since i extended my bike, my rear shock in super soft and everytime i hit a dip in the road or something is bottoms out... or if a passenger sits on the back, the back of the bottom plastics sit on the ground....

what would be the best fix or replacement??

You'll have to get a heavier spring and you better do it before you damage the Shock or linkage.

you can buy a new spring or just tighten your spring up. My bike was 10 over and a stock spring worked fine even when i hot the shock revalved by adams performance they told me to use the stock spring that it was plenty stiff

whats your weight
