Anyone ever measure the bore size? It would answer alot off questions as to why the shocks r softer after switching
Sounded like 7.62 my red piston are a little bit bigger
Stock red two hole (.500) piston is 7.6mm wide stock bore is 7.80mm = .2mm differance, perfect.
On my hot racing shock the bore size is 7.95mm that = a .15mm differance when using the stk piston
Not perfect or even close
That lets lots of blow by and a piston rod that will wobble back and forth.
Lesson to learn if all the hot racing shock bodies r 7.95mm your shocks will be way softer then your stock
Shocks i have read many a story of this happining with confusion being the end result.
Measure your hot racing and all shock bodies to know what you have. Before you waste your time.

I'll try anything once, maybe twice!
I use the stock blue seal -stock spacer -blue seal then a hr seal and that works pretty good no leaks
