is running double shock towers on a 10T worth it? it seems like i would need
longer ball end screws,where can i find these? it runs graphite towers
now,and they are holding fine at 3-4 foot jumps,but when i start jumping it
5-8 feet high wil they still hold? also i am using 30wt oil,should i get
thicker oil to handle the extra weight of landing? maybe throw double shocks
on every arm?

I broke mine on my sport at about 6  feet and built me an aluminum shock
tower hadn't had any problems yet.

If you run too thick of oil, sometimes it's too much pressure for the seal and
it blows halfway through your run.
