    This thread tells you all about it mate.

    Do you have the TR combo tower/brace ? If so then there are some slight mods required but nothing major. I have the combi tower and IRC BB's fitted.

    Yes matey and 8mm drill through the cap at a slight angle, but NOTE the shock caps need to be drilled "handed" because they need to be drilled one way or the other depending which way the bleed screw is facing. Obviously the bleed screw needs to be on the outside. When you offer the shock into the TR brace it will become quite apparent which way the cap has to be drilled . It's nor really ideal to be drilling brand new caps to get them to fit the TR brace , but it's the only way your gunna get em to fit if you have the combi brace. It's all in the thread above mate

    ok mate, these pics i have just taken should help you understand which way the cap angle needs to be drilled.




    ok note how I have drilled the cap at a downward angle with the 8mm drill on this side with the bleed screw on the out side. Now obviously if I were to try and fit this shock to the other side it would not fit because the angle would be back to front ok ??



    Now to get the cap "barrel shaped" bush/insert into the angled hole of the cap . Note that you will have to grind down the length of the bush at one end to get it to fit into the recess of the underside of the brace.



    how it looks when its all fitted.
    Note the angle of the stud in relation to the cap.

    You may also note that for some reason I had to dremmell a bit out of the front end of the TR brace because it was catching the top of the cap. Not sure if anyone else had to do this . Mine are fitted to RPM arms.

    There is no mod required at all to fit the rear IRC BB's with the rear TR brace.

    Hope this helps

    Fcuk drilling them. I know it works but you don't need to. You can do this instead and its much better for the shock absorber and they fit just fine like this on TR shock towers and its a lot easier than drilling.

    Just to be clear handed means left and right hand, so the left shocks left handed right shock right handed 👍 so once done the mod not universal.
