Has anyone replaced the shocks on their Champion solid axle kit? Is a softer ride possible?
Each shock has an adjustable ring for spring tension. The ring has 5 steps in it and there is a cog on the shock body that fits into one of these steps. You need a Spanner to adjust this ring. You have to get under the trike and reach up to each shock and use the spanner to twist the ring to set the step you want on the cog. Some people say this whole operation can be done by taking off the tires and reaching in from the side to adjust the ring. I don't know since I have never tried it that way. The spanner is the only tool needed. I fit a 6 inch piece of pipe over the spanner handle to give me more leverage to twist the ring. Hope this helps.Bill, Can you explain what is required to adjust the shocks?
