    1 oz per shock thatís half a bottle
    I like mine stiff so itís at 70 front and 100 rear

    Team associated or team Lodi are both good choices

    I'm running 45 front and 60 rear. I believe it takes more than 1oz per shock. I buy losi 4oz big bottles of oil, and 2 shocks use 2/3 of that 4 oz bottle. It's closer to 1.5 oz. Per shock. 1 2oz bottle per shock, and you'll have some left over.

    Edit: just remember if your gonna go up in oil weight drastically like I did, you need to go up in spring rate too, or handling will suffer. Im using the 1.4 springs with r45wt in front and 1.5 springs with 60 wt in rear

    Would I be able to keep stock springs and do 50k weight all around? 30k all around is stock right?

    Itís not 30k. Just 30 or 50. I run 60 all Around with 1.4 spring in the front and 1.5ís on the rear. For a heavy truck Iím impressed


    Somehow builds are never done....

    An economical approach:
    Pick up 1 set of 1.5 springs for the rear, and change rear oil to 50. Don't touch the front.

    I've ran that setup and it works well for a stock truck. As long as your not skying it
