    40 front with medium spacer.
    50 rear with large spacer.

    Everyone has a their own opinion as to what works best, just mess around with different settings to find the setup for your driving style.

    i like the light weight stock stuff, mainly because i drive over very rough ground and heavier oil bounces the car around, also if your going to run a heavy weight i'd get aluminium shock caps

    What weight oil do they include with the big bore kit? I just dumped it in, mine didn't say anything that I could find. I think the stock oil was softer.

    1 hole pistons with 30wt for the front and 2 hole piston with 50wt for the rear. I like how this is handling over any thing i have tried so far.
