    I heard on here more then once to stay away from integy anything and ppl recommend the traxxas big bore shocks with 50wt oil works well...the oil dampens the impact and the springs control the rebound...good luck

    Don't waste your money. They are junk

    I bought a set spent a hour setting them up. Ran them once. 2 of them leaked all the oil out in 15 min.

    Other go with the big bore shocks or buck up spend the money and get the pro-lines. You'll be happy you did

    There are some sacrifices, but I like them.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    I run HR shock bodies with factory everything else. It was a decent improvement over stock.

    if you want the eye-candy of piggyback shocks you can add HR biggyback shock caps to your shocks, but you should probably upgrade to aluminum shock bodies first, by the time you're finished you have an expensive suspension system.

    My personal (unsolicited) opinion is that they make you look a boob, like a street truck with 3 shocks per wheel.
    I know, no one asked.....
    There are lots of ways to do that. Most are wrong.
