Good Shocks/Bad Shocks

Post by SavageGoZoom » Sat Mar 19, 2005 1:45 pm

I want to make a list of all shocks for the savage and have reviews of how they work, how bad they leak, and how good they look.


Stockers: work good, cheap, dont leak

Integy: LEAK LEAK LEAK, expensive, shaft bend, but the look nice

Hpi threaded aluminum: Look good, kinda spendy, dont leak to bad

Hot boddies threaded aluminum: Leak, expensive, shafts bend

Team blue star: not to expensive, look nice, dont leak to bad

If you have tried any other type of shock please post that as well.

i got a set of the hotbodies and they dont leak at all, and they wouldn't be bent if i hadn't had the crystal fall out and the truck run full speed into a much heavier, more stationary object such as an 04 toyota tacoma.
but i was surprised to only find one slightly bent. i have heard bad things about these shocks but i have no complaints soo far. for the price though i think i would just go with the stockers
savage #1---sh.28 etc...........
savage #2---colari .30 etc......

leaking is a product of bent shafts. I have Integy shocks and they dont leak. the shafts however are terrible and need to be switched w/ hpi or else they will bend and then leak.

I just bent an Integy shock shaft today, but I was told at my LHS that they bend easily and that the stock HPI shafts fit right in, so I'll tackle the switch-over tonight.
