You can buy extra front shock tower and put together
I think washers are used for to be able to mount the stand off closer in. I have wanted to move the shocks further in on the top, may give this a try.

Just in case it's not totally obvious - I got caught out with this - you'll also need to replace the existing 22mm length screws for longer ones (the ones for the shock stand-offs) with the added thickness. I found some spare 2mm washers and stacked them together, looking forward to mounting the shocks forward. Then at the last minute, noticed there wasn't enough thread with the kit 22mm screws to get the lock-nut on fully. (sad trombone).

I shimmed 3mm forward. Have to change main screws to be longer to compensate for the extra spacing.

What's the benefit of spacing the front tower?

Default Front and rear diff

Hi regarding d418, just wondering if its still hard to remove front and rear diff like d413 removing a lot of screws . Has it been updated? Is maintenance easier this time?

To make vertical the shocks instead angle. I installed mine and feel better for jump compare without spacer in shock tower.
