man there goes my thought for the day I was thinking you could use the bladders on the standard shock cap but heck
i guess im going to steve 's site and order some new yoko caps.

that will work with the bladders right?

std yok caps & bladders work fine.
Build from the bottom, fill with fluid, pull piston out against bottom cap when installing

The shorter frt shock bodies on the back are reccommended

Why are the short bodies for the rear so important? I'm doing fine with the normal ones

KO, I think the yokomo bladder caps are great, whenever I buy another cuda it will be one of the things I buy straight away for it. They make getting leak free and even socks a breeze. As RBF says, build shock from bottom up, fill with oil while piston is down, then punp it slowly a few times to get rid of bubles, place bladder on top without trapping extra air in, place foam on top then screw on cap. Easier to do than type about

Well there's no difference in length to the stock caps. So changing to the shorter bodies must be for some other reason.

Well if you had noticed .. the shock body is rather long and when you compress the shockall the way..it hits all the way when the chassis is touching also....so running the shorter bodies will allow the rear to have more travel when the chassis is lower... hence the car doesn`t get crudy handleing when the cshock is compressed..

I have this done to all my R2`s
a must do if your serious...

But you are correct Herm...There is no difference to the overall length of the shocks with the Yok caps.

The R1 shocks are a different lenght all around than the R2 ones...and the Xenon shock bodies are very short...they are right around the same lenght as the PAL silver ones..
