RC How To:

Savage X / Baja 5B Shock Mod (2)

 

 

The next parts are what the shocks will connect to, the shock towers and the lower suspension arms.

 

For the shock towers I used ones from GH Racing (02026). They are nice and thick up top and will not bend or break from the added stress of using a 4 shock setup.

 

GH Racing Shock Towers for Savage

 

 

I drilled out and threaded the top slot to accept a 4mm (M4) screw.

 

To thread the slot use a 9/64 bit and a steel screw to thread. To drill through use a 5/32 bit.

 

I recommend threading them. This only makes them stronger as the it makes the entire shock tower a nut essentially.
