    Suspension pins arnt long enough on my RPM's?

    Hi I have noticed my suspension pins arnt long enough on my rpm arms.There isn't enough of the pin sticking out the other side to get the c clip on.Is that normal?

    No. Not normal. The Maxx has different pin lengths it uses for each arm being as theyre widths are all different. Are you using the right pin? What brand are the pins?

    Flm has hardened pins to fit the rpm arms.

    All the pins are the same length.Well the two longer ones are the same and the two shorter are the same.The pins are the ones that came with the RPM arms but I bought them a few years ago and never fitted them.Thanks for the heads up about the FLM ones but not sure if I can get them in the UK.

    Yes, it's a known "issue"... Buy the titanium ones from Lunsford, perfect fit!

    Some filed/dremelled down a bit of the plastic on either side to get the C clip to fit.
    Guide books aren't part of the packaging.

    That's what I was thinking of doing.I was thinking of dremeling them like Trax say but I think the screw in pins will be easier.
