How much droop vs spring do you run droop 90mm spring 109mm what's a good setup and oil weight? Running scx10 with 2.2's

I'm still running the stock 1.9's but I just couldn't find the balance using my Gmade shocks.
I've got the 1.9-2.2 adapter plates but set to droop they just bottomed so actually had loads of articulation but no cushion over flatter ground.
The other way i had to raise the bed to accommodate the shocks which made it look like some sort of new bright rtr lol.

I know there will be a sweet position/setting but its gonnna take some tinkering and was sick of taking the shocks off and apart to test.

Just got mine installed and played with it a bit they are stout! Soft springs seem a little loose and other springs seem stiff. And it full extension they seem to stick a bit. I love the look but gonna take some tinkering

Ah those are the other ones. Not sure, about the sticking maybe try them upside down.

Do they have 2 internal springs running together either side of internal disc, or one changeable one?

Maybe just put a few drops of oil in there to keep things moving better. Are those TA01 or TA02?

Sorry TS01 or TS02.. and looking at the website I answered my own question.
TS01- Gmade TS01 Scale Shock Silver 90mm (4) [GM20802] : JunFac.com
TS02- Gmade TS02 Scale Shock Silver 90mm (4) [GM20902] : JunFac.com

I know some guys go to Ace hardware and get springs for the RC4WD shocks. Might be worth a look at your local hardware store.

yeah.. I have problems with mine too...I had a hard time putting them together, so I was hoping that they wouldnt leak so I dont have to open them again...but they leaked, I undid them and now the threads on the plastic cap are destroyed...any other parts would fit there? like Losi caps or something like that...I kinda like them, they look great and worked well until they leaked...hard to find a metallized red shock body...
