OK I'll try it again. I've done it a couple of times already now. I don't know what the deal is...
I have changed the bladder and the seals and it still does it. HMM..... Maybe I need to change the piston and try that. I dono..

no kidding i dont know why it doesnt .

i mean, if you mount the shock in the outside hole the first hole on the bottom on the arm thats the softest setting which i tried and it sucked for me to much side to side roll . and the middle hole is stiffer which is a lot better than.. the outside hole one i havnt tried was the inside hole the 3 hole which i do wonder if that works good on a hard packed dry track?


and, also the manuel doesnt explain what the spring rates do and how they work on the eight so you have to guess.

just try and find out well i tried to use the (a) hole on the 2.0 rear hubs and the #4 hole on the tower and i tried to rejust the camber because it was pushed out well if i turn the turnbuckle backwards. it just pushes the camber out more and if i keep on turning it to try to get 2- camber it wont go any farther or i will strip my ball cups out.


i mean i could try to use the (a) hole on the hub and use #5 camber link on the tower but it says on my manuel that its not as good on bumps compared to the #4 hole.

now im guessing that the #5 hole on the left on the tower will be a shorter link ? or a longer link ?

You are very impatient. As i stated and many agreed try different set ups, just because a set up says use this doesnt mean its right for you. Try different things. You can always cut the links if you want short camber links. if i were you i would try B/1 that would be my starting point and alter your settings from there
