I called them today and left a message. Should hear something tomorrow, hopefully. If it works, you could do the front for under $200

Heard anything?
No & Maybe.

He told me the ones that he carries are for a 2" body shock. Our is 46mm OR about 1.81".

The good news is that he gave me 2 #'s to call. He said that one of those distributors should have the correct size and possibly a bolt in application.

Ill do some calling tomorrow and keep yall posted.

i think it would be a nice alternative to do if they fit. i already machined 3groves in the factory shock to give my some options on how low i want to go. i am using 1 5/8 grove with the factory spring and rides like stock. all i need now is to get some qa1's for the real to make it ride better, but i will raise it back up in the winter so by using something like tis it will make it much easier to do and if i was going to a show or something i would be able to drop it more!!

That should work on our shocks. Our collars have about that much clearance and you could always fill the gap with silicone. I'm out of town until July 9Th. Have a safe 4th and God Bless! Scott

I think the only way these would work would be to kind of use them like the collars & sit them all the way down the shock on to the top of the lower fork, then get rid of the stock spring seat that the spring normaly sits on & just use these coilover sleeve & sit the springs rite on the new coilover.

Also you would need the 5" sleeve not the 7" its to long & then you need to figure out if the bottom ring on the stock spring is wide enough to fit over the coilover sleeve collar but yet still be abile to sit on the new coilover seat.

Last thing to fill in the space between the new coilover collar & the shock, i've seen rubber round rings used like in the picture below & even 3 small screws with flat points to hold the coilover to the shock.
