Then lessen the amount of air. You can run 2 lbs or 50 lbs. in that year. You just have to find the happy spot for you. Some guys like it softer than others.

2009 ELECTRA GLIDE SEEMS OFF BALANCE WHEN MAKING A SHARP TURN


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non standard equipment on the front end such asheavy radio receivers, extra lightning equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tire(s) or improper front-rear tire combination
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. Shock absorber not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing play.
9. Improper vehicle alignment.
10.Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires out of round or eccentric with hub.
13. Rims and tires out-of-true sideways.

How to replace back shocks on 97 Town Car


The shocks can be replaced individually or in a pair and without replacing anything in the air suspension system. Just remember to shut off the air suspension before raising the vehicle and then support the rear axle. I know I have done a few of these, also done the grand marquis, too. I'm not sure which was which, maybe even the same way, but you may need an air hammer with a very long chisel bit to remove the top nut. If you don't have this, well, good luck.

Oil leaking from left rear air shock..small amount (few drops)..still holds air pressure(15-20 psi)


The fact that the air filled upper portion of the shock is still holding air doesn't change the fact that the o-ring seals in the oil filled portion at the bottom of the shocks are going bad. You are better off replacing both of them soon before it affects ride comfort and handling.

Lowering FLHTCUI


I lowered my 06 Street Glide 1 1/4" in the rear, using a bolt on, adjustable lowering kit that I purchased on Ebay. $100.00, including shipping. Took less than 30 minutes to install, and can be returned to stock, in about the same amount of time. It lowers Touring bikes either 1 1/4", or 2 1/2". If you ride 2-up, you'll have to keep some more air pressure in the rear shocks, to prevent bottoming. The SG shocks are 12" stock. The FLHTC/U has 13" shocks stock. The brand of lowering kit is R.U.B. Excellent quality, quick delivery. Hope this helps.

My '94 FLHTC no longer holds air in the front shocks.


Air shocks are done when they no longer hold air, they'll need replaced. They can be rebuilt, (not sure why), but almost all places won't because it's cheaper to buy new ones, and not worth their time. You can also get a rebuild kit, but again, with the kit, specialty tools required, and the extreme pain in the arse that is involved, new ones are cheaper. So, with this said, buy new shocks, it's going to be cheaper and safer than rebuilding these.
