Actually, I'm not sure now.

These are what I got www.rcgeeks.co....-77mm-2pcs .
What sort of connector do I need for these? Do they just screw on?
(sorry, probably a dumb question)

Yes. Only 3mm screws. Balls are already in the shocks. They work a little like uniballs.

Shocks are fitted.
Should have gone for longer rear shocks though. The ones I got were 85mm and it doesn't quite give it as much ground clearance as I'd like.
Oh well, they can stay sat on it whilst I do the rest of the car up and when I can afford to I'll get some 95mm ones.
Replaced the o rings with Tamiya Red and refilled the oil (front shocks were pretty much empty on arrival)

Upon fitting the shocks, I noticed I have got a slight crack in the rear mounts. Not sure how I missed that before.
I guess I'll have to get hold of some B-Parts as well now. :(

:( did you mount the longer axle ends on the shocks (on your picts they were sold with shocks)

Fixing up and Modding a Bearhawk 2 weeks 21 hours ago #46766

Yep.
Tried long ends and at full extension the clearance wasn't quite as much as I'd like.
Should have measured better before hand.

Replaced the Rear shocks with some that actually fit.
Nice to see it with suspension that is actually working. :D

Was about to switch the motor back over to a 27T,but realised I no longer have all my old tools and so don't have an allen key small enough to remove the grub nut. That'll have to wait a bit too.
