Thanks for the imput would like to try to stay with mugen springs if possible gess I will try the hard springs due to the extra weight of the truck and see what happens.

You guys might want to check the actual size of those MBX6 shocks when you fit them. I know the front MBX6 bodies are longer than 5T stockers. The Kyo BB F/R buggy shocks would actually fit the 5T perfectly.

I run 10.75 rear and 9.75 in front with 350 all the around for the Nitro Pit here in Az. I believe Bobby Tillman runs almost the same set-up. The mbx6 shocks are the ticket for sure and fit perfect.
