I am the proud owner of a 1995 Indy lite gt but I have discovered a problem with my sled. I went to get on my sled and it bottomed out and won't spring back up unless I lift the sled up. I have replaced all shocks, the rear tortion springs, and I have greased all nipples on the skid assembly do any of you have any suggestions of what my issue may be?
A rear end that goes flat on these machines is often the result of a faulty rear shock. Though you say you've replaced everything, I suspect your rear shock may not be a correct part which could make it 'faulty' in this application. Everything else looks correct in terms of assembly (although we often ran the rear tension bolts pretty much all the way in.)

You might want to actually pull the suspension and remove all the cross shafts so you can clean them up and lube them by hand before re-installing them. Also you can clean up all the old dried grease from the tube the shafts are in. I have noticed that the grease nipple pushes grease in the direction which has the least resistance but sometimes none goes the other way because of old dried up grease. Also it lets you check the shafts for straightness which may be the cause of your problem.
The older I get the better I was; In fact now that I think about it I am a legend.
