The 710 rear suspension is longer then 720. If you move 720 rear suspension (rcc shock) to 710 I am afraid you can't get your droops lesser then +9, default is +7.

710 has its own RCC shock. try to get that and its longer then 720 rcc shock.

I havent bent any more dogbones since i went to the diff. Yes, it brakes good with the diff, 4 wheel lock up for sure. The outdrive cup breakage might be because I had front end too wide maybe...? I just think they are weak parts. Going from the solid to the diff, I had to relearn to setup properly all over, having trouble getting the front/rear balance right

my setup was

front 37 and sometimes goes down to 35.
Rear either 40 or somtimes 37.
Front shock 3 holes oil is 40W serpent or 70 trinity or equal.
rear shock 4 holes.

Front yellow spring and rear red spring.

front roll center from default to higest.


Next you need to see if you like the feeling...

Get a Murnan engine and use the ratio mentioned above.

Red with 40 should be OK, but how many holes do you have in the shocks? Try standing them up more, try harder roll-bar setting before you go to harder oil.

What droop are you running in the front? What caster and also make sure the ride height is right.

Try reducing droop first, then hard rear roll-bar. I found on my 710 this worked very well.
