If you do disassemble the DJC take note that there are 2 different sized spring clips, don't mix them up or one will be a little loose and the other will not cover the cross pin completely.
Thank you for the info!!!

I think Serpent sells them. I got one from a friend. Any long aluminium 3mm ends tubing should work. Check other brands.

I use a Tamiya F104 battery post iirc its 26mm, and I'll just put a 1mm shim between the post and the top deck to stiffen the car when needed.

To be able to use 401863 you will require 401588 posts. then your levers will mount to the 401588 and the rest of the mount will use the typical screws through the chassis.

I'm using one of my X20's in the VTA class. But I'm having some ride height issues. With the default settings and spring collars adjusted all the way out, my rh is 5.5mm to 6mm. Any suggestions on how to start lowering that?

You could try shortening the shock rods a couple threads.

These retainers are shorter than the stock ones?

We used to run those on on the S411 short shock so that you could still use the 23mm springs. That said, they should give you some more adjustment on the X20, just check that you still have clearance on the attachment point of the lower arm to shock.

***I think I still have a set of those in my spares, I will check if they are different when I get home.

Ok, I checked to what I believe are the RCM-SS lower shock retainers, and if what I have are the actual RCM-SS parts, they look like the same retainers that come stock on the new X20 shocks.................so be wary as this may not be the ride height fix for VTA.
