SCUBA STEVE,
Thanks for your info. I will look into the changes you are talking about. I know Kevin Willson was using a different setup when I saw him racing at Fasttrax.(other then stock) I wanted to get the setup he was using but ran out of time. A few guys in my area are going up to Fasttrax this coming Sat. So I will have more time to try different things.

Cool, I've known Kevin for about 5 or 6 years, he can definately give some good advice ..... now that I think of it he may have been running the same set up that we were... I'm pretty sure when I was talking to him at the mid-west that he also removed the rear sway bar and made some changes ... heck, maybe sometime I could get down to fasttrax and race... I've heard of it but never been there. Talk to ya later, Steve

Red face

Best way is to insert the shock shaft through the body, put some green slime on the orings and slide them over the shaft and then press them down into the body as you complete the assy.
I'm working on a project to help with the leaking.

Cool

It is pretty good if you install the orings around the shaft then put them in the body. With shims it adds a little crush to the o rings then it seals up completly.
Seems as though they cut the ID of the shock body a little big.
The orings from TKO make a big difference.
