Default Mud Truck Conversion Plates - what shocks?

I am just about done with the scx10 and ordered the mud truck conversion plates to stuff 2.2s under the Mighty Fc body. I know how the stock shocks are supposed to fit, but I think it looks awkward. Does anyone know what size shocks it would take to mount the shocks in the stock holes? If the stock scx10 shocks are 90mm, would it be 110 or 120 Mm? I have a set of the g-made piggies on my twin hammers and would like to use them again, but they are only 103 mm. I would like to stay away from the replica Kings for numerous reasons, price and mediocre performance are the two leading reasons.

I should add the rig is running stock width currently and is extremely top heavy. I would like to replace the shocks with something that is still tunable and will allow for dual springs or at least offer me spring options that are fairly soft.

I am open to any and all suggestions. Once I get the headlights installed I will post pics. The thing is awesome. I am running a 2900 kv sensored leopard 4 pole geared 16/87 and it has all the bells and whistles. Once my new SSD rims come in and the 850 slw hubs (from China) I hope it will be a little more stable. It's a mean looking pig for right now, even without the mud truck plates.

Yup, I have a set I got off of eBay for 34 dollars, can't beat that for 8 shocks. What springs are you running, and are using the dual rates? My little bastard is completely overpowered and some semblance of stability would be awesome.

I looked at your build thread, and I saw King shocks, not bigbores

I swapped the shocks on my Ascender and lifted SCX10 and it worked well, I believe the Ascender shocks are 110.

I sprung for the 100 dollar 110mm shocks. The rig looks good, and I do like how they sag a little bit. I used 30 weight oil and it is probably too light. I have also ordered a few more pieces and my rig will be done and I can start a thread on the "Mightiest FC". I will say, the Kings shocks do create a very scale ride. You can really see the axles moving with those shocks. Axle twist is pretty severe, and I may consider a sway bar on the rear axle to help.
