The spring holds up the weight of the bike.If its stuck down.the main shocky rod is bent or the internals of the shocky are broken,causing it to lock.I don't think its parts but a new unit.Hope this helps

    Sorry the answer didn,t come through straight away.I tryed.Like I said.The spring holds the weight of the bike.Like the spring on a car.If you push down and it jams,you have to look why.A spring has about 120 kg of preload.To stop that coming back up,something is wrong.Bent or jammed.Bushes are not that strong.I would look at linkages.Unless the spring has broken its mount.Very unlikely.Sorry I couldn't help you more but its very hard without seeing it.

My seat will bottom out on my xr 80r


You will need to get some new rear shocks or monoshock depending on the age of your bike. But if it is bottoming out then yours are either too old or too weak for your body size. Maxton will rebuild it for you to suit your su=ize and use.

How to bypass the rear self leveling kit on a 95 buick riviera


sounds like the shocks are done. Air lifting shouldn't make it more bouncy - bad shocks do that. Also you should check out the bushings that hold the rear wheels on and in place. If the rear shifts side to side when it bounces is may not only be the shocks are done - rear wheels could be going out of 'alignment' from their normal resting place and 'steering' the rear end from side to side.

How do I lift the back seat up on my 2000 outback?


Hello,

This is the solution you desire:
1.If you look closely between the seats, there is a small loop strap made of material similar to the seat belts.
2.Pulling it releases the latch that holds the seat down. It is possible to close the seat down onto the strap, thus hiding it and leaving no apparent way to get the seat up.
You will need to grope around and find it. It may help to use a tool like some sort of hook. It is in the center of the rear edge of the seat, but it may have been folded off to either side.

Have a nice day and thank you for using fixya.

Where do I put the supports when working underneath 2006 Chevy Malibu? I need to change my rear shocks


Look under the car - you'll see 2 long metal rails ( the frame rails) . Support each side with a 2 ton minimum jack stand fully extended approximately one foot ( 12" ) in front of the rear wheels. Now use your jack ( preferably floor style ) to lift one of the rear wheels to relieve the pressure on the shock. Remove fasteners securing the shock, then remove and replace the shock. If the new shock has a plastic strap attached, do not cut this strap until you have mounted the shock on the vehicle. If you do not have an exposed frame rail, you'll see a "pad" in front of the rear wheel close to the outside of the car - it should be about 10 inches in from the pinch weld and about 12 inches in front of the wheel. Use this pad for the stand and lift the vehicle by the c shaped bar that goes from 1 rear wheel to the other. Do not support the car with just the jack -it could let loose and drop the car on you.
Hope this helps!

This is a dangerous job if you do not have the proper equipment for compressing the spring that is around the rear shock. I do not recomend performing this job without the proper equipment. Unloading the spring without it compressed can cuase injury.

If you have the proper equipment this is how you do it.

  1. Roll back carpeting on top of the rear shock tower to access shock mounting nuts.
  2. Remove plastic cover from the top of the shock assembly.
