How much off are you getting? If it's a lot, then it could be that your shocks need to be refilled and rebuilt.

The shocks should settle nicely when you compress it a little or a lot to the bottom.

I assembled my front knuckles tonight. On one of them, even with the wheel on and nut tightened, I can grab the wheel and move it back and forth about 0.3mm. This doesn't seem right because my rear ones nd my other front one does not do this? I've tried everything I can think of. What should I do?

I've tried pushing on the axle cup. Maybe the aluminum hex adapter wasn't maachined deep enough for the hardened pin to go in deep enough?

Use .2 dont use .3mm, small play is good for bearing health.

Rich, can you see which part is moving back and forth? I suspect that you did not tighten enough the pivot ball aluminum retaining nuts. Unscrew the pivot balls from the arms. Tighten the aluminum retaining nuts. Loosen it little by little till (1/8th of a turn at a time) until you get the most free movement of the pivot ball without binding.

I know Alex quite well - for quite a long time I was his photographer and unfortunately, like so often is the case in racing, the nice guys don't quite make it. You guys are only seeing the "star" side of Alexs, but I can tell you that the guy is very genuine and kind - one of the nicest guys I met on the race track during my time there.
In F3 he was mega quick - I saw him overtake a guy on the outside of a turn on the last lap - it look like he was going to spear off the track big style, but somehow he got around the guy - it was the most impressive piece of driving I have seen in F3.
Unfortunately, shortly after this Alex had a very big accident at Spa - he was luckly he wasn't killed! After this accident he was never really the same again. Personally, although he never mentioned it, I think this affected him really badly - I'm not surprised either!!
The step up to F1 was wrong for him, perhaps if he'd had a couple more years in F3000, he would have settled down.
End of speech

Knuckle is not installed on car yet. I can grab the "axle cup" the thing with the threads for the wheels. I can grab that and wiggle it 0.6mm back and forth. I just measured it. I even put the wheel on and its the same thing.

I measured the depth of the groove that is machined into the aluminum wheel hex adapter and both are the same depth. So there must be something else off? I'll try and measure both knuckles to see if they are the same thickness??
