don't waste your cash integy is almost a synonym for over priced crap

Not sure on the rustler's shocks but I've seen ppl come into my LHS when I am looking for parts saying the shock bent or burst from a few foot jump, and the shop keepers just tell em go put their stocks back on cause integy is crap. I've also read alot of posts on these forums about their poor quality.
the few integy parts I have (got em already on used vehicles) seem IMO lower quality than some of the cheap chinese parts I've had. I've taken them all off actually and bought the stocks.

But thats just based on what I've read and seen with my own eyes.

Integy shocks are crap... I had a set on my xxxt, they leak oil, are a pain to bleed, and are overpriced. Throw on some associated shocks if you want a smooth set up.

so you would only be throwing half the cash in the garbage
seriously might as well start the cash on fire would probably give you more enjoyment, and burn longer than the integy shocks would last

i agree with what he said. integy has been known to be crap for years now and it dosent seem like they will ever change.
If it was up to me ide avoid them when ever possable.
