    Shock questions (spring and cap)

    So just bought my xmaxx I enjoy the super soft suspension specially for the area I drive in. What is a good spring/oil upgrade to just remove the sag from it? It's squatting pretty hard now haha. Also any recommended shock cap upgrades? I snapped the cap right at the pin of a toddler sized jump lol. I don't plan to send the car the moon maybe 5/6ft off ground landings.

    I just did 50wt shock oil, aluminum shock caps/spring retainers and 1.4 springs front and 1.5 springs rear. Seems to be best all around setup from what ive read and heard from others.
