Default D8T shocks on a Lightning Stadium Pro

I have a LSP and since I can no longer find replacement shock shafts or rebuild kits, I want to know what all I need to replace them with the D8T shocks. I called HPI / HotBodies and they told me they would be a direct fit, but after buying the shocks, assembling them, and installing them my truggy sits lower than a buggy. Anybody got any suggestions?

If Hot Bodies told you they were a direct fit they flat out Lied to you.. The Shocks are shorter then any other 1/8 vehicle made. The D8 get away with it by mounting the shocks further in-ward on the lower A-arms. Your best bet is to resale them to someone and try to find some Jammin Big Bores.. those shocks should work for you. The only thing you might need would be the stand offs on the shock tower..

The only way you might get the D8t shocks to work is by using the longer shock end. Check these out
