Capricorn experts I need some help. I have the 803 evo with the original steel rear swing shafts(dogbones) and Capricorn no longer makes the steel ones and I just tried the aluminum replacement and they snapped. Does anyone have the original #2232 steel rear swing shafts they would sell me or has anyone converted the rear of their 803 to the swing shaft design like the 804 ? Any help appreciated
thanks

The springs in the kit are the red springs? So I donít think you need to purchase them
