Tried this on the B3 Facebook page with very little answers. I have a T3 & a B3 that no matter what I do I can’t prevent air from being sucked into the shock bodies. This happens even with the cap off. New o rings (factory and aftermarket) new bushings machined and the black ones that come with the kit. Several sets of each over the last couple of months. Going broke on shock rebuild kits and bushings. Ready to just give up on the whole deal. Been trying to get ahold of associated for a week now with null responses.

AE is moving to a new location. That's why you haven't been able to contact them. They should be back to normal soon.

If you can find a super thin washer to fit the bottom of the shock bodies, it will help compress the o rings tighter.

Build them with green slime also. I let the o rings sit in a bag with slime till I am ready to use them.

I'm not on the B3 FB pages, all the good questions or even known issues get no response. But when the user screws up, you'll see 25 comments..

Overall I was very impressed with the truck. Here's a short vid of me drving it. (Green with Yellow Wheels)
