So I broke a OME nitro shock the other day down at Hollister. Need some advice on whether it was over stretched or crushed.
HD springs with 1" spacers front and rear, shock lowering kits front and rear, sway bars still connected. No bump stop mods.
Shock broke but was still charged, spring got dislocated, spring got put back in, shock then popped, piston fell and fluid everywhere.
So my question is did this happen because the bump stop was not adjusted, letting the shock get crushed? Or did it flex too far and yank the shock too hard, thus breaking the top weld?
Second question, what shocks next? Thinking the adjustable TF ones Jethro spoke of in the recent RRC shock post by Dino.
