Had my shocks rebuilt have the skid out putting the front rear shock in the skid noticing a ton of slop side to side on the lower Mount (that goes from skid rail to skid rail). The one that takes the long bolt. I put a new Ski-Doo rubber bushing in the eyelit of the lower shock mount but still have a lot of side to side movement is that normal.

Opinions are like butt holes......Everyone has one.

do you have the washers on each side of the shock along with the plastic spacer sleeve?

Never mind i was looking at something different

 

The sleeves should sandwich the shock in there. My 2014 120" shock is snug from side to side.

There is movement on the lower shock mount but not much. It should be shock eyelet, plastic spacers, and the a washer in-between the rails, then a washer outside rails with bolt head and nut.

 

If you don't have those washers between the inside rail and spacers that could create the space to make eyelet really loose. Otherwise there is some side to side movement of the eyelet on the shaft. Shouldn't be much though.

 

If you have the skid out or suspended remember that when it is in the sled with weight on it is will center up and be fine.

 

Hope this helps.

When the skid is out now is the time to drill and tap for grease fittings or install mainway bolts with fittings.

yeah thats exactly what I have as far as parts and in that order.   Still have a what i consider alot of movement.  Put it all together and mounted the top mount. Im thinking it doesnt much matter once its all together.   Ive put 3 seasons on it like this with no issues...just dont remember seeing that much movement last time i serviced the shocks.  This is exactly what i have pictured here.   No washers on the inside of the shock mount...just the plastic guides that have a flared end that butts up against the shock eyelet.   Thanks for the input everyone.
