My Shock Rebuild With Suspension Technologies
Last year, I had my stock rear shock done by Michael Alex of Suspension Technologies in Pinellas Park, FL. This guy is Da Man.
I didn't know much about shocks and didn't even have the vocabulary to tell him what was wrong with it, just that it didn't feel right. He explained to me some of the known problems (like a leaky air bladder?) and recommended a few fixes.
Once I gave him the go ahead, he put the shock on a dyno, showed me the graph (which I had no idea how to read) and gave me several before and after printouts: Once I learned exactly what i was looking at, I understood just how bad our stock shock is, at only 5000 miles or so.
Thou Shalt Respect Thy 10, And Revel In It's Power, For It Is Good, And Plentiful.
