I wouldn't so eagerly throw out the stock pistons. I use them in my setup and the car runs great. Give them a try at least and change if necessary.

I just recently installed both the aluminum steering crank set and aluminum steering plate on my rb6 and I feel like I have a lot more play (wiggle) now then when it was all plastic. Am I suppose to install washers with them or something to help with the play? If so metal or plastic and where? On the bottom or where the screw is? Or is play good? :-(

P.S. I've already installed the 1mm plastic collar on the bottom as the manual suggests. Just wondering if I should at anything else?

It fits fine but you still have a gap at the back.

I don't know if they're the same material as the kit but I changed out fresh bushings when I installed the new alum steering.

Also, blue thread lock the screws as they'll come loose after runs.

Cheers,
