I have new carbides (10") and my sled bites into the snow but I am skating all over the place. How do you lower the front end on the piggy back shocks to get more handling. Also, can I max out the rear shock (stiffer) even though I weigh 300 lbs.? Where should I set the front shocks?

I don,t thing you should lower the fronts / as this wood put less pressure on them . I would go for max the rear and check the limiter stap What size carbides did you run before? 10s are for hard riding not for avg trail sailing

Sometimes that skating can be caused by impropper ski alignment, if they are not toed in you will "skate" back and forth on the trail depending on what ski is catching best. esp. with new aggressive carbides

to get more ski pressure shorten the limiter strap. set the springs to keep it from bottoming with your weight. basically it will be rider preference on th final settings.
