My Olin’s shocks in the front are at the bottom 13 of their stroke with me sitting on the quad. So I put wire ties on the shocks and did some riding. Well the were bottoming out over medium whoops. So I called the shop I got them from and told them something is wrong. They must have gotten the order wrong and the springs were way to light for my 215 pounds. They told me it is not the spring but the slow speed compression valving bring them in and they will revalve them.

Where should my Sag be in the front? I have 3.5" in the front.

My Question is how can valving correct this? Or are they just trying to scr*w me?

If it is sitting with that much sag, the spring rate is soft. The valving controls the speed of the skocks movement. I think you will need a stiffer spring.

Yeah, if they don't get it right this time, I'd definitely go elsewhere with your money, shocks aren't cheap and I sure would want to have someone who knows what they're doin help me.

I always say that the shocks are only as good as the man that builds them.
