    Rear suspension arm mounts?

    I see a bunch of block with different degrees for the rear suspension arm mounts. They make 0, 1 and 3.5 for the blocks what is the difference?

    It's the amount of degrees in castor for the rear arms. It controls the amount of anti squat.

    Increasing the anti-squat angle will reduce the tendency of the rear end to squat under acceleration.
    This provides a little more forward bite, but at the expense of side bite and bump handling. I run a
    rough tight track that drifts well and use 1.5 blocks.

    Where do you get different pitch blocks? And will this help with the rear angle that tires have. Both my rear tires are pointing in?

    For the blocks-part #1934
    No, this won't help with toe in or toe out. I don't know where you run your truck, but toe in like
    you described is essential for dirt. I would suggest you read the manual for your truck as it will
    explain most these things and others, here's a link > Nitro-Slash

    I was assuming you were talking about the shims under the mounts because of
    the use of the 3.5 designation, the mounts themselves don't go that high. The
    shims for anti squat do. The arm mounts control toe in, adjustable from 0 to +/- 1.0*
