    The new spring I ordered for my trials bike should arrive on Thursday and I'd like to get I swapped out soon as it was a buy it and try it sort I deal. If I don't like it I'll send it back.

    Anyone have a compressor can borrow or use to do the swap?

    Thanks.

    Most new shocks have threaded bodies. You just back off the pre-load collars and it comes apart. Easy-peasy.

    Thanks guys I ended up making my own compression and took care of it.

    Zuber this shock isn't that lucky. Even with te preload zeroed out the spring is still loaded against the perches.
