On the AE shock end you have to trim 2mm off... but with the YOK ends and RS perch... you do not have to.

Hi! Zombies,

Okay, I am going to try the lower c-mount. But the rear is still well above ride height even though it is in the lower hole on the carrier. May I ask what shock mounting positions you are using?

Thanks,
Stu

Another way to lower ride height is to unthread the shock ends more. Though this does change the length of the shock, it allows the spring to sit lower on the shock, and thus lowers the overall ride height. Basically it gives you more usable preload.

Thanks for your help. Figured it out...actually had the shock cup upside down.

Ultimately, I ended up with the center facing upwards on the rears (upside right?) and facing downwards on the rear (upside down?) to get ride height and preload about right. Anyway, looks good now. Looking forward to trying these springs out on Sunday.

Yeah, I will be there. See you then.

Cheers.

YS-14575 Hot Pink 13.09
YS-1455 Hot Green 13.75
YS-1560 Dark Green 16.21
YS-1450 Hot Orange 17.68

Usualbe TC3 springs:
Associated TC3 Green 12.00
Associated TC3 Silver 14.50 Same as Rayspeed Silver
Associated TC3 Blue 17.00 Same as Rayspeed Blue
Associated TC3 Gold 19.50


Anti Roll Bar chart:
Colour Torsion Rate (N/rad) Equivalent rate at wishbone(lbs/inch)
Black 24.57 9.1
Silver 30.57 11.4
Brass 38.34 14.2
Copper 40.77 15.1
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Found the following at the Yokomo USA site:
Part# RS-05 Shock Spring, Yellow (Long-Type, 2 Ea) $5.25
Part# RS-06 Shock Spring, White (Long-Type, 2 Ea) $5.25
Part# RS-07 Shock Spring, Red (Long-Type, 2 Ea) $5.25
Part# RS-08 Shock Spring, Gray (Long-Type, 2 Ea) $5.25
Part# RS-09 Shock Spring, Blue (Long-Type, 2 Ea) $5.25
Part# RS-10 Shock Spring, Green (Long-Type, 2 Ea) $5.25

Compared to the stock spring lengths, the longer length of the Rayspeed spring allows for a more progressive spring rate.

Available in the following order of soft to hard: Green, Blue, Yellow, White, Red, Gray.

When using these springs on the MR-4TC SD with the stock shock ends, use Rayspeed Spring Cups (Part#RS-15).
