Love the RDX, thinking of shelfing my Xray for one.

Sorry if this has been asked... I really can't sift through 27 pages of posts! Sorry lol

If I do the switch, which parts will I need to spare up. Knuckles and hubs? I'd like to think I wouldn't be rough on such a nice kit, but the reality is that I'm sure someone else will hit me

Thanks in advance guys.

jka-I just wanted to know if you needed a diff or one-way. YOu have a PM!!

btw-if you decide on aluminum steering blocks-then get a few extra bearings for the hubs. Not required if you run the plastic steering knuckles. They are 5x9x3 bearings

Just got done building the kit this morning and started setting it up.. For some reason I got like 9mm of ride height in the front without any preload?? 58mm foams. I set the arms to 1mm of droop. Anyone got any suggestions? Has anyone else seen this? I switched to Xray spring pertches and now it's down to 5mm. I have it on #2 on the front like the instruction manual says...maybe I need to drop to 1, but that only will drop ride height down a few mm. Any suggestions appreaciated.

John

John, do you have the spring perches on backwards? They don't fit super-loose, so push on them and see if they come down.

No, I dont have them on backwards. It just seems like these spring pertches are really high.

The shock spring retainers are kinda high. I have the stock ones on my car with like 56mm tires and I am at 4.5mm. It is close. You want to stay between 4 and 5mm ride height anyways.
