1986 Suzuki LT230 Quad Sport Rear Shocks

Recommended Posts

Please post the year, make and model in the thread title, and also please do not post the same thing in different forums. I will be deleting the other one as this is the right spot for your post.

The best thing you can do is measure the lenght of the shock from eye to eye, and measure the width and diameter of the eyes and compare to other shocks on other machines. The likelyhood of finding one that fits without modification may be slim and even if it fits, it may not be sprung or valved properly for your machine. Not to say that it isn't possible, its just that swapping shocks can be more difficult than one might think. You can really make just about anything work as long as you have the abilities to make it fit, and the enginuity to engineer things to make it work like it would on the donor machine. You have to make sure the leverage on the shock is the same as it would be on the machine that it came off of. I know this one from experience, I have an old CR 500 powered TRX 250R with KFX 450 shocks on it. I had to completely re fab the upper and lower shock mounts and the lower mounts had to be moved to create the same leverage that the KFX would.
