That is what I figured from the couple guys that I've seen running them. I'm sticking with the stock arms

Well just got the kit and I am in the process of putting it together.

For some reason manual calls for 3k rear diff but mine came with only 5k. So I drove to AE and they gave me a 3k bottle for free. Good people.

42/12 HTC front and rear is good. Takes some low end punch out, making it easier to drive.

Why is this happening? If the suspension is unloaded up on the stand the way it is , the left rear side does not spin. But when is on the ground it is spins fine. I checked my diff and is assembled correctly.

The video link doesn't work, but it sounds like you have something binding when the suspension is at full droop.

Fixed.

It was the pin on the cva. I guess it was not sitting proparly. I took it out and insert the pin in another hole and all good.

Car is done. Need to paint the body and break in the engine.
