Also what size are the rear axel bearings? I traded for a car and they were not with it.

Default side to side ride height question

My REV4 is set up with 4.5mm front ride height and 4.5 mm rear ride height. All tires are trued so rear tires are same dia. and front tires are same dia. (like they should be) I have lowered front steering arms that are exactly lowered .033 each with
a .033 spacer on top. My question is the front of the rear pod measures 3.5mm on the left rear and right rear measures 4.mm. How is ths corrected?

That sounds like you have two different bearing holders installed in your pod bulkheads, or perhaps you're running one lowered bulkhead and one regular bulkhead?

Take a close look at the rear axle, is it exactly parallel to the lower pod plate?

I have a setup question on my Rev. 4. It pushes in most corners on a high bite technical track. I am running CRC Procuts Purple front Grey rears and going half and half on the Paragon Ground Effects. My front springs are .22 and i have Mugen 7000 oil in my dampener tubs. i have 35 weight oil in the shock and an Associated blue spring. my roll out is around 1.83 and my rear tire size in 1.730. my ride height is 3 mm. if you could help me with my set up so its dosnt push as much it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Aaron

same IRS 3.0 bearing holders/lowered IRS pods - wonder if the front arms(old skool) need shimmed to achive proper height (I don't have this problem with my 12L4 (also has IRS lowered pods but has the new front end which I did machine to acheive the same exact side to side ride height. And if the old skool are different would it be better to shim rather than machine then because of the built in castor?

Try .20 springs and/or 3/4 of paragon, that should help.

Good luck

The old style front arms vary somewhat but most provide even axle height. Check the installed axle height before doing anything.

I wouldn't try to machine the front arms. Many have tried and it is difficult to do accurately (read: no one has done right it yet). BTW, the front arms have no caster built in, they are 0 deg.

If I read your original post correctly, you are measuring the the ride height at the front of the rear pod where the links attach? FWIW that measurement is off on most of my cars but it doesn't seem to affect the car. I check the ride height at the front and rear, and at the rear of the chassis plate.

Remove your IRS pod plates and check them to make sure they're still straight. Occasionally they will bend, and this places stress on the top pod plate, and in some cases it can actually tweak the rear pod. I've seen this happen on a lot of different chassis.
