    How do I install the Race Tech shock spring?

    by JerkyChew » Sat Apr 13, 2019 11:45 am

    I bought the Race Tech shock spring from CRF's Only store, and it included the spring collars required for installation. However I have no idea where the collars go - I assume one goes on top and one on bottom, but how do I know which is which? There weren't any instructions included and I can't find anything online. Here's a pic of the new spring, original shock, and collars:

    It looks like you just undo the collar , remove it , add the one insert to the bottom , then add the other to the top and replace the collar and that should be it , it does not look like that shock requires a spring compressor , so it should be simple and straightforward

    The reason for the collar is because of the difference in diameter of the Race Tech spring
