When the outer bulkhead holes are used without any shims, approximately what shock tower hole does it equate to?

From the pictures it looks about equivalent to the top shock tower hole... which isn't ideal as I generally only adjust down from there rather than up. It looks like it would be difficult to get a more angled link with these mounts.

Those upper bulkheads look great! And they already match my blacked out car I will definitely get a set of those when there out

The lowest position is about where the middle hole is on the tower with the black ball studs. You can always also use a ball end with a lower profile. We are working on some lower profile studs as well. These should allow you to have an even more angled link, if that is what you like. You can still also fit about 4mm under the outside stud, combined with no shims under the outside hole, you end up with REALLY angled linkages. If you want to raise your roll center that much, you really are better off changing roll center blocks. It is much more effective.

From our personal experience testing, we never liked the lowest hole on the tower, but that is a total to-mey-toe/ toh-mah-to thing though, I am not one to say what works for you and what does not.

the center hole for the TC6 is slightly bigger than the TCX. I tried it last night.... what you can do is wrap a thin strand of Teflon tape around the shaft for the tcx and it will fit perfectly
CT can I swing buy today??

I guess, Frank answered already But you could also use a TC6 shaft I guess. They are 10mm diameter pistons, so they should fit the majority of 10mm shocks out there. Also, we will double check, since the AE stock pistons is probably what Frank tested and those tend to fit a bit loose.

Frank, you can come by as long as it is before 4, I am going out of town to a race in Lousiana today.

So these will fit TRF Shocks? I tried googling and no results.

What is the diameter of a TRF Shaft? I know they are 10mm bore correct?

The TC6 has a 3mm shock shaft and a 10mm piston diameter. If the TRF has these dimensions, then they should work.
