2013 xf cross tour rear suspension

I changed out the air shock, went with a hygear coilover and their coupler, worked decent for 150 miles now the suspension is completely bottomed out, we use this as a 2 up sled, is there a skid that could be put in it with torsion springs? Been chasing this suspension since we bought it brandnew.

Call Rob at Star Suspensions (819-849-7858). He has a new rear arm (just came out a couple weeks ago, not even on his Web site yet) that is designed to accommodate torsion springs. He even offers a kit to make the rear arm geometry progressive. The guy knows his stuff and is a straight shooter.

Went through the same thing. The Hygear arm changes the rear to a progressive rate but also requires a MUCH higher spring rate to work correctly especially if using as a 2 up.
