Default NTC3 Kit. help with suspension arm

If any of you are familiar with the Team Associated NTC3 kit maybe you can help. I am at the point where i am putting the left from arm onto the car. Now I screwed in the arm to the transmission case like it says and the bottom of the lower arm. but when i turn my drive shaft the suspension arm will move to the right. it wont just stand still. now if i turn it to the left or right (the suspension arm, like if i was turning the car while driving) and i turn the drive shaft it will force itself straight or back to the right. i stopped working on it at about 10:30pm last night and havent touched it since them so when i get home i might take the suspension arm and re do cause maybe i meesed up with putting in a bearing or washer or the pivot balls. but if anyone has a suggestion, let me know. Its kind of hard to describe, but just picture in your mind if the car was being driven that the arm would want to snap to any direction when the drive shaft starts to turn.

Default servos

Got another question. When installing the servos (the steering servo for example) it says to put the horn on 1/8th of an inch from straight. that gives it a slight angle. But is this position from the nuetral on the servo? because when i took the screw of to mount the horn the servo moved a bit so i dont know from which point they want me to do it.

You should have your battery and receiver connected turn it on and set your remote in neutral position...

You don't need to cover the reciever battery, it will be just fine exposed......
