Suspension lowering is typically sought after by riders wanting to be able to touch the ground for stability or new riders looking for confidence. Certain types of riding also require lowering of the suspension. When done properly, lowering is completely reversible.
- Cleaning of shock assembly
- Disassembly of shock
- Install of lowering spacers
- Vacuum bleed and fill with fresh oil
- Nitrogen refill
- Set compression clickers
- Set rebound clicker
- Set preload, must verify with sag measurements
- No additional labor fee for adding a service to a lowering.
- To achieve proper sag measurements and ride height after lowering, a shock spring with an increased rate is needed. Some exceptions like people who are light may get away with not need a new rate.
- Lowering your suspension can change the way your bike feels and handles. We recommend lowering only 1" max to retain good ground clearance and handling characteristics. (Lowered seats and ride time can often make up the difference if wanting to go lower.) Lowering beyond 1" can make the suspension uncomfortable and almost impossible to set up without revalving.
