I've seen some XRAY drivers using some sort of shim in the roll bar link. What is that specifically? I assume it is to keep the length of the link equal left to right...

Dane,

Yes it is to keep the sway bar end links the exact same length and not have to worry about them as much.

What size? Countersunk or regular old shim?

Thanks for the answer dude!

If you check out the assembly manual, when they're doing the links for the front and rear the specify a 1mm difference, so to make it easy, use a 1mm washer, such as the spare plastic ones in the kit.

1- Pop the outer hingepins out and flip the hubs up out of the way. Remove the shocks and swaybar links. You should have the rear arms isolated now. Raise the arms and drop them to be sure they are free. Make sure they move at least a tiny bit between the pin mounts too.

2- If all is good with lower arms, remove the axles from the hubs and replace the outer hinge pins. Now check ROM (range of motion). Sometimes the upper camber links will bind on the spacers between the link and hub. A little trimming with xacto will fix that.

3- If ROM is still ok and all is free, replace the swaybar links and recheck for binding.

4- With shocks still off, replace the axles in the hubs. (quickest way is to pop the outer hingepin back out) Now check for bind again. If you now have a bind, try checking with blade horizontal in outdrive, then vertical. Does the amount of bind change? If it's binding, check that both sides are binding the same amount. Now start making the camber link longer until the bind is gone. Repeat on other side. Replace the shocks, set the ride height and check the camber. No matter what the camber is, report back here what your findings are. If, in fact all your parts are straight from the kit and assembled correctly, the only way the blades would be binding from being seated too deep in the outdrive is if the outdrive slots were machined incorrectly. However, the chances that both outdrives (which are machined at different times) have faulty machine work is hIGhly unlikely...

Hope this helps you drill down your problem
Hey thanks Bigdog! I check my diff balls and I grabbed the pack of larger diff balls. Problem fixed. It's still tight fit but there is no binding now through the full compression. My fault!!!! lol Over looked it.

What Johnny W said is correct. 1mm will get it done. If you dont have any 2mm is OK too.
