With that said, I would like to buy the orange springs, but I'm not finding anyone selling them. Where are you guys getting your springs from. I've found many sites that sell parts, but no springs.
Any help would be great.
Thank you.
Give me call I got the springs in stock.

Im attempting to rebuild my RCC shocks. I dont understand how to properly do it. If i fill it with the oil as i am screwing in the cap it bleeds through the threads. Even when the cap is closed it keeps bleeding when i exercise the pistons. So when i open back it has very little oil. And every one has no rebound. Isnt the shocks supposed to slowly expand outwards? As it is where i leave the piston it just sits there.

Replace the O-Rings (both the cap O-ring and the shaft O-Ring), the O-Rings are worn out causing it leak.

You need to replace the cap O-Ring #903171, Shaft O-Ring #903200 and the Foam insert #903175 (they do collapse and cause rebound issues)

The number he gave you is the post #. Look on the upper right hand corner of each post and you will see a number.

I copied and posted the file with the setup for you on this post, just click on it and download it.

You kidding me. In the past month or so I've dropped close to 700 bucks at your store in just parts and I did not see the springs anywhere. They are not easy to find since you do have them and I could had saved on the shipping and handling. I guess I will be calling tomorrow. Thx.

I think the problem is with the new EVO blocks... Since it pushes the wheel further 1mm on each side, when you try to go less than 199mm, youll find that you cant because it hits the arms. What my friend did was take a dremmel, and remove the half moon that the arms have... Cant remember if he had to remove a little more... Hope this helps...
