I've always used the low-profile bladders. For me, they're easier to bleed and set the rebound.

Drilling the caps have always worked best for me. It allows the bladder to work independently and makes them more consistent because air can't get traped behind the bladders. I like the plastic shocks better than the aluminum also!!

ive heard the plastic ones are better, but why? seems like something else to break. i dont really have any complaints about my stockers, though the rebound setting is the most fiddly thing. i might trill the caps and be done with it.

The plastic ones are more consistent in higher temperatures, the oil doesn't heat up and become thinner.

Also easier to set rebound.

I really like the plastic shocks on my NT1 they're great.

Hmmm, let me know if you see something is wrong.

Great pictures, it looks like xray changed the alu front axle holder to be longer at the side. Can you post a picture from that side? Is it the one with the plastic bearing holders? And does it need a shorter plastic bushing to hold the side spur?? Greetz

Alu front axle holder???

Not sure which one u referred to.
But as far as I know, nothing has changed much (in term of dimension) since NT1 2011, 2012 & Pro.
Between them, difference are in chassis design, graphite top plate & option parts.

OK, i know what you mean now.
About the photo, sorry as I don't have my car with me now.

Yes, the alu front middle shaft holder (part# 335721) is a different design now (compared to what you see on the website).

- Overall dimension is still the same.
- it still comes with 2 plastic holder for 2 bearings.
- main different is you don't need to use the locating collar because no distance between bearing (at outer or left side) & the 25T (or 26T) pulley.

Hope you understand.
