This link is not working for me. I get an error and nothing loads.Starts here, three posts:
I was under the impression he wanted to change out the pogo chrome tube that's worn this is why i said it can be only done from the top.Here try these instructions:
You really have two options, you can do the job from the top, or from the bottom. It's less work to do it from the bottom.
In brief (what I can recall to the best of my knowledge):
1. Lift front of sled and support the bellypan area so that the skis are 8-10" off the ground. I use a chain hoist and a milk crate for this;
2. Remove windshield, hood, upper and lower sidepanels;
3. Remove ski bolts, skis and axle that goes through lower strut and lower shock eye;
4. Remove upper shock nut. Use 1/4" wrench to hold sq shaft atop shock or the whole assy will turn;
5. Shocks and springs will drop out;
6. Transfer lower shock eye bushings to new shocks;
7. Install new shock/spring assy, give yourself some preload. I think mine have about 1" of thread below the adjuster;
I sometimes remove the "cheek plates", which are the black nose pieces to each side of the hood. They are held in place with many torx bolts and two M6 bolts on each side where the accessory bumper mounts on. If you don't have the accessory bumper, these cheek plates are easy to remove. If you have the accessory bumper, those two bolts are tough to get at. When the accessory bumper is present, I try to get the upper shock nut off without removing these cheek plates.
Of course, to each his own, but this has worked for me.
What odds if you do. You'll know what you have when you're doneThanks for the info that you both provided. I do want to replace the chrome looking pogo leg, but I will also be putting in new shocks at the same time.
Hopefully it is fairly simple. At the very least it seems all the things I need to get to are accessible.
I have a feeling that there will be one part I forget to order and I will spend my time waiting for that to finish the job.
