Pictures would certainly help. What is your current belly clearance? Are you 4 linked? Are you running underdrive rear gears and\or overdrive front?

You may have some torque twist going on if the front wheels are lifting up on you. You can do a search to find out how to fix that. You may also want to limit your shocks to lower the ride height.

Post up some pics if you can.

3 1/4 is a bit high. I run mine 2.5 to 2.75 depending on terrain. Torque twist is a likely culprit as well, work on dialing that out

You can lower ride height with shorter shocks. A 4" shock is common on the AX 10.

I think you should run a 4" shock and add a lot more weight in the front. The shorter shock will lower it down about were you want it and the weight will keep your front planted. My fronts weight about 15oz total each.

i'd lower it like been said 3 1/4 is a tad high for my liking aswell. mine is 2 3/4 high and feel I could go lower, but its not terrible, I also feel you need more weight in your front wheels, good luck, and have fun.

I used to have problems with flipping over until I loaded my front tires with bb's now I can go places I never imagined I could.
