LST shock conversion with Nova shock towers?

Post by chrisexv6 » Thu Aug 10, 2017 8:44 am

Read through the LST conversion thread but didnt see anyone with Nova shock towers:

http://novarcproducts.blogspot.com/2010 ... stock.html

They look very similar to FLM towers, so I was wondering...can I get the FLM conversion kit (i.e. the triangular base standoffs) and use them with the shock towers I already have?

Is anything else required for mounting the bottom of the shock? Ive been out of the loop so long, I dont even remember what version a-arms I have on my truck (how can you tell?)

Thanks in advance.

-Chris

You can use any lst standoff. Stock, flm, irc.

The bottom really needs the brackets. You can drill and bolt to the arm but it will break easy

Any source for the brackets?

I like Innovative RC stuff but I know actually getting them is like hitting the lotto.

Bummer, thats what I was afraid of.

Anything special needed to mount the HP big bores instead?

I currently have 4 RacerX SuperShock and they haven been great, but I bent a shaft and finding a replacement shaft seems like a long shot.

Sounds like a plan! Cheaper and easier to come by, too.
