I am in the process of upgrading my two GL1800 to Traxxion rear shocks.Traxxin (Dan Anderson) is unable to sell a spring compressor because Progressive is not manufacturing these anymore.
Could anyone have one of these and is willing to sell it ,rent it,lend it?
Thanky you so much.. MY cell phone is 787 378 1805

It looks like Progressive is no longer selling the GL1800 shock either. Looks like all the problems they had have caught up with them.

Larry they discontinued the rear shok about 8-12 months ago.I was told it was due to lack of sales.
They were then rebuilding the ones that were out there.But that too has come to and end as the parts bin emptied.
A friend just got the last 3 rebuild kits they had.

I guess no more shock,why build/sell the removal tool for it's competitors??

I just used a Branick wall mount automotive strut spring compressor, worked great to swap out to my new shock...
