Okay- I'm pretty sure im beating a dead horse by now, but I just cant understand what is going on with my rear suspension. It compresses but does not come back up unless I get off. Had the Zero Pro shocks rebuilt, with heavier oils. Put brand new Sno Pro springs in the rear with Grip N Rip block adjusters. Its not on a dolly and I don't weigh 500 pounds. Any ideas?

It's possible all the pivot points on the rear arms are gummed up with old grease or corrosion and don't move as freely as they should. It would have been a good idea to remove, thoroughly clean, and regrease them before skid went back in sled.

So to rule out all pivot points, loosen the 4 skids bolts a bit and see if there's any change. You installed the shock links in the same hole as before? What was the point of using heavier oil in shocks? I would think that would slow down rebound especially in colder weather.

Poor man's revalve. I was told with more aggressive trail riding it will take longer for shock fade. I'll have to try loosening things up a bit, then find out.
