So the truck is awsome. But we all know the shocks are sub standard for this 1/8th scale truck. Say what you want, if its based off of a mid sized truck its a 1/8th scale.
So, I placed a bid on ebay for a brand new, full set of 8ight shocks. Got them for $50 shipped. The outcome? Well you decide...
Start by removing your stock shocks.
Then trim the inside of the arm where the arrow is pointing.
These are the spacers I used on th efront top shocks. Other wise the shock will hit the shock tower. I pulled them out of my parts box. I think they came with my Wheelie king.
I trimmed the spacer so it would fit the top of the shock cap of the 8ight shocks.
Then I took the shock and put some large fuel line through the shock cap mounting hole.
I them cut it even with the shock cap.
This is what it looked like when it was ready to be installed.
Here it is all mounted to the shock tower.
Here you can see how its sits off of the tower and doesnt hit a thing^_^
Now the rear. They were pretty straight forward. The top of the shock screwd right in using the feul line and a spacer was not needed. You can see in th epicture below that the spacer is used on the bottom to preven it from rubbing on the arm.
Now its all done and ready to conquer the 1/8 scale track!!
