your kit should supply these shims for you...or you lost em'?

the kit doesnt supply enough shims for the fine tune.

you might use some thicker shims from somewhere as you need quite thick shims in between the engine nut and the clutch bell inner bearing.

ran my car at on a low grip parking lot tight track, when rear tyres were wearing out half and the rear bottoms out, so i increased the spring tension using the shock adjuster to raise the rear ride height, but it spun when i exit the corners under hard acceleration...any idea how to fix this?
(rear diff wif 100K grease)

OK now I'm confused...step 24

On the uppoer rear arms I can't tell which belongs on the upright and which goes on the rear body mount? Silver on the body mount, black on the upright? or the other way around? Silver on the rear body creates less of an angle.

I tried looking at some of the pictures of peoples cars here on the post and I've seen it both ways.

Furthermore my manual does state how long they should be...

Help,
Puma

black (non-threaded) should be on the hub side for ease of adjustment.

Thanks BTW I should of RTFM because it's written right there by the picture to use silver on the body mount....oops my bad

...but I still don't know what length they should be. I guess that will depend on what camber the wheels I set. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Puma

the collet works together with the flywheel and it should come with the kit.
