Some suggestions Marcos, the countersunk screws holding the upper arm bracket should not be too tight, use locktite on the nuts but just nip them up, if you put pressure on them the bracket will fail.
If you run the caster all the way back (both spacers at front) then remove the eye on the spacer so that the diff outdrive does not grab it and rip it out.

More shims will give you more camber angle change for better rear grip cornering.

For example on smooth track: More shims stiffer rear roll bar and springs
Bumpy track: Less shims softer rear end no roll bar

Cheers

Ziggy do you know the part number that accepts the bearings? In the manual it looks like ball ends on both ends of the upper rear camber link.
