Default Building 1/8 Scale Shocks

I`ve heard of different ways to build 1/8 scale buggy shock`s and i`m still not sure if i`m doing it right. Does anyone know of any sites that explain the how to`s of shock building ?

Thanks

Don't use the AE green slime on the o-rings like the vid shows. thats a 1/10th shock.

Use a dab of your thickest shock or diff fluid and spin/thread the shock through the orings.

Some o-rings swell up and get ruined by green slime or grease. (especially X-ray orings.)

Check out the shock pages in the 808 kit instructions:
