.

1-Make sure your installing the insert on correct side of mount..Side with recess is correct.

2-Like said already ..Make sure they are fully seated..One of my cars I had to use a little extra effort.

I was told they were for the battery to hold in in better but they need to be much larger for that I used servo tape to take out slop

I saw one person post about their arms being tight. Anyone else? Mine were so tight front and back I had to shave 1mm of the arms to have free motion. That seems a little much too me since that is the size of one of the spacers your supposed to run. Yes, my inserts were on the correct side and flush.

I had my same problem with mounting my arms pin holder ,I find the solution in not tight the screw all the way in the back pin holder before try to put in place the front pin holder , it's a tight fit

Once you have the arms in place and on the hangars, just take a small wrench and tap the front and the back of the arms (with some force) and you'll notice the arms will free up.

Started building my 6.2 yesterday, few problems, first off the arms are too tight, secondly the chassis is tweaked somehow? I was careful not to over tighten anything and used loctite. I'm thinking maybe the top plate? Is there are right way and a wrong way to tighten the screws down on it? I've the roll bars to fit next but feel like stripping it down and starting again
