Hey Dave,

When you mount the white/blue mazda the rear body mounts go on the front of the rear shock tower. When you mount the Blue MoHawk body the rear mounts go on the rear of the rear shock tower.

Guys, I was too loose in the rear on power so I layed my rear shocks in and stood up my front shocks. I got the rear ride height/droop set 4.5mm ride and 2mm total rear droop (carpet).

The When i went to stand up my fronts I can't get my ride height up to anything normal. The car is slammed like a brazilians '88 civic. I've tried every hole, the shocks are NOT binding. What happened? I mean i cannot even get my ride height gauge underneathe the front of the chassis! I've spent hours on this, anything helps!

Did you loosen your droop screws to allow more up travel so you can set the ride height?

...do you have the shocks attached to the suspension arm?

Check that there is enough clearance at the outside (hub) end of the camber link. If you have it on the outside hole, it could be binding against the hub.

Quick shock oil question, searched for a while but couldnt find the information I was looking for, could someone please explain the 'Shock' theories for me please or point me in the right direction.

If the track is smooth should I be running a thinner oil or a heavier?
If the track is rough should I be running a thinner oil or a heavier?
If the high bite is rough should I be running a thinner oil or a heavier?
If the low bite is rough should I be running a thinner oil or a heavier?
If its cold/hot outside should I be using thinner oil or heavier?
If I need to get more/less traction do I go thinner or heavier?

Just explain some general statements please, thank you so much in advance!

What thoughts do you guys have on aluminum screws for this car? The weight savings seems attractive. Are they strong enough for everywhere except the lower inner arm hubs?

If you post your setup I think quite a few people could help you fix your problem. As for your immediate issue, lengthen your shocks. Either unscrew the ball end on the shock shaft or use the longer ball ends that come in the T2'007 kit.

I don't use the aluminum, those things suck and are weak. I got the stainless set on ebay for $20 and its the BEST upgrade i ever did to this car.

Just found out I had some broken suspension peices, a bent inner hinge pin, warped aluminum suspension nut and a siezed screw that secured the nut to the bulkhead and a worn out susp holder that held the hinge pin.

I kept asking why my car never breaks even though I crash every 2 seconds, then this LOL!

Stainless isn't really an upgrade over standard screws.
