And do you know the part Numbers of the 0deg, 1deg and 2deg hub and what car they came with?
The lowest ones are those of the 414, the ones from the 415 are 1mm higher and those of the Evo 3/4 are 2mm higher than 414.

hey guys,
i got a question maybe someone can answer, i just ordered a dj suspension for my car, only problem is my car is a trf414... anyone know if i can make this work, i know i had to get the evo shafts ,axles and bearings, the only issue i can forsee is the damper stay, but this should be easily worked out with spacers. anyone with a clue if this can be done or will i be putting the dj system on ebay or buying a 415ms, i wont get rid of my 414, i had a 415 and liked it the 414 better.

I cant see why it wouldnt work, i would say you just need to play with driveshaft lengths, and spacing of the shock tower, make sure you take a pic when its finished.

of course, i think itll work, i mean the car uses the same arms and shafts as the 415 so it really shouldnt take to much engineering to get it working. its coming wed. so hopefully ill have pics by the week

Copied from the DJ suspension thread (since the 414 and standard 415 run the same suspension):

The 415 uses a 48.5mm hinge pin, the lightweight MS version hinge pin is only 46mm and the DJ arm is designed for the 46mm hinge pin on the EVO IV and 415MS.
There you go

Hi, yeh when I put My 415MS together I found it tweaked if the top deck wasn't tightened correctly. try loosening all the top deck screws and all the chassis screws and triple check and be very precise about how you tighten them and sit the chassis on a dead flat surface with shocks and roll bars disconnected, they have to be tightened in a perfect X pattern. Same with the chassis screws.

hmmm, unscrew every thing from the chassis, and sit the chassis by it self flat on a perfectly flat surface. If it is twisted, your up for a new chassis, if it sit's flat, you buggered something up when you built it.
also check the top deck isn't twisted.

I've only ever had the chassis tweaked on my once, and I just unscrewed all of the screws to relax all of the chassis, and left it overnight for it to go back to shape. Try that, then screw it together in X patterns like Jack2 suggested, and then I think you should be right. It fixed my tweak problem completely!
