not the setting that the droop blocks are used to set it.
it's the one that you measure the chassis at rest and then lift the chassis til the wheels come off the board and measure again. it shows how to do it in the setup book but doesn't give a starting or basic droop amount.

Knuckles and hubs. Arms seem to hold up pretty well.

Make sure you replace the front bumper with a p-dub/parma. It is a lot better than the stock one and will really save the front end.

They fit just fine, but they seem to be a little wide. It almost touches the chassis. I sanded mine down, made it thinner. Which was not necessary but I'm kind of picky like that.
