1998 Polaris Trailblazer rear shock mod/upgrade help


Recommended Posts

I would like to modify the rear shock on my 1998 polaris trailblazer to raise the rear end to help make it somewhat level with the front.  The rear end really sags, which I am guessing is due to the shock spring.  The spring isn't broke though.  I have seen others insert spacers on their springs to do what I am looking for, but I haven't found information on my specific wheeler.  Does anyone know if this is possible, or have information on this?  Or can you help me find information on a stiffer spring, or possible an entire shock that might be an upgrade, but not break the bank?

Yeah that looks adjustable but it looks like you don't have anywhere to go to get it tighter. This is probably why people have tried to shim it. I would look online for a performance spring/shock assembly or even a new stock spring. The spring is probably weak if its sagging.

I am worried about getting a "used" spring, and it being weak like mine seems to be.  

And I am having troubles finding a new one, which is why I was looking for other options.

I also heard that the scrambler shocks will fit on trailblazers, does anyone know about this?

      having an issue with the unit when running under a load up a hill or in high gear, seems like the belt is slipping, there is a clapping sound coming from the primary clutch like it releases and snaps back in. i don't think I should have a noise like that. this is a friends unit and he has already replaced the primary twice with the same result.
      not sure where to look next

      The stock driver seat cushion is separated at a seam. I took the seat apart and found that the material has torn and cannot be re-stiched. I'm trying to find a replacement seat. Any suggestions? Hoping for a used seat but couldn't find one on Ebay.

      Got a Big Boss produced 2016 YM 2017 that gives DTC 520 285 2 (random)
      What I understand is correlation code for brakesensors, very little information in workshop manual.
      Removed front plastic to discover that no connector was mounted on the brake pressure switch!?
      The only "brake" information seems to come from the micro switch at the brake lever.
      Does anyone know if Polaris does anything special on the 6x6 or had this issue?
