The new mounting bolt and bushing is basicly the ones they used on the edge sleds. The bushing has the threads in it so there is no nut sticking out. You will need the thin 7/8 wrench as in the past. Just put some in a couple weeks ago.

These are the ones I installed on my 06 600ho. they work great seeing that I weight 235lbs.
The 16.25 is lbs/inch I think.
They are really heavy duty springs. I set my on the lightest setting and its sits good with me sitting on it.

Install isn't bad, but I've had the suspension out of my sled several times before. It's always best if you can have someone help you especially when you get to putting the rear bolts back in. You only need to remove the rear suspension-to-chassis bolts (one on each side) to replace the springs.

Here is what I would do to install new springs
1 Raise the back of the sled off the ground. Make sure sled is about a 1ft off the gound.
2 Remove the rear bolts.
3 Skid should pivot on front bolts allowing the rear to drop down.
4 Take tension off the springs by removing the long arm from the spring block. Let it hang down on the track.
5 Remove mounting arm on torsion arm. This is splined and should slid off with a little help.
6 Springs should slide off. Note the new springs will look huge compared to new larger springs.
7 New springs should slide on. Note there is a right side spring and a left side spring.
8 Reinstall mount arm on torsion shaft. Splined.
9 Use a jack under the track to lift the skid into position to start bolts. Make sure to use Lock Tite.
10 place prings arms into blocks.
Done.

Hope this helps.

Unhappy

Upgrading these springs will obviously help the rear suspension from bottoming out. Has anyone upgraded the shocks? I just purchased a 08 IQ Shift and they installed the 11# springs on this sled which is to light for a guy like me (250 Lbs). If I hit the bumps hard I get her to bottom out often.

I have read this whole post and want to know would you all recommend I upgrade to the 12.5# or 16.25# springs? Do they have ride weight ranges? I would like a stiffer rear suspension however it would be nice to be able to soften it up if I was going on long trail rides. Will the 16.25# be to stiff? Also the 16.25# springs are not offered on the parts list for the IQ Shift as an option will they still work. I did notice they are not offered on the 06 600 HO either and it sounds like someone is using them on that sled.

Along with the weak springs they also put Ryde FX MPV shocks in the rear. What effect might I expect with upgrading the shocks? Will this help with the bottoming out? The current shocks are not adjustable and I am thinking if I can get to an adjustable shock that might help me get a little stiffer ride. If I do this I might be able to get by with the 12.5# springs and run the shocks a little stiffer????

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

thanx for the help. I have put my new spring on, But my rear shock is broken. it is a Walker Evens shock adjustable. it is now pressure when i start to push it. half down it start to get some pressure on. so i think it is broken. is it oil or gas on this shock.
there is no spring on the rear shock.


is this shock good or should i try a difrent shock. ryd or °hlins.
