Are they going to send you new ones every 5 packs?
They supposedly fixed them, and I waited quite a while to replace them on my buggy because they said it was a running change. When I got the new ones, they showed scoring shortly after. Looks like the same old situation with the truck.
I wonder how much it would cost TLR to make shock shafts like they did 10 years ago. Too much I guess

Sorry, still love the vehicles though!

what O rings are you running?? i know i had a problem with my buggy till i went to the low friction O rings. the stock ones have alot of friction. for my truck i went with the low friction inside and a stock one outside. you will notice a difference in the performance also. you can do low friction inside and out but the shocks will leak a little.

I did same exact thing on my 22 and 22t. One low friction o ring and one regular one. I'm not a good enough driver to tell the difference in 2 low friction in comparison to 1 so I just run the setup thats a lil easier to maintain.

I have seen people bring this up on the buggy thread as well . This has been a problem at least since the XXX-CR and XXX-T CR came out . Not sure why some are surprised . Would be nice to get some that hold up like the old days .
