Replacing rear shock

Recommended Posts

it is very easy if you have the right tools. A spring compressor will make it a 5 minute ordeal.

first, loosen the two rings on top of the spring all the way.

second, the bottom spring holder is two pieces, an outer ring and and inner ring.

hit the outer ring with a rubber mallet up towards the top of the shock.

third, take the spring off and reverse the process.

It is very easy to do, once you start, it will be easy to figure it out.

most shops will do this for free or a few bucks as it only takes a few minutes to do.

Don't forget to set your sag when u get the new one on.

I've done it without a spring compressor. There will just be a little spring pressure for the first inch or so, and easier if you have an 'unshock' bearing on there too :) !

The trick is the bottom spring perch, that looks like it's one piece, but it's not. Like he said, mallet the outter part up from the bottom and you'll see the 'c' clip...
