Not doing too well?   What do you  mean?

Did you try a rebuild.
New o rings , maybe a different piston and new/different oil.

A rebuild is easy and a lot cheaper..  :) :)

Upgrading is always possible of course but not always necessary

Stock Flux shocks are great. I use them on my extended nitro and love them.

Stock shocks mounted inside the arms with stiffer springs and oil is the best option from what I've seen and read. I have been using red hellfire springs and 35 wt oil + the shocks mounted like this and I have yet to break one after lots and lots of huge wrecks. I even broke an rpm arm but the shocks have done great. It will slightly rub the front steering link but it's worth it I think. The stiffer springs and oil will stop the shocks from bottoming out too hard as well which causes breaks.

i am also still using the stock shocks, opened them up few days ago, one of them lost just a bit of oil, refilled it and its working great again. I will  also move to the inside, lots of people recommend this
