Thumbs up Mbx6 rebuild help?

I apologize to those who tell me this is in the wrong forum, my only access is to rctech is my phone, making it extremely hard to use the site.

ANYWAY,

I love seeing builds of peoples cars and need some help on the rebuild of my mbx6. The front right arm (the entire thing) shifts a good 1/4 insh in either direction, how can I fix that?

Let's see some builds? Always cool to see a good build!

Hey, the kit comes with small plastic shims. Looks like a small horse shoe thingy. Use those to shim the front upper and lower arms either forward or backward. Also note that this is by design and it is use to tune caster in conjunction with the shimming of the upper front arms.

Lower front block (rear) might be worn out, the bushings in the front lower arm plate might be worn too.

I think the amount it shifts is too big for a few shims to correct..?

Is the play front to back or side to side? It shouldnt be tight front to back, but it should be sloppy either. A good 1/16 is ok. Just a "tic" tho
