Enjoy !
pictures are deceiving. in the picture above.. the illustration shows a blue spring retainer. you only get the black plastic ones. the blue aluminum retainers have to be purchased separately.

There was a part number for the all blue damper. It was silver smooth on the inside (no flourine) and it was a 49 number in the 491_ _ somethings. They were threaded blue body, with the smooth blue caps top and bottom. They are not available anymore. It also came on the TRF414mII, If I remember correctly.

IN time maybe you can upgrade to hard suspension arms, steering knuckles and rear hubs.
Did the motormount ever distort the plastic where it's bolted on in your car? Mine got distorted and the plastic cover beside it also shows some melting. Should put some asbestos plate I guess. Im running type s motor with 23T pinion and 55spur.

BTW, tbo2 handles great and very easy to drive. But mines fully hopped up with LWrev suspensions already that could be it. It handles easier than my tbevo maybe coz I didn't put a oneway yet.

The 49355 was the set that just released, and it has the Alum collor with the o ring, and the knurled / ribbed top and bottom caps
Like Kevin said, it was released back when the 414MII was available. long since gone.

I remember those. They looked really cool too. I think those were some of the first shock with the plastic preload collars too. Before that they had 2 seperate aluminum ones if I remember right.

They were just recently released, however there were 8 part numbers for the shocks (4 blue & 4 red) that have been out for about 2 years, they were the corrugated / knurled caps (top and bottom), the aluminum spring perch, the aluminum top (this piece replaced the plastic part where the ball was to mount the shock to the tower), and the adjustable spring retainer (this was aluminum, and had an o-ring in it to keep the retainer from adjusting it self)
All of these are in the new TRF shock except the top
