    Spacer under rear rockers

    I forget which truck i had these on, but i cant find them on any of the exploded views on the E/revo platform.
    I removed the rockers once and some spacers fell out from under the rockers on the rear. Im trying to find them again, on pretty much all my Revo based rides the rear spring preload rings are very difficult to turn and adjust preload. I would tend to believe that that little spacer would help this issue.

    Anyone have a part #?


    Short of that, anyone have a quick fix for the rear preload rings?

    Fronts have given me zero issues on any of my rigs, but those rears are a nail buster.

    i think that spacer your talking about are for when you install a swaybar. what it does is to lift up the suspension abit so that the swaybar linkage dont rub the bulkheads. i use them on all 4 corner so that my springs dont rub. it also come stock on summit trucks F/R but on one side each only, cant remember which side...

    available separate anywhere?

    Come to think of it, they came out of a roller i bought that had sway-bars on it. Makes sense.
    I never used the Traxxas sways, i have always used Teknos when i have used them.

    Yeah that was my next "to the workshop" to find something that fits snug on the rocker post lol.

    These are definitely the guys.


    Would love to find something equivalent given the fact i have 4 E/Revo based vehicles with the same issues.

    Still wondering if anyone has come up with an alternate to the stock sway bar spacer for this issue?
    I like the glow plug washer idea, but i do not run nitro and do not have any old nitro stuff kicking around to steal some of those.

    Bought a pack of the Durango shims as mentioned but they do not fit over the threads on the rocker studs. i used 2 on the top half under the rockers, but now there is a bit of resistance on the rocker once i tighten them up. Might have to go back to the drawing board on them.
    They work, i have the clearance i was looking for but that friction probably isnt the best thing for the suspension.
