Is it really necessary to change the o-ring everytime you rebuild your shocks? Mine looks fine so I was wondering if its still necessary. Ever feel like the oil in the shocks are useless because of how much compression and rebound the springs have (compared to the shock shaft) especially the red ones?

Well the oil is there to prevent the car from bouncing after it compresses. so if you have RED and 20wt oil then it is useless.

but I guess 35-40 with red is good I guess.

I learned this here on this thread

I some what agree on that as well. Thicker shock wont bounce as much but if its too thin then it probably wont make a difference. I was so pissed off that I couldnt get one of my front shocks to compress correctly so I stayed up until 2:30am to find out the black pivot point top where the ball cups go in had a tiny crack in it due to the big accident I had a few days ago. I kept wondering why there was oil coming out from the top everytime I tighten it. I was like WTF happened to my shocks! SO pissed off I refuse to sleep. Thank god I found the problem. Now I can sleep peacefully. Now im going to agg in the moring when I wake up knowing I didnt get enough sleep. Dam 710 is addicting. Just hate to see her all in pieces.
God dam it, now I have to sleep with my hands black

Welcome to the Club! You'll be optimising everything shortly - I've just rebuilt the back end of my 705 for no particular reason except to be sure that everything is lubed and adjusted correctly. And it actually proved to be useful - I found out that my rear anti-roll bar wasn't moving freely enough in its ball socket - the ball part of the left handside was slightly bigger than that on the right - sorted that out now Tomorrow I'll be checking the front Black hands! Uh ho - here comes Girlfriend!!!

"Sipho, you know, this is the shortest runway I have ever seen, but sheesh she's WIDE!!!"
Any landing you can walk away from is a GOOD landing....

For me, I change them when the shocks leak easily from the bottom where the O rings are.

Shock oil determines how fast and slow the weight transfers. You may not notice it but when you put shocks with different oil in the car, your car handling changes.
