I honestly don't know. Since the front and rear use different mounting holes on the arms and towers I don't think they'll match up but I've never tried it myself. The stock front tower's mounting holes are higher than the rear but we usually use a more inner mounting hole on the arm for the front as well.

In your original post didn't you say inline steering blocks... when you get the package, it's going to say Inline Front Steering Block (non-trailing type); and will have a 0 on them.

Lightbulb Well doh.....it can't be that simple surely....

The shock length off the car minus the shocks length at ride height is the droop amount in mm?

Yeah ok it was late and it just occured to me or the penny finally dropped as the saying goes.

I had the same problem! It depends on where you mount the hub carrier, I mounted mine on the bottom hole so I had to crank the shock collars all the way down. Another guy mounted his in the top hole so his are barely down. Also what shock ends are u using?

Hey Matt, do you know what piston is compareable to the rayspeed 1.1, and what is the diff between running the front hub carrier in the top or bottom hole. Thanks in advance and also thanks to everyone who spoke their advice.
