1 degree toe out front wheels
2 degrees negative Camber front and rear wheels
5-5-2 diff fluid
Rear lower hinge pins in UP position
Front upper hinge pins in UP position
Front shocks in inner hole on lower arm and outer hole on tower
Rear shocks in outer hole in lower arm and 2nd to outer hole on tower
Rear upper arm in middle center hole on tower and outer hole on hub

If you are running larger tracks the 44T center spur will be ok. If you are runner shorter tracks you need to get the 46T spur that came out with the 1.5R, which will give you alot more bottom end.

Do you have a pic of it? Just want to see what steering turnbuckles are on it. If they are stock 1R ones then you should upgrade to the 1.5r ones. The old 1R ones were known to break a little to easily. 1.5R ones will not break.

Do you have a 3 degree toe plate on it? If you do and its fine your ok. If you find it pushy at all try the 2.5 toe plate.

You should love that buggy. It was known for being extremely easy to drive and drive fast.
