    Ultra Shocks

    Just picked up and installed a set of Big Bore shocks for one of my p2des. I noticed that when I push down on the truck, the shocks have a bit of sag and dont return all the way up to full extension. Is this normal?

    Did you buy a set for the slash? they will come with progressive rate springs. These springs are softer at the beginning of the stroke, and stiffer at the end of the stoke. You can adjust your ride height by adding the shock spacers, or getting different springs. You should have some "sag" in your off road suspension setup. This way the tires can drop into low spots in the terrain, and stay in contact with the ground.

    Yes they are for the slash. I already have the big spacers in them. I will have to run it and see how it handles. Thank you.

    well, sag is normal, and adding a couple of smaller spacers to that big spacer may get you the increased ride height you desire.
