    97mm for front and rear, additional parts (rod ends and shock retainer) change the length for you

    if you are a racer, you might need all the list from Crusey to fine tune (front is lower, rear is higher, soft with grey springs and 35wt oil).

    If you are a basher and your truck is heavy with MT tires, large motor, then i suggest you to get the vorza rear shocks (very much the same as D8 shock, taken out of the vorza of course with orange springs - which is stift). You can get 4 of them for $55 shipped.
    I recently got one set, and could not be happier. I mount the front as is but use the outer holes on bottom and inner holes on top to get the truck lower.
    For the rear, i got the D8T long shock end (rear) - HBS67820 to raise it up a little.
    Other than that, i used stock mounts and some spacer laying around

    1fstmr2,
    i don't have the 2nd slash but a quick check on them and I see that they both use the same shocks - regular or big bores.
    so sure the d8 or vorza 97mm shocks should fit on your 2nd slash.

    Here is a link to the mod: http://www.rcshortcourse.com/forum/t...-tutorial.html
