Default Associated TC6 Shock Springs

Hello all, I'm wanting to get a shock spring set kit for an Associated TC6 (not 6.1). Is this the appropriate kit to get? TC6 is not listed as compatible but TC5 and 6.1 are. Hopefully this isn't a stupid question .

Same springs on the TC3/4/5/6/6.1, but honestly you'll probably only use the blues, silvers, and greens from that set unless you're racing on foams somewhere. The Reflex Racing spring set is a much better set of the springs.

Thanks serzoni, I'll definitely take a look at those tomorrow.

I have some further questions. On my TC6, the right side of the car's shocks seem to move up and down easier than the left side. Is this an indication that it's time to rebuild the shocks, just refill with oil, or just normal?

Furthermore, what oil weight ranges should I keep? As far as I know most of the guys do run foams on certain conditions. We'll be racing indoor on carpet and outdoor on asphalt. Considering this, is the spring kit set you linked still handle all of that? No one else at the hobby shop is running this car. Most everyone is running something different so any further assistance you guys can provide is much appreciated.

Thanks!
