I know this is a dumb question, but how are you guys lowering your bikes? Just tightening down the preload spring?

to lower it you would loosen the nut on the shock, then you will have to adjust your clickers for a lower ride heigth. Why do you wan tto lower it?

I don't, but I do feel top heavy a lot. I've been messing with my shocks trying to get them dialed in how I like. Problem is I ride across a lot of different terrain. Mainly sand. I just don't like how sloppy it feels with the compressions all the way let out. Rebound is 2 clicks slower than stock. Sometimes when I make big jumps it bucks the ass end up and I end up nose diving

I'm fixing to start running in some endurance type woods races, and I need to get something figured out. Maybe I will try stiffening up the preload some.

I spoke with AReed for a good bit. He's gonna have me fixed up. Gonna revalve my shocks. Waiting on a dual rate spring pack once he gets that all lined out. Gonna try the shocks out next weekend in my first race.

I bought elka shock they are about 2 inch lower with the same wheel travel
So do you have the same amount of up travel with a lower ride height or do they just have the vehicle sitting lower?
