Put the shock spacers on there. Put em on the shock shaft to limit downtravel. If you need more than that some fuel tubing will work from your LHS.

Yeah. I just put some bump stops to limit the travel a little.

What kind of servo are you running? I dont have the shock limiters on and I stil have half an inch between my servo and chassis. I an running a tower pro mg995 and TCS 4 link if that changes anything.

If your running droop,you need no space for up travel.

The stock shocks have to much travel anyway. Limit them before bending your chassis

Limit the travel.

Put the original stops on the outside like the instructions show. That will keep your lower links level as well.

Keeps everything low still since the shock mounting locations have been altered from the stock config.

i got that but in the front where the tube bends down its like almost hitting my servo with it setup semi droop... so on down travel it will for sure hit...

I'd like to see a picture. I bet I could figure it out better if I could see it. Harley designed the thing so I'm sure he knows a bit better what your dealing with. I'm curious if theres a way to lower your servo.

Unless your jumping it,I highly doubt the servo would hit much anyway during regular crawling. When the axle twist's,it'll actually pull the servo down and to the side.
