Yeah, the car is German designed but the kits are made elsewhere. The thing is with this car you can tell all the tooling was done in Germany for Durango and must have shipped them overseas to be molded and packaged. That is OK because the standard of living is being raised in these countries and no longer will manufacturers be able to capitalize on "cheap labor."

In your book there is a chart for spring rate.

I used TC5 ballstuds. You need Long (silver) 8mm, Short (Black) 8mm and Short (Black) 5mm.

Long silvers go where there were conical washers under the ballstuds, on the outter front hubs.

Short 8mms go on the shock towers and rear hubs

short 5mms go on the steering rack
