Shock Towers for Big Bore and Worlds RERE

Post by RC10Riley »

I want to install big bore shocks on my Worlds RERE. What shock towers do I use? I think the standard ones are not the right size for big bore. Also, what does big bore actually mean? Thank you.

Big bore fronts are .89” same length as a b3/4 front shock. Big bore rears will fit a stock tower but are a tad shorter.

Without measuring I want to say it’s around 1/4” taller in the front and around 1/8” shorter in the rear

We (Factory Works) sell several styles of front and rear towers including big bore specific towers.

This is great. I can't seem to find them to buy on FW website. Do you have a link to them?

Website is outdated. We sell on eBay or direct (direct is cheaper for you- no eBay fees)

Fronts only would be $16.50 shipped outside eBay, and the front and rear sets would be $26.50 shipped. You can send me a pm here for details. We send a paypal invoice. I’m out until Wednesday on vacation so replies might take a bit longer than usual

I use Big Bore shocks from the Associated B6. They are around 38-40 dollars a set on eBay. Comes with everything, including springs.

It was a "chop shop" on eBay. They were selling B6D shock sets. I got two complete sets from them. Unfortunately, I don't see any now or I'd link you to them.
