I am curious as well. When I looked at them at the Snowdeo it looks like it’s just the spindle and upper a-frame. What I don’t know is if there are different mounting points.

I wonder if it requires a different length shock? The lower mount point is significantly higher.


I can see how the handling can change quite a bit with the new geometry. That is a bigger factor than the clearance.

Anyone know what was the actual changes? I am thinking about bolting one on my 19 if it is possible.
From what I've been able to find out, the only changes are the new upper A arm and the taller forged spindles. The rest stayed the same....including the mounting locations.

I can see where the extra length below the lower arm would help in giving the front end more bite. It's adding more ski pressure without having to adjust anything else (limiter straps, etc).

I'm just curious as to why you'd want to make this update? <img src="http://www.hardcoresledder.com/forums/images/smilies/dunno.gif" border="0" alt="" title=":dunno:" class="inlineimg" />

I may have to go for it. Did the shock lengths stay the same?

I put on Powder Pro skis. Same effect. The spindle bolt is 1 inch higher off the ground than factory skis. Most people don't realize, but a Powder pro bottom is the same as a SLT bottom on hardpack. The powder pro has a second vertical wall for steering in powder. Hence the taller profile and better turning in loose snow.

Is spacing between the mount points on the spindle the same? Just curious.
Yes, the only difference in measurements like I posted earlier, the ski mount is lowered 1.5 inches.
