Default bad shocks?

I just recently received Integy msr5 shocks and an integy evo 3 suspension kit for my t maxx. but the only problem is the shocks. I have 70 weight oil in them, and they are so bouncy and not stiff at all. ive tried everything. is there something else I could do to make them more stiff? or do these shocks suck?

with 70WT oil shocks have no chance to respond to terrain changes.
If you are using 8 shocks go to 30WT. If just 4 try 50WT
70wt oil makes sense only if the only thing u do is to launch your maxx from a huge ramp
