i have an urking feeling that my rear shock could be blown...it rides great on the trail, but as soon as i hit a hard incline from flat ground going 20-30, i bottom right out...my torsion spring is on the stiffest setting...anything else i can do???is it really obvious when you blow a shock...(there's no oil leekage around the shock) my sled still looks and sits normal height, it just that when i rode a different sled w/ new shocks over the same "flat ground to incline", you could barely tell i hit anything at all
PS>>>im still in school and dont want to drop hundreds to redo my entire suspension w/ piggybacks...i just want it to work
thanks for the input

Sounds like you just need to set it up stiffer. Standing on the back of the foot wells, Jump down on the sled, it should compress 4 to 5 inches then come back up slow. If it comes back up like a pogo stick, you have a blown shock.
