Default Premium shocks VXL Rustler/Mod Slash

I am looking to replace the stock shocks on my Rustler VXL and possibly Mod Slash. Can anyone recommend a quality off road shock and spring set up as well as a link or order ? Thanks

I believe Losi 8ight shocks fit the Slash, with no mods.

Dont know off hand the length but they are front and rear Losi 8ight buggy shocks with 25wt in rear and 30wt shock oil in the front. rears are a little big so you might want to get two pairs of fronts.

Sounds like what I am looking for and I think I will go with two sets of fronts. Now all I need is to find a link to order them. Thanks for the help.
