    Rear squat variance.

    I'm working on dialing in my shocks for my slash and I've noticed that the rear left ( motor side ) settles faster than the other side. They both rebound the same so it sits level. Should I shim just that one side so it increases the spring rate or should I be looking at something else?

    Any pins bent? Shock oil low? Air bubbles? Bent shock shaft?

    Fresh rebuilds, no air, 50wt oil, big bore shocks, straight shafts, no bent pins. One step stronger springs

    How about your hinge pins for the arms?

    Got it squared away. I hadn't rebuilt the fronts yet and removed my 3/8 spacers I installed to lower it. All is good now. I can drop it from 5 ft and the chassis settles in real nice without ever bottoming out....... Still has 3/8 in between the chassis and ground when it rebounds
