thats not true, i mounted some savage shocks to my chassis, but then again my shocks are very raked back because my chassis is pretty hacked, but it does work well with the right set up

I tried every which way with the Savage shocks and TXT chasis and it just didn't work very well. I'm not saying it cant be done but I know from my experience that there are other ways that work way better.

hey dirk, i was looking at your JR, and i noticed that you were using a limiting strap, i tried that, and i had horrible results, cause it just brings out the worst in the txt twist. and for me it made the ride a bit bouncy cause the shocks were being held down.. idk, just my thoughts...

When I had them attached to the same bolt as the lower link, the right front and the left rear shocks were hitting the bent upper links limiting the articulation.

The shocks were too raked back with the new lower mounts causing the suspension to be too soft, so I relocated the upper shock mounts to the original place I had them. I think this is a good setup for now, we will see after our pratice session tomorrow.



I am staying with this configuration. I even tried a few other configs but went back to this setup.

Here is a shot of the new 4.75" clearance (from 4.5") and a shot of full articulation.



The other side

Yeah I hear ya. I was skeptical at first to but once I did cut it I did not regret it at all. Also I have tried to cut as little as possible so I can revert back to my old setup. The performance gains are amazing!

I think the chassis rails are only $20. So it is not that expensive to replace them.

I just baught those off ebay and am only using 4 of them. If you are interested I could send you the other 4 for like $50 shipped. For 8 it was $114 shipped, I figured I could just relist them on ebay, but if you want them they're yours. I still haven't recieved them yet, but if you're interested let me know.

TimsXJ, are those savage size shocks?

I am interested, but I told rckjeep that I would go in with him so let me see what he wants to do. I don't want to leave him hanging.

Thanks
