Default Do shock covers really help?

Hi I just bought a pair of shock covers from bluegrasshobbies.com and wanted to know if they really help keep the dirt out? Also do they have an affect on how the shocks work? Also I wanted to put a very good word for bluegrass hobbies. All there prices beat amian by about 5 bucks and the shipping is top notch and quick. Todd Green the manager also has unbeleivable customer support and answers all your questions quickly. Dont be afraid to ask for a part also because he doesnt have every part on the site but every part I have asked for he has had. Just wanted to let you know of another top notch online dealer besides amain!!! Also I am in no way affiliated with bluegrass I just have had 2 great transactions and have saved myself 75 bucks instead of shopping at amain.

There link is bluegrasshobbies.com, give them a look.

Well, why did you buy them if you weren't sure if they worked?

I do not like them, they cause the springs to bind, IMO, my buddy runs them all the time, I do not like em personally. They do keep the dirt out. But I found them to be a hassle...

IMO all you really need is shock boots that arent ripped. Those would only let minimial if any dirt in.

Because he wanted to see if they actually did work.

I like the ones i have but the trick is to clean them every race or the few pieces of dirt that does get in them can add up quick and jut make your problem worse

Well to xray eddy I bought them because I wanted to see if they worked and I found them for half price at bluegrass hobbies, only 10 bucks. So I guess I will try them out a few race days and see.
