Default Edge skid ready to go in

Got an 02 XC 600 skid for 125.00 fox shock and pss shock. Had em rebuilt and the issues with the pss addressed by Dave at DLS in Plymouth. All new bearings and everythingís greased. Itís going into my 98 XC 700.

Iíll pull it out again this spring and have it powder coated. Until then, itíll be a tweaking and tuning fest on the Rum river. Any suggestions from guys w this swap? Everything set as soft as possible right now.

I did the same suspension swap into my 2000 XC 500 a few years ago and it is very straight forward. The JB Shock dimensions are spot on. I actually made a template and that worked perfect to mark and drill the new locations in the tunnel. If you are near Lakeville let me know as I still have the template you can use. I also used bolts with nylock nuts to secure mounting brackets instead of rivets though.

It might have been your post that I took the screenshot of. I like the bolts and nylock nuts.

Iím a mile from fastenal on Hwy 10 in Ramsey a little far to get that template from you. Iíll be alright. Thank you though.

check out the little rollers that the torsion spring rides on. If any flat spots get new ones.

to put it in the sled, unhook the torsion springs to get the rear holes to line up. But then you also have to pay attention to the shock link - if if flips over and down it can make for some and bloody knuckles before you figure it out

Awesome! Thanks for the tips. Waiting on one the small aluminum torque brackets that didnít come w the skid. Iíll be putting this in over the next few days depending on free time. On the torsion spring rollers... thereís some type of rubber isolator in there... Iíll throw up a pick when I get home later.

All finished up...

Now to do something about that crooked snow flap and that red rear bumper. Drives me nuts

A few yrs ago there was some people here that thought I was on crack when I said to add a grease zerk. Currently its 65$ for just those bushings from Polaris. Easy shot of grease isn't going to hurt. My 3 current sleds have zerks added and my 97 440zr bought new I added them.
