I use this one from Avid. That said I only put my shocks together hand tight. No leaking. Kyosho shocks are the best.

I put it nice and snug.. I used it like 5 times now removing all 4 and it was starting to wear out then it just gave out.. I'm using a wrench now works better but kind of scuffed it a bit..

The stock one or the proline phantom.

I use pliers for the shocks. Not pretty but it works.

Is there an easier way to remove the ball studs on the rear of the mid motor car?

For the rear hubs, I know there are alloy options for different toe settings.
Are there composite hubs for different toe settings too? I'd like to experiment in this area, but not get alloy until I settle on what works best for me, to do so at a reasonable cost.

The proline gen 3 bulldog or phantom, the phantom covers the area before the shock tower just a little better.

I think all the composite hubs are 0deg. I prefer to run the 0deg hubs and adjust the toe and track with using the new arm hangers.

Serious. You're putting them on way too tight. I never even use the tool to put the cartridge assembly back together—just bare fingers on the o-ring cap as that turns the whole assembly into the shock body hand tight. There's no need to torque anything. Then the tool just pops it right back off no problem.

+1! This is so true and wished I knew this when I first got my buggy.

Unfortunately, it costs me $100+ early on with new shock parts due to my bad habits from over-tightening my prior Aslowciated.
