    Suspension help

    First off what is the purpose of those spacers that come with the truck? When you put them on your shocks what is it doing? The previous owner of my truck put two of em' on each shock. I removed them and now the springs won't stretch back out all of the way. I'm not sure of what all he did but the suspension seems way to stiff to me. On my stock Rustler I have it's not that hard to make the shocks depress with my hand. With the Slash basically I can't make em' depress all of the way. I have dropped both vehicles from about two feet and the rustler just hits and stays on the floor while the slash bounces back off the ground a bit. Steer me in the right direction here. I'm mainly gonna drive offroad in dirt and short cut grass fields. Not alot of jumping.

    it stiffens the springs to give it a little less travel. also adjust the ride height.

    If your springs are weak, I would go with the T Max red springs.

    You got a part number for the springs? A site I looked at had 3 different red springs listed for that truck.
