INSTALLATION REFERENCE


Basically, it's pretty easy and straight forward and you'll see what I'm talking about once you get the sets in you hands. Both the front and rear camber link spacers (stand-offs) are the same size.

Here's a couple shots of the rear linkage with heims and stand-offs:

NOTE: The one I have pictured is pre-production. The machined cut-out for the spring will be longer on the production pieces. ****** Pre-production rear Camber Link shown*****

Each one of the smaller spacers go on either side of the outer heim. Once installed, they equal 16mm and slide right into the hub. The taller spacer is for the inner heim and is 15.6mm. The "meat" of the heim goes toward the bulkhead just like stock.

Here's a shot of the front camber linkage and spacers. The spacers are installed exactly the same as the rear. The stand-offs are exactly the same size as the rear. You can tell the difference from the rear linkage by the machine cut-out on the rear linkage for shock spring clearance.

Now, here's the front steering tie-rods. These also have the same idea where the outer heim uses 2 stand-offs and the inner uses 1. Please pay attention here. The outer heim will use the two shorter spacers, one on each side of the heim. Once installed in the heim, the total length will be 16.8mm.

The remaining spacer is used for the inner heim and is 13mm in length. When installed, the stand-off part will be on the top of the heim! Here's some pictures:

That's basically about it. Couple of things to note;

This is something that IRP suggests and is a great rule of thumb. When removing any nylon lock nut, you should replace it with a new one when re-installing the part. So, on all 4 inner camber links, it is highly suggested to use brand new lock-nuts!

I suggest laying everything out before starting the install. Not only does it give you a chance to look at all the outstanding workmanship but also gives you a chance to look over everything and make sure you have all the spacers matched up with the correct heim and position on the rig.
