The only issue is the HB pulley is out of stock and TQ doesn't list an aluminum 16t pulley. Maybe it's just out of stock, too?

One thing I'll say about the instructions is the wacked order of assembly. I would definitely put together the pulley assemblies on page 8 before assembling the bulkheads. I was warned the spring pins can be a PITA and they were. Of course, if you order the aforementioned aluminum pulleys then assembly becomes a helluva lot easier.

Thanks for the manual guys !

Can someone tell me if they are running the same problem I have. At full throttle when I turn my front end shakes like crazy. I already checked and nothing is binding? It only does when I have wheels installed if I take the wheels off it does not do that.

It's most likely your CVDs if you're running the stock ones. By design they don't allow the D3 to steer beyond a certain angle without chatter. The ultra wide angle axles alleviates this issue to some degree.

Kind of a funny story while we're talking about the chattering. I'm running the UWA axles and was surprised to see some chattering at moderate angles. Turns out the cheap faux brake rotors I installed were rubbing the lower control arms!

So should I buy the uwa or the double joint axles? Uwa are $19.99 and double joint are $26.99? Witch ones will remove the chattering completely?

Excellent question. I would imagine the DJ axles are better than the UWA, but I only have experience with the UWA so I can't confirm.

Guys , how do I adjust my rear toe-in go make it straight..I.e zero?
Is there a rear suspension mount available? I know there is a front suspension mount with zero deg but none for the rear..if I understand this right, I should get more of a vertical sliding action with this mod?
Also with negative camber for the rear..should this be closer to zero or more camber for drifting?

no..I would suggest the UWA....the DJ will not give you as wide angle as possible.
I have the SSKs DJ and did not give me the wide angle that the steering is capable of.

So, get the UWA.

you can get the zero deg mount.

I am using some rear toe in though...I think that it is better. plus, I am running negative camber all around...that will be preference for you...I think 3* negative in the rear for me...and will depend on your suspension layout and tuning.
In the front, I am running even more aggressive negative camber

and all this will need lots and lots and lots and even more LOTS of PRACTICE!

What are the mounts called for the adjustments for the rear toe in? I can only find front zero mounts
