I just received my fox shocks for my Blue General. I have not had a lot of experience with removing/install new shocks. Can I just remove the old and slap right on the new ones? Any tricks or things I should be concerned about?
CS - Thanks for the help. I will double check on the clutch tool when I get home. Also, do you know how to change the springs? I would like to keep my blue ones to match my machine a little better. Thanks again!The two with the tender springs go in back and the single springs go up front.
Measure the ride height front and rear before you start.
Like was said before jack it up where the tires are off the ground. Remove the top and bottom bolts. Pull off old shocks and install new the same way.
EDIT: Take it for a ride before you measure the ride height.
Measure the ride height again. If too low add preload by turning the preload ring clockwise, if too high reduce preload by turing the preload ring counter clockwise.
EDIT: After every adjustment drive it around a little before you measure it again.
I never thought to include a shock wrench with the shocks. Did you get one with your General since the other side of it is a clutch tool?
