As you can see, this front is looking nice. It feels just about right. The back end is super bouncy this, even if i hit it hard it’s too much nicer than that. The back is also locked up on there. So we’ll show you what we’re doing here real quick it’s, pretty simple we’re, basically going to take out the piston here. I’Ve already got it unscrewed. I already drained the oil and uh we’re just going to pop this out of here, like so peel this off. So what we’re gon na do is we’re gon na drill out these four holes. What i’m using is? I found this to be a pretty good size, a three thirty seconds drill bit. We just put it in the hole and drill them out with our trusty railway power tool and get it back off of here, and just one handed assemble this again and we’re, going to put it back together and top it off with 30 weight oil right now. I’M testing out the blue springs by low c. These are their eight pound rears for the um, but you can see that feels good. It doesn’t have that squishy noise of a new one, real nice i’m grab. I have a new one, they’re much stiffer they’re, very firm and there’s so much air inside that you can hear being generated just air bubbles quite quick. I hope that it’s coming out on camera so stiff and this truck’s not that heavy on the upper half of it it’s just too much it doesn’t have enough compression.
I don’t think so. This softens it up some and it makes it so it’s a little bit easier to get a little bit of that suspension. Action going so that’s what we’re doing leaving the top upper on these are blue rears on the uh, the front i’m running the gold and those seem good. I just want to test these for a little bit different stiffness. I think it’s, a little more stiff for the rears and uh see how it does there’s definitely like when i accelerate. It was just you know, basically bottoming out almost under the golds, without 30 weight in it, so we stiffened it up, but we drilled it out. So it had a little room to breathe and that feels pretty good to me. It’S smooth, so um that’s kind of how we’re tuning them for now and we’ll see how it does when we finish it all up and we get that locked one removed. I have extras and spares and bent shock, shafts and stuff here’s a bent one that was replaced that wasn’t on the truck is in my bin of stuff. I try and keep extra shock shafts and have some that are ready to fix so that i just switch out the broken ones and put them in so that next time i bend one. I repair those ones and i kind of keep the circular thing going. Um but we’re also throwing in one new one we’re gon na do both of them kind of rebuilt here at the same time, put on two new rears uh, so that one is not that one is brand new.
This one is not but um. I put a new shaft on it and it wasn’t that worn, so we’re gon na go ahead and finish up the process of screwing this back together and it takes about one of these complete containers of it to go in so there’s. A little bit left in here but uh filled it all the way up, just finished this one and it feels so much better than it was just a second ago. So we got two of them, both feeling nice and smooth, very similar action, so that’s good. We got them pretty much paired up, so these uh will go on the rear of it and uh. I have a spare that i can use here. This is the new one i needed the little plastic end of it. I’Ll get it off. One of the other broken ones when i uh get it off and i’ll put this back in the box as a new ready to go one. So i should, while i have it all out, go ahead and just drill this out put 30 weight in it. So it’s ready to rock and roll um, and so i’ll probably do that anyway, thanks for tuning in as always guys, that’s just a quick update on the primal what’s going on with the big girl down there she’s running, i had her fired up and running, but I have a locked up shock still so we’ll get it going, get the uh limiting strap situation worked out here.
We’Ll have to kind of fake it a little bit, but um yeah should be good to go anyway.
