Starting on the shock build this weekend and I have a few questions.
Does anyone use green slime in the bottom cartridge? Or dry? And looking at set-up sheets on Petite, which Pistons to use ? The stock ones or others? And anything else I should watch for on the build?

I used green slime , but I do on all shock pieces. As for pistons I used the kit ones but other have expressed there unhappiness with them not being machined so the switch to machined ones, either yokomo or schelle I think. I've had no issues with the stock pistons they feel fine to me but what do I know lol.

The kit pistons are kind of a joke, but fortunately the upgrade ones are pretty cheap. You can also use AE ones with no issue.

I use grease on the build, the biggest reason is that if all the voids in the o-ring cartridge are packed with grease then oil can't leak in from the top.

On rebound, for me it's all track conditions. If I need some more pop off the jumps I run rebound.

My kit is missing the e clip and sim for the piston assembly. Any notes on this? I looked all over. I can't find them in any bag

Hey guys, I have been running STLNLST's setup and it has been great so far until today. When ever I was going around the 180 turns, my inside rear wheel was lifting. I tried going to the rear inside tower hole and it was better, but it was still lifting. Any ideas what I can do?

normally when the inside rear lifts I add a shim internally to the rear shocks. Or your front shock fluid is too light.
