Default RC SKIN

Anyone have alot of experience with these. I ran them on the rear once and they seemed to hold up well. The reason for having them only on the rear is that they such a ass pain to get over the springs! Is there some easy way to do this? I now have them on the front-just haven't run them yet on all 4 corners. Didnt have any noticeable affect on the spring rate-just need to seat them good on the spring cup. By the way they do have a sewn seam running the full length. This may cause a issue with unraveling in the future. But so far no issues.You can easily get 2 sets of springs covered with 1 kit.

RC-Skin has a video on youtube but I have a trick to put them on shock socks, I use a key ring, I had to insert inside the tube and insert the spring inside,Less than 20$ for more than 40"long
I have the red and black is nice on my baja and no problemo

Im sure just like the shock socks you loose some travel because they fold up when compressed, they are nice to have but can change handling.
