302045 is for the front of the front suspension and the rear of the rear suspension.
I believe 302048 is the optional one piece version for the front of the rear suspension instead of the kit two piece.

30 2045-O are the Forward Front suspension mounting block and the Rearward Rear suspension mounting block

30 2047-O is the one piece Front Rearward mount [originally a 2 piece on the mount on the T3, standard on the T3'11 and T3'12]

30-2048-O is the optional one piece Forward Rear mount

Default Front rollbar mounts

Hi,

Ive noticed there is a fair amount of diagonal movement in the front rollbar mounts, i tightened the grub screw so that the rollbar drops freely but there still seems alot of movement. Its a brand new kit so the mounts can't be worn. I didnt know if perhaps i was just unlucky and got a bad set or perhaps i need to buy the rollbar collars?

Any ideas.....?

Do you mean the side to side movement at the actual mounts on the bulkheads?

Mine have very little play at that point.
Remember to disconnect the ends of the bars from the 'ball ends' and links to check that they are just loose enough to drop under their own weight.

The grub scews are meant to eliminate the up/down play, while still alowing them to drop freely.

However, there is a little play in them side to side.

If you feel it is too much for you, you can get the xray collars ...

An inexpensive option is something like this .. (double check the size as you'll probably want to size them for the thickest swaybar you would use .. maybe 1.6mm).

While this hint seems a little sarcastic and crass (sorry if I misinterpreted your intentions) it is very sound. I built up my T3 and being new to the on-road scene copied the build instructions as close as possible and they are simply the best out there. After the build I went through the car and setup it up from a setup sheet I got from a pro driver off the Xray site. Couldn't get the traction I needed and the car was difficult to drive.

I went back to the kit setup and the car came alive! It was well balanced and drove awesome. While it was short and a bit dismissive, following the instructions in this case is excellent advise!

Put a setscrew in the un-used hole in the rear uprights. This will prevent the other screw from pulling out during a hard impact.
