    Skid plate

    Well ive been wanting to get a skid plate for my mini summit but was really wanting to buy one from T-Bone cause they can be a bit price so... i decided to be a red neck and do this. (its part of a gallon milk carton)

    Mate you could also make one out of a plastic storage box if you have one, just a thought. But you can grab a set of tbr front and rear on flea bay for about 25 bucks

    Where did you get them from??

    Have you checked to see if there is a limiter in the shock body?
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
