I lent someone my instruction manual for the CEFX C12 EVO2. Can someone please look at their instructions to see how many axle spacers are used on each side of the rear axle? Thanks in advance...

Regardless of what the directions say to do the best thing would be for you to locate the center line of your car and mark under the bottom plate. Once you have the center line measure from it to the left and then measure to the right. Shim it till you have the exactly the same measuremnts on both sides. You may have a few more shims on one side then the other bit that's O.K. as long as it measures out. I would run it to the max Roar legal 172"

Make sure you have tires on the car

I have shims the same thickness as the kit shims. Is that just for the left side?

Anyhow, I wanted to see what the instructions said, then I could just start from there to add shims to each side equally to take some of the guess work out of it.
