What Dan meant was if you were to buy them seperately at the hobby stores. :-)

You are going to use both of the 3-hole ones and one of the 2-holes. If you insert the 2-hole into the 3-hole and they form a straight line vs. 90-degree, then you have the right on.

I think there is an error in the instructions. In secton E-3, the diagram is wrong where the arrow points for the ball studs. The picture is correct. The part with the three hole have some raised plastic. You have to use some nippers to nip them off. If you ever had a Yok, refer to their instructions. Just a few pages back in this thread, there were some close up pictures.

Section E-6 has a picture of the final assembly.

Another thing to watch out for is in sec. F3. Between the shock tower and the bulkhead, there should be an aluminum spacer. Orange colored in your case. The photo doesn't show it that well and if you don't read Japanese, you tend to miss it.
