a general setup question for you guys, im trying to use josh cyruls setup (sorta) on my FK but i cant seem to get the ride height low enough. I dont have any pre-load on my shocks and when running 5mm droop i cant get low enough. Is there something im missing here? I figured its shock location, but im using the same as on the sheet. Would it be the height of my foams?

Could be the height of your foams as you said. Why are you running such a high droop? Isnt Cyrul's droop low? around 1 or 2?

Could also be shock collars (lower part) try associated ones and they lower the ride height as well i believe.

hes got 5mm in the rear, 0 up front.

Im sure this wont be an issue once i hit the asphalt. I'll look into those AE shock supports, ive also heard the team tamale supports work well too.

I would keep it the same, no reason to keep upgrading the T1R, its a great kit out of the box i have had 2 and i kinda liked the long arms on them.

But if you wanted to buy the short arms you can, but you need to then buy the hinge pin holder set i think.

Take the black insert where the bearing meets the diff/oneway/spool whatveer you have and turn it counter-clockwise if i am correct, ill have to double check. Its in your manual if you have it still.
