Default rc8 steering mod help,AGIAN!

ON THE AE THREAD THEY SAY NOTHING ABOUT THE CONE WASHERS,DO U USE THEM OR NOT ? IF SO WHERE DO THEY GO?ALSO IT SAID IF U USE ALL THE PARTS THEY LIST U DONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE BUMP STEER,IS THIS TRUE?. ANOTHER WORRY I HAVE IS I JUST INSTALLED A LOWER TOP PLATE(INTEGY),AN UPPER TOP PLATE(KING HEADZ) AND A KING HEADZ FRONT SHOCK TOWER. AFTER I WAS DONE I NOTICED ON BOTH SIDES OF MY FRONT UPPER ARMS U KNOW BETWEEN THE UPPER PLATE AND FRONT TOWER BUSHINGS I COULD SEE THE INNER HINGE PIN. I NEVER NOTICED THAT WITH THE STOCK STUFF IT WAS TIGHT AGAINST THE ARMS(THE UPPER PLATE AND THE TOWER)IS THAT OK OR NOT? IF NOT WHAT COULD BE WRONG. THANKS FOR THE HELP.

The cone washers go under the outer turnbuckles to space them up off of the steering knuckle. The car will have bump steer regardless of whether the washers are installed or not, but the washers change the amount of bump steer.

The RC8B top plate and new suspension arms allow you to see a little bit of the hinge pin as well. This is normal, and no problem.
