Default emaxx shocks

I was curious is there any ways to stiffen the stock shocks. Or does anyone know where I can find stronger springs for the shocks. I put new motors on and the shocks seem weak sagging and slams on jumps.

buy some stiffer springs, and get some thicker shock oil. also put a length of fuel tubing around the shafts to prevent bottoming out

When I had my e-maxx with the MM combo I bought the integy spring set:

5 different sets of springs to see what you like. I ended up using the red(hard) and was pretty satisfied.

Hey Masterhacker I bought those springs you suggested. By far the best dollar I've spent yet they are way stronger than the stock springs. Even with the heavy motors.

Which ones worked the best? Iadded the FLM A arms and the bulk heads and the weight is a problem with the stock socks.
