"Might" be shock seals swelling up, worth a check to see how much stiction you have without the springs on...

Don't they give you springs? I picked up a few sets as they are cheap and the car keeps getting better as I go up in rates.

yup. same thing here, i was just cleaning up my car and checking it over and the front dropped 2mm from when i set it monday. i put losi reds in the rear and it feel smuch better, cant find fronts locally in stock.

Where did it break ? can you take a pic ?
I'd try epoxy it back together - degrease first let it cure, then JBweld around the area (cure) so that you're basically radiusing out all the right angles (where the gearbox is at it's weakest) best to do it before it happens but hindsight is a luxury.

Somewhat quick fix...cut the tab completely off, get some 1/8 alum angle, cut a 1/4" wide piece. In the end...you will mount the angle to the shock tower anb have a place for your ball stud

CA and carbon fiber dust works much better. I broke one of the steering arms on my desc before they were available and fixed using cf dust and CA and it made it through an entire outdoor season, and is still on the car now.

This is what I came up with last night for the camberlink mount.
Location is equal to stock length and height is about .5mm higher then stock.
