Here's some pics of my car last weekend, on and off the track....
Just leave the disc guides completely off ??
Any other tips I need to know before first run??

Thanks for all the help guys

Just leave the guides off.. Also you will need to cut or dremmel A LITTLE off the bottom of the servo saver where it hits the captured hinge pin. You'll see what I'm saying.

ya leave them in the box...

I loosely assemble the shock seals without tightening the retainer on the bottom of the shocks.... then slide the shafts through oiled up..... then tighten the retainer..... that way you wont damage the orings

be sure to grease up the servo saver well so it pivots nicely....

if any rod ends are tight when you snap the balls in, pinch them with pliers so theyre free.

std stuff for any kit

OK guys here's the way you want to install the spacers and oring into the BB shocks...... the bottom one has a lip to center in the retainer..

I install all the orings and spacers and twist the retainer on a few turns and oil them up well... insert the shaft, then tighten the retainer down.... that way you wont tear an oring and they stay super smooth for along time

Let me know if you guys have anymore ???'s on your builds

Also as a tidbit the aftermarket is going at our car full steam.. as of right now the first product available is a complete screw kit from Tony's Screws.... I've known Tony for quite a few years and he is one of the top notch guys in the industry.... If you guys have any screw needs, he would be the man.
