Rebuilding/replacing rear shock

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at an old Polaris Indy to mess around home with, possible take it to Mille Lacs when I go to the shack/etc... Looked at one today, when I pushed down on the rear suspension, it didn't bounce back up. What kind of money is it to either rebuild or replace the shock?

Did you look to see if the shock just needed to be adjusted a little more before you think it needs to be rebuilt?

  It shouldn't bounce back up. It should come up as the shock allows it otherwise it would be like sitting on the end of a diving board.   If its not coming up at all then the pivot points on the suspension are corroded which happens from lack of use and lack of being greased.

 If your lucky you can shoot grease in the fittings and then work it up and down, that might free things up.  You might find from lack of maintenance the zerk fittings are froze and won't allow you to get grease into them.  Take one out and get a replacement and try again.  Otherwise a complete removal is needed to free up and clean things up.

    • Light Beer, pffffft! Kind of like the fat lady ordering 4 Big Macs, 3 orders of fries and a diet soda. 
    • So what's better? I suppose you are going to say Coors light or Miller lite?
    • Pair of loading ramps. Weight capacity is 700 pounds each. Very good condition. $50.00 for the pair. Live near Elk River MN
    • ....said no one ever.....😁
    • You want to read High Speed 1 at pins 6 and 14 of the DLC. HS CAN 2 is on pins 3&11. Some fords have Medium Speed CAN on pins 3&11. Keep this in mind when shopping for your reader.
    • Fake quote. I never said anything about 'Swans". I thought you were against fake quotes?    
    • The best light beer ever made!
    • Yikes! read the ingredients. make them from scratch. Many recipes on the web.
    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
