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?  

Thanks,

Some of those shocks are adjustable. Can you post a picture of your setup?

This is the best picture that I have.  And the spring is compressed as much as possible.

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?

      Have a 2001 polaris sportsman 500 4x4 atv and when I put coolant in the radiator it starts leaking from the exhaust. The valves are sealed but it stopped making compression. Do I need to just replace the head? I just rebuilt the hole top end and this is the only thing +valves that I have not replaced and was wondering if that is why it's not starting up. Need answers please.

      IMG_4272.MOV Originally had my griz600 stop running and then wouldn’t start ! After testing all coils , valve lash , compression (115psi) and all tested ok I bought a used cdi . After cdi install it still wouldn’t start (no spark) ! So even though the stator , pulse/trigger and charge coils check within good range I decided to switch the stator etc ! It started but It is very unresponsive on throttle and acts like it is running in 2 Different spark timing ! With slight throttle it will take off good but instantly go into a very different running mode with no power like timing very retarded but it will switch back to running good for short period then bad again !  Since I replaced the stator and it started I then decided to install the cdi I replaced and it did the same thing ! Also I noticed the Used cdi I Took off had a capacitor that had swelled and extruded from the back of the cdi . I had always heard and I believed that when these CDIs go bad they machine will quit and will not run . Is that true ? I also checked the cam/valve timing and its ok ! Checked with timing light and it does fluctuate on idle ! I am thinking I have 2 bad CDIs . I also switched the trigger Coil wires and would not start then . Man , this thing ran good before and I am confused ! Video below may help !
