Where do you run your buggy?

Check the plastic piston thing inside the shock. Make sure there are no flashing left from the factory. (Flashing=extra plastic from parts tree that wasn't cut).

Make sure your shock shaft isn't a little bit bent...

If it's the Kyosho 7.5 Sport. Then I can bet it's a bent shock shaft. There's been plenty of complaints about those things, even in the magazine reviews.
