The instructions manual is very clear. Correctly building the shocks is a very important. The little details can make the difference between a good or a bad handling buggy.
My build notes:
- To make the installation of the spacers, bushings and orings easier, I use the shock shaft as a guide to align and to insert them into the bottom of the shock body.
- Apply a good amount of Team Associated Green Slime on the orings, this will prevent leaks.
- Make sure both front and rear shocks have the same length. When inserting the shock shaft into the eyelet, stop when the top of the eyelet completely hides the thread.
- When the shocks are installed, compress the suspension and make sure there is no binding.
