Mike, Your welcome, sorry I was not available to talk when you came in.

Spongebob, I am sorry, I thought that site went over everything, I re-read it and noticed that it did not. You must shave off the underside of the plastic shock cap. The bottom of the cap will be totally flat when your done.

Thanks Mike.
My computer couldn't find the internet page that you linked, but yeah, gluing it to the shaft would help. Right now, I have to open them to adjust them, which isn't as bad as it could have been.

2mm allen for all the chassis screws, droop screws, and motor screws

2.5 allen for the pillow balls and wheel bolts

3mm allen for the shock balls

5mm allen (I think) for the pillow ball retainers

1.5mm allen for setcrews and shock studs

I suggest calling Buster for the Tools. He has everything or he can get it very quickly.

Will MIP O rings work on the bottom of the shocks or do I need to get the XRay ones?

I just measured my Blue ones that I have... I think they are MIP and they are the same size.

I needed to replace an o0ring in a serpent shock about a year ago, and the only thing that would fit was another Serpent o-ring. Everything else including the MIPs were too big.

Thanks, my computer found the page this time.
I'll have to try the gluing idea. My problem isn't a stripped indent, it's the hole in the male piston is too loose on the shaft... I wonder if I could replace the top e-clip with a small nut to grab and hold it. Any ideas?
