i just counter sunk the graphite spacer and used longer screws, so that the screw goes thru the spacer, arm and castor block... That if i do break an arm i dont have to have a drill and counter sink for every arm

Depends on what side you put your graphite piece. I have mine on the opposite side of the saver from the ball stud.

if you put it on on the back you haven't changed anything
on the front you change it a bit.

no, you want the full surface flush.
this iv found anyways works the best for impact.
i am waiting for the new front bracing that looks realy sweet.

not at all the spacer is bolted to the arm.. the front arm screws go thru the spacer in the arm.. If you use the crc height adjusters that are cut, just lossen the arm screw a few turns and slide in or out the thin spacers..Even with a 41 mill front tire the graphite never comes out..

arm screws are the same, you use the longer screw in the front castor block hole (originally in the rear hole) and you need a 2 mill longer one for the rear hole...
