I went to clean some shocks yesterday as it's been quite a while and found that all 4 bladders were bad. They are stock shocks but have the big bore caps on them. I guess when I put them on and tightened them all the way, it cut off part of the bladder and in two of them, the bladder was actually inside the shock body instead of on top. Anyway, I need new ones and looked on the blow ups for the VXL and couldn't find what they were. Anyone know?
Also, when I go to rebuild the shocks, should the shock caps only screw down most of the way but not all the way down?
I guess another question is should I rebuild the whole shock? The shafts are bent on the rear shocks so I will need to replace those. I have spare e-clips and such so I might as well rebuild them but what else do I need to do that? O-rings?
Any advice would be great. Thanks!
EDIT: I saw the shock rebuild kit is only $2.39 on Tower and has the bladders and o-rings. Which brings up another question. Does this rebuild kit only do one shock or does it do two? Two would be excellent. I'll have to see if my LHS has them in stock.
