This is a set of optional RPM Shock Shaft Guards, and are intended for use with Traxxas 1/10 scale vehicles, as well as the Durango DEX, DESC and DEST vehicles equipped with big bore shocks. Rocks, dirt and debris striking shock shafts lead to dents, dings and burrs, which in turn, leads to torn shock seals. Torn shock seals means leaky shocks and poor shock performance. RPM Shock Shaft Guards shield the shock shaft from those deteriorating elements, prolonging the life of the shock shaft, which improves the long-term performance of the suspension and in turn, prolongs the time between shock rebuilds!

RPM Shock Shaft Guards are a simple design, that replaces your stock shock spring cup with one that has a thin but tough shield rising up to the base of the shock body, completely blocking debris from striking the shock shaft. The back and sides are open, which prevents debris from building inside the guard as well. The kit includes replacement oversized shock rod ends, improving durability and consistency of the shock pivot ball. Additionally, RPM redesigned the top of the rod end so it is square. That square end keys into the shock shaft guard for directional control. The front shield of the guard covers over 100 degrees of frontal exposure! RPM Shock Shaft Guards are zero friction protection devices, meaning the guard never touches the working elements of the shock.

RPM Shock Shaft Guards are sold in sets of four, including four rod ends for the shocks and are stock replacement items. Nothing more is needed for installation and they are available in Black, Blue and Dyeable White materials.

NOTE: RPM Shock Shaft Guards fit all Traxxas 1/10th scale molded shocks as well as Traxxas Big Bore shocks but will not fit the Traxxas Jato. They fit the T-Maxx and E-Maxx but will not work with RPM T/E-Maxx A-arms due to clearance limitations on the upper arm. Additionally, these are only compatible with Durango vehicles equipped with Big Bore shocks.

After reading one of the other reviews, I too bought these for my Proline Powerstroke shocks on my Traxxas 4x4 and they fit perfectly, awesome

These say they will fit the Traxxas big bore shocks, I bought them for my ultimate and went to install and they don't work at all. Maybe I'm missing something but the springs were to large to even sit on the guards..

Pretty cool product. Have these installed on Pro-Line Powerstrokes on a Slash 4x4 MT Conversion. RPM's shock ends don't fit the Powerstroke shafts, so I just used the guards with the shock ends that came with the shocks. Can't lock them in place so they don't spin, but haven't had one slip on me yet because the fit is perfect. Nice.
