gonna have a look at it in abit and try and find out what i did wrong
well it looks like i found the problem!
i had the bottom yoke upside down.. theyve got abit of a upstand on the one side so u dont have to try and get the washers inbetween (good idea torrance!)
so i had movement there which would explain the tank slappers

also i took the shocks off again and found that when you do the bottom bit up tight (the bit that locks up over the lower o-ring) it drags pretty bad on the shaft so ive put a drop of locktite on it and didnt lock it down as much and it seems quite smooth now,

hopefully test it out again tomorrow to see if ive cured it
