Default 2012 Renegade Shocks

Have a '12 Renegade Adrenaline, 600 ho ETEC. It squats down about 5-6", and when I get off there's very little return to the original stance. I've got my torsion springs on the stiffest settings, without much difference. I've been told that on this chassis only the "X" package shocks could be rebuilt.

Is this the case?

Specifically the rear skid shock.

You may indeed have a blown rear shock. Yours is non rebuildable. Find an x rear shock, big upgrade from yours. It could also be something in your suspension may be binding. If you are capable, pull the rear suspension out of skid and take it all apart, checking shafts for rust, etc. Is the pivot in rear arm greased?

Adrenaline skid shocks can be rebuilt. Jim Bouwman in Garson Mb. Modified mine to be rebuildable.
