    The plastic threads on the shock caps combined with the shock body plastic threading is a poor design. You could buy new shocks, or a better alternative would be to replace the caps with aluminum.

    Take a look at the Losi Ten-T shocks with stock Losi springs. They are super plush and the caps won't pop off.

    +20 on losi ten-t on ebay. $55 for a set, but aluminum tops fix ur prob. But the losi are super plush, like drivin on a cloud.

    If you go with alu shock caps, STRC are the ones to get. IMO.

    FYI, there is a slight difference between the Losi SCTE shocks, and Truggy Ten T shocks - the upper cap/shock tower mount was a bit beefier so I had to use a couple washers as spacers to clear the springs. The Ten-T shocks needed no spacers.
