04 Prairie 700 rear shock

Postby Keith Strong » Sat Feb 24, 2007 7:05 am

my buddy has an 04 prairie and had this gargantuous rack on the back of it when he lived in New Mexico. I finally convinced him to take it off, but the quad sags in the back now. Anybody know anything about these? Replace the shock with factory? I read somewhere it is air adjustable? or go aftermarket and spend bucks on a shock he will never know the difference on?

These might be a more affordable alternative.

Checkout ebay for factory replacements on the cheap.

The shock has an air fitting on the resevior. I just need to research what goes in it :lol: If its air I am gonna pump it up and see what happens.

There should be an adjuster on the spring...the spring try cranking that up...I'm guessing he's had so much weight on there that he has compressed the spring...Other option is to watch the classifieds for a wreck or for someone who has upgraded and snag a stock shock cheap. :wink:
