You loosened them too much :eek: Be careful!!! Make sure the shocks and A-arm are free of any snow or ice while adjusting them.

You have to adjust them with the front of sled jacked up, no pressure on skis.

that is what i did[/b]
if you adjusted them properly with the front of the sled elevated, there is no way that the spring retainers could have fell out.

Again, lift the front of sled so skis are off the ground. Back off IFS springs until they are loose and rattle.. Then retighten the spring until they are just snug and don't rattle.
No way the retainers can fall out then.

I noticed right away that lowering the front end by backing off the front springs reduced body roll and the "tippy" feeling that the stock suspension setup had. It just seems to handle better with them set low as possible.
