Neil, what up my man, I have a question
you had or have the evo2 with the short
arms now you have the factory kit, what is the difference in handling if there is any
the reason why I ask is I just went to the short arms on my evo2 but did not get the time to test it yet, but if there is not much difference in either kit I will not get
the factory, thanks man.

Default Ride height

I just went to the short arms on my evo2
and the front shock tower for foams but
what I realize is the ride height is hard to set I run 5mm rear 4.5mm front with the
short arms I can't seem to go that low
with say 58mm tires foams, the front
will only go to 5mm with 56mm tires and
the rear I would go almost to the last
tread on the shocks to get the ride height, my droop front is 1mm and rear 2mm, need info please.

Hey Doc
I just received the factory kit and last night finished with the chassis prep. Today I intend to begin assembly. As far a handling compared to the Evo2 w/ short arms, I can not say at this time simply because I don't know. This weekend will be it's testing, and hopefully I will have positive results. Like all new cars, there are always the "new car blues" where things go wrong when you don't expect them too. I'll let you know what happens.

Dr. Smooth try and see if u can get a few more twists on your shock ends. It is tough but you might get the extra clearance you need. Good set of pliers will help do the trick.

check to make sure that your dropp screws are no keeping you from setting the ride height

Theisgroup, my droop is already low
1mm front 2mm rear should I go lower
than that or run no droop.

sorry was reading your post wrong. We have a guy local that mills a lower shock retainer that we are using to set lower ride heights.

Theisgroup, thanks for the info, but I am
going to back the end of the shock down I might get a few mm by doing that.

Be careful screwing in the Ti screws into the alum bulkheads. Without a barrier, the two metals will fuse.

What he said - you'll need to oil them with a drop so they will back out.

Personally, I use all steel with the black oxide coating to prevent that same issue. I'm only .5 oz over the mass limit so no big deal.
