• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

So I have used Andy Youngstrom from Gas Shock Repair over in Rigby, Id for several years now for revalving stock shocks on several sled. Well, I just picked up a 2017 Axys that the guy had put 36" zbroz a-arms on but had not shortened the front shocks the 1/2" recommended by them when doing so. I went ahead and sent them off, with the rears, over to Andy to have them shortened and all four shocks revalved and the entire bill was $122. I was absolutely shocked! Not only this, but he turned them within one day. Every time I use him I am blown away by his great service and pricing. I have seen so many posts on here from guys paying $300-400 to have there shocks revalved and serviced. I'm telling you, if you need shocks reworked or just serviced, Andy is the guy to use. His website is www.gasshockrepair.com and his cell phone number is 208-716-0475. Had to give him a shout out because he's just a great guy to deal with. Thank you Andy!

Andy is the best! I’ve been friends with him since Junior High. He is a very skilled guy with anything mechanical. He’s honest. He’s reliable. An all around great guy.

It seems it is a lot easier to hear bad news than good in this world. Props to you for posting this positive review and making the effort to spread a good word for a deserving company. Hats off sir.

I second all this. Andy has taking care of every shock need I've ever had. Bikes or sleds. He just revalved my 850 shocks and yesterday was first trip on em. All I gotta say is wow!! The difference is incredible.

After coming across this thread, I ended up sending him two sets of shocks to revalve. He received them last Friday and had them in the mail on their way back to me Monday. Very impressed with the quick turnaround and he was great to deal with. Now I just need to head west to get some time on them. I will definitely give him work in the future and recommend him as well.

I've also used him in the past to shorten and revalve a set of floats. Even with the shipping from Canuckistan and exchange rate it was still tons cheaper than getting it done local. Anyone have experience with his valving on the Walker Evan's? Rode a buddy's non-clicker WEs that were done by Carl's and I was really impressed with them. Want to get my clickers done now

Andy re Valved my shocks that Carl’s did. I was heavier than the original sled owner That had Carl’s valving. No complaints at all.
