Parts ordered and shocks shipped

After a few days of searching for parts I finally placed all the ordereds for parts.  The list wasn’t all that bad except once the controll arms where removed we noticed that the shock stem was bent, and a new shock from BRP is $400!!  I contacted Frank at www.shocktec.ca and he is going to repair it for less the half the price of a new on.  I was able to get the upper & lower control arms from Forest Power Sports here in Prince George and Glen at www.spindriftpowersports.com had new trailing arms since I couldn’t find who made the ones that are on it now.  As for the carbid I was in luck, because the week before I purchased a set of Pilot 6.9′s which I cant wait to try out.  If you ever need shocks rebuilt, fixed or even looking for new ones I highly recommend contacting Frank at www.shocktec.ca he knows his stuff. And a big thank you to Glen at www.spindriftpowersports.com for going out of his way and giving me such a great deal on them. … Continue reading
