I used them on the front of my 05 and had no problems. I did make sure to change both fronts. Also make sure to match your rear shocks overall length so you have 4 equal length shocks. I think I remember trying them in the rear and endsed up with complications with the lower shock retainer binding as it is allowed to sit lower on the shock with the shorter ends. I have not ahd one break in the last three weeks since I put them on and I have had my share of wrecks (enough to replace a couple c-hubs and a rear hub)

what do you suggest for a 90' oval with the stock 84 spur? Stock motor CO27's is what I run. With my TC4 I was 72/28


Thanks again guys, and cant wait to run it tomorrow, it was a dream to put togther. Only thing I dont like is we get screwed out of the multi-diff, and the crappy plastic shocks .

Thanks again guys,
Scott

Jason you have some great support here man! The T2 is a great car. But the Xray guys just can't seem to make the US customers happy.

Hopefully in a few weeks a BMI chassis will be under my car.

OK guys.

I just want to guage the reaction to this.

I am tooling up to begin producing *Adjustable Outboard Toe-In* aluminum rear hubs. They will be easy to adjust anywhere from 0-3 degrees in .5 degree incremets.

Also, I am working on the adjustable Front C-Hubs as well, which should go from 3-6 degrees in the same incremental adjustments.

So, what do you think?
(Yes, I have full CNC capabilities in my back yard)
