Some spare arms, steering knuckles, a spare shock tower, black spring set, diff rebuild kit, rubberneck bumper and some extra torx screws if you plans to stick with them. The car comes pretty darn hopped up as it is.

Also, make sure you get the rubberneck bumper. If you break with this bumper, you hit something really hard, or really weird.

I'm confused about the toe-in spacers. Are the .5 degree spacers supposed to be exactly half as thick as the 1 degree spacers?

I got a bag of the 1 degree spacers, but I think they're .5 degree, becuase they're thinner than the bag I got a while back to shim out the front of the car. Combining two of them is thicker than the 1 degree spacer, so that's not an option. They're absolutely, definitely not the same as the first bag I got though.

For what it's worth, this bag had the old Corally logo, and the last one I got had the new one. I don't know if they both said they're for the Assassin or not, but I got the one listed on the RDX parts page both times. COR79126.

Measure them with some digital calipers. My 1 deg ones are about .8mm and the half deg ones are .4mm.

Two of those are full swaybar kits...I'm not sure of the part #'s for the 1.6's though.

The other two are just the bars themselves. To get an idea of which is which, the 1.3 mm bar SETS are #79412 and 79413. The 1.3 mm bars are 79422 and 79423.

Okay, so I'm slightly losing it I guess. All of my shims are right around .80mm, as you stated. But, it appears that two different styles of washers were used for the shims, one with square edges and one with rounded edges. Keep in mind the first two washers came from one bag of 1 degree shims, and the third washer came from a different bag. They're all the same size, but look pretty drastically different to the naked eye. It's not as apparent when you're this close, but they still look quite a bit smaller.
