So recently i got a pair of aluminum shocks my friend wasn't using anymore and i decided to try and combine my aluminum shocks with his and put dual shocks on my amp! It worked! It looks kinda crappy but i think its pretty cool! (Yes i have arrma electronics in my car 😂)

PoseiDon, that does not look crappy, in fact, it is pretty cool looking. I might just try that on my Amp. How does the truck handle the dual shocks? Ingenuity, way to go.

PoseiDon, you could space the shocks further apart by using spacers at the mounting points. That way you would be able to use both springs. You would however have to use a longer M3 mounting screw on all four mounting points.Just a suggestion.

Nah i dont think i can do that. Driveshaft would be in the way and too many things would be hanging out.. also i had to move the link to the other side of the hub to clear the extra shock.

It handles okay i guess, if you get 15 weight then it would be like 30 weight. I only had 20 weight so it was too thick. It was so thick the spring barely did anything.. i had to crank the preload to get the a arms level. I also decided to take them off cause i wanted thinner oil for on road use. But i might put them back on... got a new body done recently so it might actually look really cool... but I'm not sure since i want it to handle really good right now..
