My Shocks Are Binding

Are your shocks binding, feeling sticky and/or not performing to your likeness? RC4WD offers two types of shocks:


If you have Friction Shocks – Do not require oil for dampening:

  • Apply a small amount of oil to keep the seals lubricated and functioning properly.


If you have Oil Filled Shocks – Utilizes oil to aid in dampening:

  • Try using a different oil as varying thicknesses of oil can enhance shock performance.
  • If you have too much oil, this can also prevent the shock from compressing. Remove a small amount of oil until the shock properly compresses.
