    What is the this missing part called on my Slash 4x4 Platinum

    I just noticed my front shocks stay down after i put weight on the car, i think this is the problem.

    Had a little "get together" with a tree the other day, i bet that's when i happend. :-)
    I just wonder, what is the name missing part(s)?
    I'm looking at the exploaded view;

    Do i only need the #2668 part?

    It is called a spring cup. Don't know the part number. You might want to check your camber link, because they are supposed to connect to the hub not the A-arm.

    Those look like GTR shocks, there should be a shock kit with spare parts you could buy or just order individual parts. A tip for losing those cups, if the spring doesn't keep a slight amount of tension on full shock extension the cups have a tendency to fall off. I don't see a problem with the camber rod but your sway bar link is missing a screw on the arm.

    Spring retainer. It's a bummer that they don't get sold separately.

    Ah i see, thanks ALOT. You guys rock. I will pick these up ASAP.
    I'm seeing the missing screw too, and it's the same on the other side. But it seems solid enough. Wierd.

    What screw are you referring to? I'm not seeing anything missing?

    The newer sway bar links don't use the screws. They come with a pivot ball on the end that screws into the a-arms with a 2mm or 2.5mm hex driver.

    Didn't know that, it looked like a hollow ball in the picture.
