Yes. you will lose a bit of travel though cuz of the spring.
You could also put the spring under for a droop setup or under and over for double sprung. It's all about skinny springs that, when compressed, don't end up very tall.

Got to princess auto they have a grab bag of springs for $10 or so.
That will give you a
bunch of different types of springs.
you want the ones that look like springs that come out of a pen
to go around the shock shaft inside the shock under the piston
or out side the shock body on the shaft.

me i use on that sits on the piston just under the cap.
right or wrong in others minds that's how i like it on my rig.

it's a tuner thing.

this sort of experimenting and tuning is fun.

I ran internal springs once. I liked it. They were the Gmade transitions. They leaked and leaked and i scrapped them. Ended up with traxxas big bores.
