originally it would just sink to where the chassis was sitting on the ground....but now it will stay up for like 1-2 seconds and then sink

From the picture, the material look alike the old ZS-010FH/RH hardened universals for MR4TC-SP which durability has been proven.
Ehmmm, let's give it a try.

Do all 4 shocks react the same?
This may sound like a stupid question, but you say the chassis stays up 1 or 2 seconds, then it sinks to the ground. Do you have springs installed on the shocks? have you tightened down the collars on the shocks to compress the springs?

yes the springs are installed on the shocks....ive built shockes before, but they were for nitro cars and not desiged like this at all....like there is nothing inside of the shock to slow the piston from moving it doesnt make sence to me at all....i cant seem to find a way to post a link but there is the manual on the yokomo website for the drift package....maybe if someone can take a look at it....im out of idea...and very close to purchasing the threaded shocks

so i looked at the manual, when you say theres nothing to slow the shock down, you meant theres no shock oil? i see directions for building the shocks on page 19. did you see the note where it said, "shaded parts are not used" that means you should have #3 pistons and the LONG shock ends on. if you used the short ends then the car will probably sit on the table. did the shocks come with "spacer rings" to adjust spring tention?

thisisagame24,
there are two type of shock end, AL(long) & AS(short), the instruction calls for the AL shock ends. If you use the AS, your shocks will be too short and the car sits too low, eg. chassis touching the ground. Please double check you use the right shock ends.

im not sure if the drift car has droop screws. but if it has check that they havent been screwed down to far, so that they limit the ride height you can get.

might not be it, but cant harm trying.

thanks

I looked at the directions, have you installed the upper spring collar correctly? Have you installed the lower spring retainer upside down? What is the length of your shocks in mm? Make sure ,by the way, that all 4 shocks are the same length. The instructions did not mentioned anything about the length of the shocks. Have you got the shocks mounted in the correct holes, (arms and shock towers)?

the thing i notice is the lack of spring spacers. how are you suppose to adjust ride height,

one more thing, i assume you have the wheels and tires on.
