    I have these really nice shocks in front of me..

    What to do with them, they won't fit my HotBodies Minizilla as advertised so I guess they will have to go onto my Baja.. Now I just need to know what oil Rob Recommends because although I am really really busy lately I want to fill these puppies with oil and check out their action!

    Hi rob
    When do you expect to have shocks back in stock?
    Im looking for a full set.

    I know everyone is recommending 40 weight oil for these shocks but I'm still torn between 30 and 40 weight. I'm only a basher in grass fields/gravel areas with moderate air. With my old stock shocks, I used 20 weight fork oil with medium stiffness springs. What would the performance difference be, if any, between using 30 vs. 40 silicone oil for these shocks? Any input would be appreciated.

    Without having run the pair I have yet (truck coming to install them on) the difference would be how quickly your suspension moves over the rough terrain and how hard your truck will land off of a jump.
    I am sure that running a 5B and a 5T would require different oil since there is almost a 5lb? weight difference which is 20%

    Every track and every area you bash can and will be different so using an oil that suits your driving style will differ from an oil that suits someone elses driving style.

    On the 5B with stock front A-arms, do you use part number 85422 on the front lower shock mount? There doesn't seem to be enough room.
