The other nut driver size you're looking for is 11/32 for the rear wheels and the servo saver nut

Do people seem to have trouble with the stock shock cap on the B4/T4? I am putting my kit together (T4) and those shock caps are junk.

OK. The shock pistons come out to 10.12mm and the inner diameter of the shock body is 10.14mm. Or this could be .398" for piston and .402" for shock body. This is all close to 25/64" if you'd like that measure.

Shock Caps. The only issue I had was putting the wrong O-ring on. What problems are there with the stock plastic shock caps?

Sometimes they are fiddly to get started. When you first install them you need to 'back thread' them a little before starting them. Place them on the body and slowly rotate them in reverse direction until you feel them 'pop' into the thread. Then just begin threading them down. Do this every time and you will be fine.

What upgrade caps are you referring to? I know of none other than the aluminum ones, and they aren't an upgrade.

I have thought about getting the aluminum caps cause they use a taller mount. The plastic caps are short and I have to keep the shock retaining nut loose or else it will bind on the shock cap. But it's not a big issue. just something to watch out for.

I had a small prob with a set of yoks. they didn't thread easily all the way and leaked til I got them truely seated/tightened..... getting them started is a touch harder than the stock ones but not much. I'm still tweaking my bleeding skills but get the job done....
