So what are V2 double cap shocks? Sorry if its old news
I just saw that article too and it has me hoping they FINALLY got rid of the white retaining clips. If that is true then its about #%*# time. Double cap shocks usually means a cap on both ends of the shock; bottom to load O-rings and top to load oil.

The white retaining clips are great, too bad the average user is so inept

In the last 2 years I have not had any problems on any of my ae shocks. My issue it that the design itself should be conducive to a solid build, not user knowledge. Also, the flex inherent in the plastic clip is not a desirable quality.

Apparently experts on shock design concepts can't even read the directions....

Yeah I dunno, first time I ever built mine with zero knowledge on how they were assembled they ended up fine, Team Associated assembly manuals are the best!
The new shocks will probably end up more expensive with the extra seal housing part, I assume it's aluminium.
