How to switch DRZ back to stock height?

Recommended Posts

After a month or so of looking I finally found a DRZ I would like to buy. The problem is that it has been lowered with a link in the rear and new shorter springs in the front. The link is easy to remove but I am not sure how difficult the spring change would be. No mechanical skills to speak of. Is changing out the springs in the fork a difficult job? If I took it to a shop how much should I expect to pay? The guy who has this DRZ say's it would take him a day to swap them out and I don't think it should take that lhttp://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=25#

Bang Headong. :thumbsup:

swapping fork springs is an easy job.

a search here would probably find everything you need to swap them.

if you get a shop to do it, i would think any reputable shop should be able to do it in less than 2 hours. 1 hour should actually be enough. most shops post their hourly rate. i would guess $75-150 labor at the shop.

If it has shorter springs, it should also have an internal spacer that limits the travel. Shorter springs alone would totally screw things up! So you're looking at replacing the springs and identifing the spacers and removing them. Look at an exploded view of the forks from a parts book it will show you what you need to remove.
