Rear Shock Spec's

I'm am in the process of up grading my rear shocks and thought it would be good to post the spec's of the stock spring rate and total extended length.

To test this I used a press and a 500 plate scale.

First test was to put 35psi of air into a shock and compress it 1/8 inch. This gave me a reading of 86#.From there I zeroed the scale and then compressed the shock 1 inch. This gave me a reading of 312#.

Second test was 0psi of air into the shock and again compressed it a 1/8inch. This gave a reading of 74#. From there I zeroed the scale and compressed the shock 1 inch. This gave me a reading of 269#.

I hope this helps others in the on going quest to know your ride.

From center of eyelet to center of eyelet is 14inch's
