Seems the Ravager suspension is too soft. Springs feel week and it bottoms out very easily after small jumps. Should I try harder springs, thicker shock fluid, or just increase the spring pre-load? Just wondering what others have tried and what has worked and what hasn't. TY.

Well you can go all 3, get the harder springs (the blacks don't cut it IMO), Give it a little more preload and go up a little on the thickness of the shock oil (40-50wt)...

Thanks Guys:

I'll see what's available for harder springs first. I already have a 1/2 inch of exposed threads above the spring adj. nut and it's very weak. I'll leave the shock oil till last as the buggy doesn't seem to bounce, just bottom out easily.

You can increase the oil capacity of the Ravager shocks to improve the consistancy of the damping with a set of shock reservoirs from
