    Broke a front shock today. What else will fit these? I only need 1 but I'm sure they come in a pack of 2....

    @yeroc1982 check out the DEX8T shocks from Team Durango, many members here seem to be pretty happy with them.

    I buy the china brand shocks from EBAY, are exactly the same design, color and dimensions. Its a no brainer where ARRMA is getting their parts from.

    There may be minor differences here and there, they work as it should and can withstand the punishment when bashing.

    I am pretty much certain those are the ones. There may be minor differences between sellers. I think I found them for about 11 dollars shipped, those are too expensive. Let me take measurements when I get back from work this afternoon, and if possible snap a few and upload. The China chinchins, as I call them lol, come w slightly stiffer springs. Its a matter of using the stock ones, play/tune w oil weight, spring collar adjustments.

    In terms of mm size its close enough to OEM, maybe 2 or 3mm off give or take, the 140mm / 122mm.

    Some correction, the 118mm is about 6 to 7mm shorter. Its been a while since I bought mine, and its difficult to track because seller and merchandise changes quick on Ebay, most of the time. Thank you Hotshot, it helped update some of the information I had states earlier.

    For the front, something close to the ones shown in the link, 122mm;

    https://m.ebay.com/itm/122mm-alumin...hash=item4d54d6fb7b:m:miDfzIOfFlPQhMNwrPPgO-Q


    And for the rear setup;

    https://m.ebay.com/itm/New-140mm-Al...694230&hash=item4d551ed0a7:g:XPAAAOSwXYtYtM9p

    It does not to be that same seller or item, its to give an idea to the ones I bought. Am not qualifying to any A-main soon, they are (imo) ideal for bashing.

    Good luck
