I've been riding this sled pretty hard to see what it has since i just got it this fall. The suspension performs okay but I've notice that the clutch side front is alot stiffer than the mag. side. Is this just a suspension adjustment that's needed or what?

On an 88, I'd suspect one shock still has fluid in it, the other could be dry?

Not sure about easy, but the only way I know of to be sure, and that's remove them from the sled and pull the springs. At that point, it shoould be pretty obvious? Pulling shocks no big deal as long as you don't run into rusted bolts...

Haha yeah and on an 87 you can almost guarantee rusty bolts unless they were recently removed.

I'll look this weekend for the "pucks". I'm pretty sure that that the sides were close this fall. It seems to have happened over the winter. It isn't too bad except landing jumps means it will throw you slightly to one side. If it involves pulling springs, I'd rather wait until warmer weather. I'll get back to you guys on Monday.

Alright, there are no"pucks" for the suspension. In fact, there isn't much for adjustment. I'm thinking it is an empty shock. Is it alright to ride it like that or will it cause damage? It seems to run pretty normal. I did notice some noise like loose parts moving form the soft side. Any ideas?
