    Slash 4x4 Front Suspension Question



    Basically the front suspension when pushed down doesn't rise back up. Just replaced the shocks last night because I thought that was the problem. Obviously not extremely experienced but have built cars and trucks from the ground up so I do know some things. Any advice help answers would be greatly appreciated!

    Thinking your drive shafts are bound up. Do a search on here or you tube on how to file them down a bit.

    from the sound of things (the sqweeking) it sounds like you might have gotten some lock-tight on your a-arm hingpins or shock screws. I did this when I first got my rustler and had to buy a whole new front end.

    Like ATC mentioned the driveshafts could also be bound up.

    Take the shocks off and see if it still does it. If so, it is likely your drive shafts (take apart and clean really good).

    Even if your driveshafts aren't bound up now(which they probably are) you should file the down anyway so you can avoid this annoyance later on.

    You have binding somewhere. Do you have Mip X-Duty's? That would help with the binding and you probably won't break them
