smyka, running them off the chassis or off the bumpers? I can see where you can get the rear on the chassis but there's not enough room on the front arms to run then off the chassis.

Evicerator-Go with Squier??

lazboy-I am not sure what you are doing wrong. I use .060 in my shocks and then unscrew the shock end to get the droop right.

smyka-THANK GOD HE IS BUYING A HOUSE!!!!!!!lol

Default droop screws

not we run them both off the chassie if i can find some one with a digital camera i will post a picture of it but if you look at the front of the chassie you will seee a rib that goes down each side you need to flaten out about 1/16 of the end of it (i run long front wheel base) then drill a hole in the front arm and tap it their does not look like a lot of room but their is enought to make it work (just like the tc3 before they did the new chassie) i use 4/40 screws to do it but if you want you can go smaller than that ..

Kraig-No the BK2 diffs have a wider bearing spacing so it will not fit in the chassis. The screw and the spring are too long so they will probably not fit either.

lozi-I usually do not not touch mine....however I have used the serpent oil on them and it seems to help.

Thanks Mark, I just finished doing the rear and it worked out great, now if I can just talk myself in doing the front. Well here's a pic of the rear, it was alot easier than I expected.

Well I talked myself into it, couldn't resist the thought of never touching a shock again for droop Now I just gotta remember to bring the drill, charger and bits to the track incase I break an arm

Looks good. It does look like like that could be a week spot on the arm.

Not really jkerr, if the screw was not in there then yes it would be weak but with the screw in there it is as strong as it was without the droop screw.

That's true. I may just have a project on my hands this week. Will be nice to set droop the easy way.

Just be carefull jkerr, as-as you can see there isn't that much room on the arm so if you crack a side drilling out the hole it will be weaker even with the screw in there. I made pilot holes first with a dremel then followed with a drill bit followed by another that was bigger and finally threaded the screw in. Also watch your hingepin hole as you don't want to cut into that either, just have patience and it should workout. Oh and I just used the normal droop screws that came in the kit.

I've got a very nice drill press to do it with. I hope I kept those droop screws
