I tap them with a screw driver on the back.
But yes takes some patience.

hey guys , I need some advice ...

at EVERY club race I seem to have problems with the lower arms - fronts or rears ... the hole where the ball screw (the one that holds shock cups) goes in breaks / cracks ... its so annoying ...

I have gone through so mane lower arms that I lost count by now...

why is this happening? It almost seems like its a very soft material ...

I've only had this problem twice after a big, big shunt ( lots of air time )

The new kits ( latest batch ) has a longer ball stud that screws into the arm - the part # is 115029.

Before these came out, I would super glue the ball into the arm - it helps, but try and get yourself these.

Quick question. Is there any way to modify the front one-way to make a solid axle? I have a few oneways i'm not using.

thanks for the tip .. I'll check it out ... do Kfactory make arms for the G4RS ? maybe from some stronger material?

The problem I am having is NOT the ball studs coming out but them cracking the arm/hole .... I'll post few pics tonight to illustrate ...

I was thinking of putting a STRONG cable tie around the two hole bit in hopes to help sturdying that whole section ... dont know ... its just annoying loosing shocks and springs ... costs a fortune!

Omarko - you could try boiling the arms for 10 minutes in hot water. Apparently this takes some of the brittleness out of the new arms. I gave it a go - it did not warp the arms at all nor did it makle them bind, but I sold the car before I had a chance to run it and see if it made a difference. It could be worth a try, along with a longer threaded ball stud as posted above.

It depends on the size of your shock piston holes - we are running anywhere from 50 - 60wt oil with the kit RS shocks , but the pistons have been drilled out to 1.2mm.
