It can get fairly expensive to rebuild the rear suspension on bikes depending on what all is wrong with them. You can usually find aftermarket replacement parts for as cheap or cheaper than it would be to have it rebuilt.

Ive got a gl1100 1982 with air front suspension q-what is the best way to change the front fork to a convensional spring fork and what forks would be the best ?


Hello and thanks for the question,
Your 1982 GL1100 has air assist type of suspension. It has springs in the front as well as the air pressure. This is a heavy bike and the front forks are marginal at best. I have had great results from installing progressive suspension springs and moving up to a heavier fork oil (20wt ) to keep the bike from diving so far during braking.

You should look at having the forks rebuilt with these parts and you will find that the bike handles much better than before.
The springs that are in the bike are old now and should be updated with new style parts.

Thanks and I hope that this helps.

1995 aurora need to replace front struts and rear shocks is it best to stay with air or is something else better also where is rear suspension compressor


I really like this car,almost bought one new. Now as you know OLD S has been gone since yours was made. No Parts at GM. Never were good in that area. I had a Caddy and did what you want to do when parts were avail. I stayed with the Air Strut/Shock from GM and adjusted ride height sensor ,then off to alignment. Compressor may be under battery,you'll hear it when you turn key on if it works. Kind of old to spend money on. I buy new and keep 17 years and do my own work for 46 years plus owned a shop a couple years. 15 years old is time to ride it out to the end.not restore it. Get a 68 Reviera for that. Forget the air if it becomes had to find parts or send yours out and have them rebuilt if they aren't rusted through.

GIVE IT GAS, IT PULLS TO RIGHT ---STEP ON BRAKE , IT PULLS LEFT. FRONT END REBUILT AND PROBLEM PERSIST. IS THIS A PROBLEM WITH THE REAR SUSPENSION TOE LINKS?


Front end pull when braking sounds like a brake problem. The rear problem is the large bushings on the trailing arm suspension. The car should coast more straight when there is no torque and then pull when there is torque. The rear axle is cocking to one side under load.

Buick Park Avenue rear suspension pump noise


You may have to replace it but money wise it is a lot of times cheaper to convert over to standard shock/strut suspension than it is to buy the pump

1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Rear End problems


Hello, well you can look at it in a few different ways. Like you stated you can get a rear end from a salvage yard and not know what you are getting, you can spend some big bucks to get a new rear end, or you can get it rebuilt. I feel getting it rebuilt will be the better option. If you get it rebuilt you will have new parts in the rear end and know what you have verses the cost of a new rear end. This of course depends on how much damage there is in the rearend. Economically I feel that having it rebuilt is the best option. I always get nervouse when putting in any used part because you don't know what you are getting. If you do get it rebuilt make sure they put in new bearings which any reputible shop should anyways.

Recomende tire pressure touring motorcycle


Generally I put the front and rear tires @ 40 psi. You get better gas mileage , plus it rolls better when you have to push it around, but you also get better tire wear. I would set your rear air suspension around 12 -15 psi.
