Default Stiff suspension

I bought a proline power wagon body for my GEN8 that necessitated removal of the inner fender wells and rock sliders. Also I had to shorten the wheelbase to its shortest length. Now the truck doesn’t squat when put on a surface and the suspension is a lot stiffer than it was before. Anybody experience this? Should I add weight somehow back to it?

First, PICS! Because POWERWAGON!!!!

OK, silliness aside, I hate the idea of adding weight up high. I would look for any way to change the shocks or coils to let it drop to where you want.

But pics.

Sounds like you need some shock tuning i would look at new springs first or just dump those cheap shocks and get some nice expensive shocks that come with different springs

You could try to remove the preload adjuster coller that should give you some shock action
