One trick I do is to push the shaft through the shock and build the seal, spacer, seal stack on the shaft BEFORE inerting into the shock cavity. The lets the seals float around a bit more and keeps any extra pressure off the seal as you insert the shaft so u dont catch an edge and tear the seal (Similar to dirt bikes)

Oh and always use a seal grease, I use race tech

Build my shocks like this since day one. Not a drop of oil at all.

My X-rings leaked too but I was attempting to use them with V1 big bores. I thought I had heard that there was a clearance difference between the B5 shocks and the V1 big bores from like the SC10 or B4.2. I could be wrong about that. With my V1 shocks, they leaked a bit right away and needed a very small amount of shimming for some extra squeeze of the rings. If people aren't using the right spacer or if AE has some variation in any of the three critical components that make up the shock cartridge there could be leaking.

Has anyone had issues with the Exotek wing mounts breaking wings easily? When you put the buttons on, there is overhang on the back of the mounts that come to a point. I have broken 2 wings at those points.

I just ground those points down so now they are flush with the buttons like the JConcepts ones.

The wing mounts work great and never had a problem with them breaking the wings.

I'll try a thicker spacer or a added shim. Thanks for the tip I'll let you guys know. But I build them like I have been and just started having problems with at least two shocks on every car I put them in (2 t4.2 and a b5).

Kody recommends soaking the x-rings in oil for about an hour before building the shocks. Or for as long as can while doing the rebuilds.

for the updated gear box you use the 5x10 top shaft bearing and you need the new top shaft as well.
