Hey I need to adjust the rear shock. Can someone explain how to do this and how the different adjustments will affect the ride? thanks

I hate to be one of those "read the manual" guys but looking at pages 16 and 17 in the owner's manual could be helpful. ;)

Are you wanting to adjust compression and rebound on the shock or do you need to adjust the pre-load on the spring as well?

there are a few good threads in the suspension section, have a look through those, you should get some good tips there

I dont konw what the compression and rebound means but the rear is bottoming out when doing jumps so i think i just have to tighten the spring.

spray the threads with some wd40 then use a large screwdriver and a hammer to turn the collars
it will look like poopie after that,go to a tool store and buy a spanner wrench.....keep it in your truck so if and when you need to adjust you got the right tool.........

I just jacked the Quad up and after i got the holding ring out of the way i adjusted the spring by hand....without any pressure on the spring they adjust extremely easly

loose screws in my head is what my buddies keep tellin me, i'm a diesel mechanic and don't really deal with screws just nuts and bolts, so i used loose nuts. i think nick needs to check this out though it may help keep him from sittin on them again....
