Default Suspension lift?

Lets say I wanted to lift my HPI nitro RS4 MT higher then bigger tires and spring clips can get it. Is it possible to use longer shock towers, a-arms, dog bones, etc to lift the truck or is there another method? Basicly I want to convert my truck more into a monster truck then a 4WD stadium truck. Thanks!

Shock shafts.Will raise it quit a bit...Then get your tires and youll be suprised how tall you can get it.

your welcome.

BTW to save you some time the stock ones are

These are the ones for the MT2...

These will fit in the stock shock bodies? I have an MT 1 btw. Oh, springs... Will stockers work?

your original springs will work...you just have to shim the springs....but spring spacers on the shock body until they work....

Get longer shocks. Then remove the front and rear bulkheads. Now Mount them on the underside of the chasis. Put spacers in your shocks so that the truck can't bottom out. This will give you about a cm more clearance.
