I have a 03 xc 600 w/ a 136" x1" track studded having trouble bottoming out going through deeper holes .If I move the rear supendtion to the lower holes will this suport it ? or should I use lowering brackets such as the ones from SLP or is this the wrong way to fix the problem? :dunno:

Thinking lower holes aren't the answer, but would help to know a little more about a few things to try and figure out what is. Last time/milage since shocks were rebuilt? Rear scissor stop (RRSS) setting? Kit used for 136"? Still using middle hole for lower scissor pivot? How much sag? How sled is primarily used?

When I streached my '01 600 Edge to a 136, the kit instructions said to move the rear suspension to the lower brackets. That made stearing VERY hard, but I did not bottom out. I moved it back into the normal position and put the heavy duty springs on and it gave me the balance I was looking for. I have also put the rear sisor stop to the forward position and have the spring tension on the stiffest setting.

I weigh 250 with all my gear. It gave me the balance I was looking for. SLightly stiff suspension for the roughies, but good ski pressure for the twisties.

the best way to stop it from bottoming out is revalve that POS position sensitive shock or get a clicker! getting heavy springs causes to fast of rebound with stock shocks..... that what I found with my xc.... the stock fox skid frame shocks are not all that bad once someone revalves them and bypasses the dead band in the middle ! I am sure someone like Jb shocks can help you with this.
