I'm going to sort out the truck in blinky stock first, then come join you in Pro 2.

Here's a little tip for those of you who like me are really bugged about the short TLR front springs bouncing around when the shocks are at full extentionl. The bottom shock retainer cups for the Pro-line Powerstroke shocks are just larger enough around that the TLR springs fit snugly onto them. And they fit nicely onto the TLR shock ends. No more springs bouncing around.

It's probably not worth buying the Powerstroke shock rebuild kit just for a little piece of mind. But if you have a kit laying around already, give it a try.

Problem solved.

Ok thanks Casper. And just to be sure that was with a normal sized battery correct?

Thanks

just picked up an AVID bearring kit, battery tray, and Red Triad pads and a 78 spur for my 22SCT.
I'll let you guys know how the battery tray fits and functions.

^ that about sums it up.
its about 3 or 4mm lower in height from chassis then the stock one. this is great!, so you can snug the tray up to the battery, and still be able to remove the battery by simply undoing the straps.
no more finessing the battery out, LOL.
it adds weight, and its about as low as you can get. on the chassis, and up front.

so far, its $16 well spent. very well spent, no more foam to lose in front of the battery.
now I need to buy one for my 22T!

after talking to my local hobby shop owner, I can honestly say that Avid is one of my favorite companies.
they listen, they provide, they innovate. AVID For The Win!

quick question for casper,
would there be any reason that you can't/shouldn't run -1* rear camber,
or is it best to stick with -2*?

ran basically the casper/dunford setup all last weekend, truck worked really well, needs a few tweeks.

No reason you should not. Less camber should result in a little better forward bite and a little less side bite.

You're welcome! Glad it's been helpful to people. The real hard work comes from people like yourself who's actually making stuff, so thank you as well!

Now that the 22 2.0 has been announced, the ST and SCT can't be far away. Anyone else here going to try out some of the new parts on their 22sct once they're available? I'm thinking the new front end suspension parts will make it onto my truck as well as the new shock shafts, shock plastic parts and x-rings.
