Hey guys so I got a new summit a couple weeks ago and I haven't even played with it yet. I know it sucks One thing that I dont like much is how the back sags a bit, Im sure it might be better for crawling but i would just like to see a little less sag. So yesterday I went to the hobby store and purchased a set of front springs to install in the rear #5469 they have a higher spring rate 5.4 then orginal stock rear which I believe is 4.9. So any ways I took the rear shocks off and removed the spring just for inspection I decided to test the rebound of the shock so I pushed in the shaft and I was really surprised at how the shock barely moved back out. This is my first Traxxas ever and maybe its normal for this kind of truck. I just wanted to confirm if this is accurate, plus does anyone know the shock weight for the stock Summit shocks?
Here are some pics.

What shock weights are you running?
Thanks in advance!
