They are nice, but I'd only do it if you can find the shocks cheap. I put TRF shocks on my T2, I like them but I do not prefer them over the factory xray shock. The alloy looks cooler than the plastic...but I notice no performance difference.

I used the tamiya ball stud and RPM ball cups to mount mine to the bottom arm, and long screws with double nuts and HPI shock mount inserts on the top. The TRF mounts come with two bottom ends, one too short and another too long.

They are easy to mount in other words..
