Default Do you guys slip shock boots over shock ends 8b2.0?

I just got a 8b 2.0 recently and I went to put shock boots on but not sure if I should trim front and then let them both front and rear hang free or slip over shock ends? I noticed they kind of suck up to shafts if you slip them over shock ends but not sure which is correct. Thanks!

its a personal prefernce really, ran mine last year with the boots, this year i took them off and check them more often, but when i ran them i slipped them over shock ends and then put bottom spring retainer on. just what i did, im not saying its right or wrong. (have to protect your opinion here)

I run the losi boots but i cut them just above the spring retainer. i have 3 gallons on the original set with no tears. My seals still last along time.
