Not much.... the rear end is about 4~5mm Narrower overall.. and the "mounts" themselves are just ever so slightly narrower by about a 1mm on the front and 1.5mm on the rear one ... ( this if for the GHEA one )

Been running black front springs with 1.6 30wt, and white rear 1.6 30wt, thinking of trying green in fronts and changing shock oil, any thoughts.

Those are dex210 front arms just to make that clear. It was a pretty easy swap. The standard ballstuds and nuts don't fit quite right but they'll work.

The height of the steering block is higher so I had to play with that a bit and I'll need to watch bump steer.

The plastic is much stiffer. Close to the b4 carbon stuff and everything so far has much better tolerances.
