RallyRaid Shock Spring


Recommended Posts

Just got the RallyRaid 90N/mm upgrade. The disassembly/assembly process was super simple, super easy to do. I will say both bolts on the shock were completely dry, so those got greased up. I used the cheap Tusk spring compressors. They did the job, but let me tell you, one of them bent while releasing the 90N/mm spring. Haven’t done much testing yet, did do a couple curb jumps and the rear barely squatted at all. Overall I think it’s gonna make a killing off-road, super excited.7DD85DCF-6E7D-4700-97B4-6F430E5409BE.jpeg.f6d176a130236fcbb302c5542c42b135.jpeg7A8193D1-EB96-494D-9271-FD4E6FE30C0A.jpeg.f013168feda34e96fc981d4dd44a51ce.jpeg03B742C1-AB9C-49BD-B348-BBAAC1AB129B.jpeg.eb97cc025a4635eb584585b12087f3eb.jpeg

I had the same experience with the Tusk spring compressors doing the same job on my T7. They collapsed like yours did while trying to compress the stock spring so I had to resort to a floor jack and 3 cargo straps. Big difference in ride quality,  well worth the effort.
