    Shock Troubleshooting help

    Thanks for the inputs. I rebuilt the ‘slow’ one this am and not it moves like the ‘fast’ shock. All i did was replace the floating piston seal & the check valve seals. Didn’t find a smoking gun... i hate it when that happens,

    Shock Troubleshooting help

    When I have paddles on they hit the resi’s so I put a spacer on them. Old shocks = baby reservoirs So do you think the slow shock is wrong and the fast shock is normal?

    Shock Troubleshooting help

    New one for me. 2.5 bypasses, same nitrogen pressure, same valving... one is really easy to move and self extends quickly. I have replaced all the seals and it still does it. Haven’t replaced the wear band... any other ideas? The firm one wont even extend on it’s own. The fast one felt like...

    100ll Avgas Ok to run?

    I don't think that is accurate. It is not legal for highway use (similar to red dye) but off-road use is not regulated. Sent from my iPad using race-deZert mobile app

    Spring rate selection

    Math seems pretty good. You also get some spring effect from the nitrogen charge in the two shocks. Driving style has an impact too, if you plan to bomb it you might want more spring than the 2" preload rule. With Fox bypasses you have more bleed than kings so that will help. 10's ion both...

    Have a weird issue with a Vortec 8.1. Intermittent Reduced Engine Power code. Anyone have experience with this? Done a lot of troubleshooting and I'm down to either a software issue or wiring. It only happens after shutting the engine down and letting it sit for a bit. Not a hot start issue...

    Trying to get rid of choppy ride

    Moving the crossover point should be a step in the right direction. You'll move from 130lbs/in to 275lbs/in. That's a lot more spring rate to work with. Sent from my iPhone using race-deZert
