On the rear shock on the shock its self, the bottom is threaded you will need a spanner wrench to adjust this, but it will make your bike taller, also there is a rebound, and compression screws on the shock you can turn them to the right to adjust this, the front forks have these adjustments also but you will not need the spanner wrench for this.

2013 lariat can I put put larger tires on my truck?


Yes, ..BUT.. There are a couple issues that must be considered..
Front end first.
1. Clearance = at the fenders when the suspension moves the tires to max travel upward... == 2. When the tires are turned full travel left and right ( full suspension travel also)..make sure the tires will clear the frame/suspension components (at full turn - left and right)
Next is the front end geometry (toe-in -caster/camber) is set after you install the new tires... larger tires will also decrease your milage (harder for the engine to turn).. REAR END - make sure the tires clear the fenders when the suspension moves through the full travel range.. if the tires stick outside the fenders, you MIGHT have an issue at full suspension compression.. not to mention throwing "stuff" all over your truck!

Front suspension screws for letting out pressure snapped of inside the suspension. how do i fix it and how much will it cost?


Put your bike on a stand so there's no weight on the front wheel. Take the whole cap off the top of your fork, on the underside of the broken screw as centrally as possible centre punch a mark, then using a very small drill gently drill through, increasing the drill size gradually, the drill action and the heat generated may loosen the screw if not a bit of persuasion with an impact screwdriver set clockwise should do the job.

My Jeep liberty Rear suspension has something loose. When on and off the throttle the suspension twists and dog tracks! It's also clunky. I had it up on a lift and went around with a pry bar looking for...


Problem is that most "ramp" type lifts have become obsolete. As you said, you can't find anything with the suspension hanging (bushings are loaded)
Try checking it on the ground or up on four drive on ramps (careful though).
And, shame on that dealer for not trying harder!!!

Does This Car Have Rear "Struts" Or Shocks?? What Is the Difference?


THe 93 Mazda has both actually. The shock absorber in this car is just one component of the so called strut assembly. Read on if you want the details: Shock absorbers are simple suspension dampers that control the unwanted spring motion of the vehicle's frame caused by the suspension's springs. Struts, or strut assemblies, basically does the same thing, although they are used on a different type of suspension system and performs another function, which is to provide support for the suspension system.

A strut assembly is composed basically of a shock absorber unit, a coil spring, an upper pivot, and a lower control arm. A lot of vehicles today make use of strut assemblies instead of simple shock absorbers for the suspension system. The most popular of these strut assemblies is the MacPherson Strut for the front suspension and its rear suspension counterpart, the Chapman Strut.

Mazda vehicles are well known for their sporty looks and performance, amazing a lot of auto critics when they accelerate on paved streets and highways. Mazda vehicles, however, also has the capability of running on an off-road track without affecting the comfort that Mazda passengers feel; thanks a lot to the high quality Mazda struts they are equipped with. Original Mazda struts are guaranteed to provide every Mazda passenger a pleasurable ride, whatever kind of trail they may choose to traverse.

How do i adjust my rear suspension , i want to make it softer and if i make it too soft how do i make it harder again


Looking the service manual on an 04 shows two seperate adjustment screws.  One for adjusting the rebound dampening and the other for adjusting the compression dampening of your rear shock.  The front has the same set up for each side of the fork.  (2 pistons in front and 1 in back).  If you look at the top of the rear shock on the right side of the bike, you should see an adjustment screw.  That is the compression dampening screw.  You should feel a definate click when you turn the screw to let you know how much you have changed it.  Looking toward the bottom of the shock, you should see a screw labeled RBN.  That is the rebound dampening adjustment.  I would adjust the compression dampening first and then the rebound.  Compression takes care of the initial part of the bump while the rebound slows the shock on the return to neutral.  If the rebound is set to high, you will feel like the bike is trying to toss you off the bike like a bull.  If the compression is too high, you will feel like somebody is kicking you in the arse.  
Hope this helped.  You should be able to find that 04 KX 250 service manual at: http://www.repairmanualclub.com/motomanuals/ I know you have an 06, but I'm sure it's very similar.
Good Luck

Hi!

Replace the suspensions, buy new ones. I know that the old ones can be repaired, but its expensive and you never know how long they live.

New suspensions arent expensive to buy

Good luck
