2- Depends.... CGM or SSG?

3- try http://www.yokomo.tk it's maintained by one of this thead's posters... forgot his handle

4- I run a similar setup, stock outdrives or one way and Ti bones up front, and stock outdrives tobee Al bones rear... no problem for the past year. Just don't use Al bones up front, it's too light a metal... I think I read that Delrin outdrives are not considerably lighter... they're just highly expensive

Thanks for the help! It is a CGM (rolling weight?). Steve...

I think the CGM weighs a hefty 1600gms on the scale when rtr... it's a sensitive topic

bone angle for removal... now that I think about it, i'm not so sure you just have to pop a camber ballcup... you might actually have to open the diff case anyway... which is easy as 1-2-3 on the SD don't touch these stupid rings anyway.

OK, my next stoopid question is, do you stick the droop gauge underneath the part of the arm where the pin goes through the carriers or the very outermost edge where it juts out ? I've got the SSG

I measure droop from the bottom of the hub carrier. I think that's the most common way.

2.35:1 is the internal ratio.

DO YOU MEASURE DROOP WITH THE SHOCKS ON OR OFF THE CAR?

Both, I think. It takes a while to get the droop right not using the droop screws.
