Default Lowering COG / stance on bomber

What's have y'all done to lower the center of gravity and or stance on your bombers? So far I've only adjusted my shocks and changed the upper mount position on the shocks. I run generally at higher speeds and and looking to reduce roll. What do you think my best options for upgrades are?

my bomber is super stable at speed due to the fact that i run really low ride height, but have a vanquish sway bar on the rear. also, 40wt shock oil on all 4 corners. still flexes nice on the rocks due to softest springs available but handles speed like a beast

What'd you do to lower you ride height?

Build the shocks with zero rebound
Softer springs
No preload

Have a look at some of the build threads such as this one:

bilinvic's RR10 Bomber Build

I run mine very similar to this but lower. On the front I use 85mm gmade XD shocks and 103 XD shocks on the rear. The front shock length has a compromised droop but with a rear sway bar it handle reasonably well with a 3500kv motor powered by a 4s battery.

i think having built up aluminum axles helps keep it on its wheels too. my bomber has fully built curries and stainless links everywhere and never gives me any signs of tipping at speed. i think running high power you just need to put some weight down low

I switched to Powerstroke shocks. 88mm in front and 102's in the rear. Currie anti-sway bar and the links are basically flat with belly pan now.

I did what others have mentioned. Powerstroke shocks with 35wt, rear sway bar, hubs and it runs pretty good now.
