It will stick a little. With little effort, it will free up.

This is what I do, too.

I do that also. Just have to make sure that you don't take away too much.

just run the car a few times and the binding should go away, at least this is what happened with mine and it is perfect now with little or no play at all. If there is really bad binding (which i doubt) then you may consider sanding the spacers a little.

Also try remounting the suspension arms - that can help, too. What I find with the spacers, is that the surface simply need to be "smoothend" off - i.e. the surface from the mold is a little rough and can cause some of the binding. I only ever use a very fine sand paper and simply rub the spacer a couple of times on the paper until the surface looks better.

But as Glide says - try running your car a little first as everything needs to bed-in. Then and only then, sand the spacers a little until everything works smoothly.

Cheers, Mark.

Sanding does help, a dremel will get faster results if you have a steady hand. A disaster if you have a heavy hand.

Just send them an email - they respond really quickly - even if they don't have it in stock, they get the stuff in really quickly.
I've placed orders a few times on a Sunday and had the parts delivered on the Thursday!!! Thats from Holland to Germany which is pretty good going
I don't order from virtually anyone else these days.

Also if there are items which they don't have on their website, let them know and they'll be added before you know it.

For example last week I wanted to order the Xray anti-roll bar kits - I couldn't find them on the site I emailed [email protected] and within a couple of minutes it was on the site, so I could place my order. A few days later my order came! You can't ask for better service than that.

What are you looking for? My LHS has a wall full 'o them [they are out of shock membranes].

Let me know [actual $$, tax,paypal & s/h; I'm not looking to make a dime] and I'll call them and let you know if they are in stock and when I could get them & sent.

BTW, they usually beat Stormer's hobbies prices by about 10%, which would make up the difference in the tax and help cover some of the other charges. Xray is a prdominant ran kit at the track, so he does pretty well by the racers and their commonly needed kits/parts.
