    Leaking shocks

    so i have Big Bores on my 2wd slash and there always leaking always covered in oil. I was wondering if there was a way to fix this or if its normal and they all leak like that. i run 40wt in fron 60wt out back if it makes a difference.

    thanks.

    Maybe replace the seals with a rebuild kit.

    when you say they're covered in oil, it implies they're leaking from the caps.... is that right?

    The bladded inside doubles as a gasket. If you over tighten the caps, it cuts the bladder, and they can leak.

    You just want them snug, no need to over tighten the caps.
