    Are your caliper mounts are on backwards?? Brackets and calipers are the same for DRW or SRW.

    Is that RTV silicone between the steering arm and bottom of the block? If so, you should take those back off and clean them off. There should NOT be anything of the such on there.

    X2 The stuff could breakdown and cause the steering arm the become loose and possibly break the bolts.

    This was just discussed in Mannys thread. It is acceptable to put a small amount between these things and let it squeeze out. As per Mannys thread- it calls for it in the ORD instructions. Either way I am going crossover in the next couple weeks so it'll all be tore down again.
