Default Sawback Shocks?

Have been playing with RC4WD and Axial Products up to now. Just ordered a Sawback leaf spring kit to add to the garage to try out. Does anyone know the shock length? Have been told to upgrade the driveshafts, servo mount and shocks during the build. Found the other two and ordered also but not the shocks. Thanks

I use stock scx10 shocks without the springs. 40wt. oil. Maybe not the most scale looking, but they work well.

I do have a set of 4 RC4WD Gelande takeoffs, they may be in the ballpark.

I installed the rc4wd Bilstien 90 mm shocks I think I have 30w oil in them.they work pretty good. I also running single leaf in the front. The stock double in the rear with no zip tie. It flexís better. Just remember itís a leaf spring vehicle and wonít flex like an Scx10-2 or anything like that.
