how about the swollen shock bladders? would it be advisable to replace the shock bladders every other time you replace the oil?

I notice the swollen shock bladders too. They seem to shrink back down after a while. I usually rotate them out with some others that I have and when I go back to them, they're shrunk back down. Maybe I should be rebuilding the shocks with new bladders?

Thanks for the instructions Brian, I never really asked how to properly build shocks, and I struggled like hell getting them rebound right. It never occurred to me to push the shaft in and then use suction to hold the bladder on. It's too bad you can't bleed the shocks easily if you end up with too much, or an imbalanced amount of oil.

Tamiya bladders? Tamiya pistons? Maybe I should just switch to their shocks if they're so much better than Corally's. :-D

A guy had had the blue TRF shocks on his RDX at the track...looked sweet if you had blue screws on as well. He said they ran very very smooth as well.

I have Tamiya 3 hole pistons (shimed), Tamiya Black TRF bladder with the red volume compensators, and Tamiya springs (shock collars flipped) and my shocks are buttery smooth

It is a little foam biscuit that sits on top of the shock bladder.

have you guys tried o-rings over the bladders or do the foams work better on the corally shocks?
