Default Blackfoot Xtreme swing shaft question

Hi all. I'm building a BFX and using some custom aluminum parts I saw on ebay. I have converted it to 4WD using a front gearbox. I have installed the Swing Shafts I got on ebay - I think from rcdamper. But the shaftsfeel a little too tight with the rubber o-rings installed in the gearbox joints, and seem to hinder full A-arm up-and-down motion (with no shocks installed). I currently have the o-rings installed in the front only. The rear shaftshave approximately 1/16" of play end-to-end. The fronts have no play whatsoever. Sould I use the o-rings or not? Has anyone tried these Swing Shafts in the Dagger? chassis? Thanks for any/all response.

take out the orings, they are intended to be used with dog bones, universals/cvd's and "swing shafts" don't need them.

Thanks Kaiser01! I was kinda leaning in that direction because of the tightness with the orings.
