If you bought it from Steve, you'll have a suppliment sheet, and the small tube will have your steering bearings (courtesy of Steve also)

Bit of a shame..no steering bearings, thought it was an omission at first. The kit has got everything else, cant understand why no bearings for the steering. Oh well 'spose will have to pick some up from Demon before the weekend

Follow the supplement sheet as much as you can. A lot of calls I get with question regarding assembly of the car can be answered by paying closer attention to the supp. sheet.

Good luck and have fun with the car.

For the thrust bearing assembly (the smaller balls and washers) you woud want to use the Associated black grease. For the Diff balls and diff plate, you want to use the Associated silicone grease.

I didn't pay close enough attention at first, and I had to go back over a few things after I built the car, do pay attention to the suppliment, it's more helpful than it may look.

I was lucky and had an old HPI wrench for the turnbukles, to hold the turnbuckle itself I used a long body pin. a little grease on the thread will make things easier
