I answered you on Fbook already but yea donít need much. Iíve been driving it for months havenít broke anything. Drive line pins are thing that wears faster so maybe get spare center drive line or some extra pins to replace them.
Car is amazing drives better then anything Iíve driven.

Default Rear ride height

Hey guys just picked up a D817 v2 from a friend and I canít seem to get the rear ride height higher then 27mm. Itís on blue springs with 40wt oil and 5x1.5 pistons. The collars are maxed out to the point where if I turn it anymore the collar will be off the thread and floating on the shock body. Everything has checked out to be perfect on my rebuild. Shocks are the right length and everything is where it should be, so I have no idea whatís wrong. All I wanted to achieve was one of David Ronnefalkís setups set at 28mm rear height.

Any help would be great!

maybe wrong springs on rear? Maybe wrong shock shafts in shocks?
do you have small tower on it?
maybe you donít have the longer shock shaft ends on ?

I think I may have figured it out! The HB driver installed the wrong shock ends on the shock. Mine read 20mm when they should be 25mm. Hopefully once I get them it solves the issue!

thanks for help guys!
