I was running stock slash socks, started having issues with the caps comming off. So i bought some bigbores (45wt all the way around and 2 whole pistons). problem solved, right? Wrong! they worked well for a couple weeks. noticed they were leaking oil from the caps so i put a little bit of thread tape on 'em. Stoped leaking however today i noticed the cap looked crooked. I thought i might have cross-threaded them, but when i put them back on straight and tested them i felt the threads on the cap "pop" and they were crooked again.
Im thinking the threads are gone beyond repair. Which brings me to my question(s).
1. Is there some magical way that just replacing the cap might fix it?
2. If it doesnt, are there any tube replacements that might be a little stronger?
3. ...Or replacing the 2 whole pistons w/ 3 whole (and replacing the tubes and caps of course)to lower the pressure load on the caps?
Thanks guys, Im new here and really like whats going on.
