They arent that bad to build. They will come assembled but i did go to thicker oil and it really was pretty easy. Just like all shocks, including the center shock, you do need to take your time but once they are built, its just set it and forget it. Much easier than having to relube kingpins every other run. That is as inconsistant as it gets.

pretty much. The lube usually thins out as it gets wiped off of the king pins as you run. You will rebuild shock much less than you would re lube king pins. Front springs will also not collapse like the strut front end springs.

I am getting there. I have to finish up a few things before I get the parts cut but everything is programmed for the CNC's and ready to run.

out of curiosity as it was mentioned earlier, how far away do you run the pivot ball from the rear axle?

Made good progress on the car. Getting ready to start machining the front end parts. This is what I have ready so far.
