Default front suspsension

Every time I get off my sled it seems like the right side dips. I was thinking of new shocks/springs and saw this on Ebay. Would they work?

While I'm at it, where exactly is the sway bar? I'm thinking mine was removed. I have one bar that goes through belly pan and connects to steering unit. Then 2 more off each trailing arm that connect to bellypan. I assume these are the radius rods. Thanks.

Sounds like its gone. It would be behind the radius rods and run right thru the bulkhead. You would see it plainly if it was there. As for the shocks just make sure they are the same center to center distance as the ones that are on there and they will work fine. If the sled leans to one side maybe throw a new set of springs on there, there not a lot of money.

Best way to tune a race engine is to lean on it till ya put the rods out about 50 feet before the finish line then back it down 1 tooth on the pulley so it lets go 50 feet after the finish 2XM3

Yeah, those shocks are 16" centers.

You MIGHT stuff a 15.5" shock in there....MAX.
You probably need 14.5 to 15" shocks.

Depends on what sled this is on. Xc's and XCR's run 16 inch shocks up front. My XCR front end is 42 wide and thats what it runs. The narrower RMK would run the shocks listed above.

So i want to take my front shocks off and adjust the springs, clean, etc. What is the best way to go about doing this? How do you support the sled when you take the shock out without crushing something? I'm sure it's an easy solution, thanks for the advice.
