All of the stuff that you have listed will work from the R2 ..and I Know the EXCEL Shaft works for the R2 and R3 ...they are the same..just a different part # thats all

drive shaft holders and dogbones are the same for the R2 and R3 so no problem there.
rear hubs on the R3 have slightly different roll centres I think and the c-hubs may be slightly different too. They'll fit but effect the geometry slightly.

No idea what the team bomber thing is that you mention?

I remember that Dave had mentioned that he use 6 pcs of the offset ball in his car... 4 pcs on the rear arm and 2 pcs on the front arm... but I wasn't too sure... I have bought the balls but a bit confused on which side to intall them in the from arm... should it be towards the rear or towards the front??? which one?? If someone got the pics , maybe I can have a look...
