50wt in front and 30wt in rear.

For springs I used 30lb front and 20lb rear.

Standard or offset hub carriers and which hole are the hubs in?

No front bar?

Front diff or one-way?

Center spool or one-way?

Are those the standard kit pistons? I don't remember

My TA05 is double one way and it was quick @ the Den, I just kept breaking outboard hinge pins. There's a former TL driver here this week and I plan to pick his brain on the car too.

Nope, I got what you said but your still wrong. 1 deg. rear toe bar with 1 deg hubs "flipped" will give you ZERO deg. toe-in. My point was that any time you flip the hubs it will reduce the amount of toe-in. Sorry for the confusion.

hey guys, another newbie question for you;

is there supposed to be a white O-ring that sits at the base of the top threads of the shock? (where the top cap would thread down to) I purchased my kit pre-assembled, and am suspect if these were assembled correctly. I'm thinking that these white O-rings might actually be for the spring preload adjusters....

thanks again.

the adjustment sleve that threads onto the shock body there is a channel on the top side of it. that is where you install that skinny white oring. this way when you adjust the tension it won't slowly work it's way up.
