I HAVE A 01 RAPTOR 660. I JUST INSTALLED A UM SWING ARM SKID PLATE AND THE SKID PLATE AND THE SHOCK LINKAGE RUB.AND WILL NOT LET THE GAURD MOUNT FLUSH. CAN I REMOVE SHOCK LINK AND MOUNT THE SHOCK DIRECTLY TO THE SWING? DOES IT REALLY MATTER IF U HAVEA SHOCK LINK OR IS IT A BAD IDEA AND JUST LEAVE IT AND LET THEM RUB?

The linkage drastically changes the leverage ratio for the shock, and also gives the swing-arm full motion. Unless you want to go to the emergency room on your next jump, don't do it!

I had that problem also and i had to cut a little more out of the linkage area of the skid plate w/ a recipricating saw to get it to clear.
