Default Accociated RC8 Big Bores

I have a RC8 and want to install Associated BB shocks. I need the froms 29 and the rears 38mm set of shocks. Now for my questions?

are the shock standoffs the same as original that will work with the BB

I have a surplus of stock shock shafts, boots, shock ends and standoffsn will all of these trasfer over to the BB

where do I get springs or does anybody know when there coming out

what set ups are people running pistons, springs, oil etc

thanks

The AE Forums are a great resource. There's a ton of info, including from AE guys like Brent T., on the big bores, setups, etc.

In the meantime, the stock standoffs will work but you may or may not need the AE flanged lock nuts (part number in a post on the AE Forums). I use them but my buddy just used the blue plastic shock bushings and they've held so far. You may also have to grind the wing mount a little so the shocks clear. I used a Dremel and a sanding drum and took off about 4mm of material and it's working great. Boots will not cross over but you'll be happy with the new ones. Much better. Ends might cross over, haven't checked. AE springs should be out soon but the 16m OFNA springs work as well. I picked up the soft, medium and hard springs from OFNA. They also offer a very soft set (so I hear). The soft ones are plenty soft though. They're also painted different colors, which looks cool.

Check those forums for the setups. This is a particulary good post by Brent.

I found the shocks here but no springs yet. I think sommeone mentioned the ofna's which will work fine.

You may look on the front page of this site and see what coupons they might have.

One thing I like about Carolinas is that it shows you if it's in or out. I had that happen before as well...

I should have said I have the AE rear silver springs. Now just waiting on the AE front spring set. Right now I have ofna spring on. I have to say the AE spring are by far cheaper price over the ofna springs.

You think they would have software showing what have on hand. Problem I called them gave them the part# the guy said they had them. I was placing the order online while I was talking to him. Then the order said backordered after placing the order but I get the big bore shocks they wasn't backordered. Called back got someone else they don't know why he said they had the spring set there when they haven't recieved them.
