This corresponds with the "Model Filenames" section. This setting uses the numbers -1 to 18 and determines which model is used. If no models are used, this number should be set to -1, otherwise from 0 to 18. In this case you want the number corresponding with the pin prm.

The Offset from center of car for base of axle (the base is the point where axle is attached to chassis of car, usually the bottom edge of the chassis). This only applies to axles that are displayed.

This is only used when the axle is displayed. This is the length of the axle model in RV units from origin (base/bottom edge of chassis) to wheel centerpoint. If an existing axle model is used, use of the value defined in the original car's spring section is recommended. The length does not affect handling.
