I use a .050 allen wrench to adjust the turnbuckles, if you have an L shaped one you can get better angles. Titanium turnbuckles do make it easier to adjust though

rims? you mean wheels?
no, it's not something you get with all kits, mostly larger companies throw them in as an extra. Lots of people who buy top end race kits stick to a certain type of wheel, so any kit items wouldn't get used.

Default HELP!!

I need some major help with the shocks. I have been trying to translate the pictures to the pieces on the shock parts tree but I can't understand plus I'm a little burnt out from work. Also the kit came with 2 different kinds(colors) of O rings clear and black which are which? Any help would be great and pictures would be even better.

Kevin
P.S. all you guys building kits too better pay attention to this response cause your gonna need it!!

Use the clear O-rings, the black ones are for the front one way diff, to stop the drive cups sliding out of the one way bearings.
