had a major problem with tweak on chassis, after various checks and tweaks discovered the king pins are different length.One is 3mm longer than the other.
Now this is a brand new kit and never noticed when building front end, checking
part numbers 1/12th and 1/10th same king pin.
Any explanation serpent.

have you checked all the king pins on the chassis to make sure you havent built it incorrectly?

Just screw each kingpin In until the front springs have equal preload and they will be fine, it's unusual to have kingpins of in equal length. Have you taken both out of the block and measured them ?
