Snapped Shocks

6 posts in this topic

Hi

 

Has anyone ever experienced a snapped narrow body Ultima shock absorber? This has been fitted to my custom for less than 2000 miles.

 

Are parts available?

Looks like a softtail shock to me, I upgraded my softy to Progressives years ago, call them with dimensions, maybe they can hook you up.  I've never seen one break before, Ultima parts seem to have a bad rep tho...

Yes, it's a softail shock. This is the second set of ultima shocks I have had. Both sets failed.

 

The big question is: - do I buy another set of narrow body shocks, and wait for one of them to fail. That way I'll be able to make up a set using both of the leftover shocks, or do I buy a set of standard HD shocks

Are you sure that the spacers and washers are letting the heim joint move freely?
