Looks like it would get dirt in it easily, and then either stop working and or destroy itself. There is no sealing on it. Great concept though.

Re: Factory connection pre-load ring

I have heard very positive feedback from a few people I know running them. I would run one if it wasn't so spendy.

Re: Factory connection pre-load ring

Been around for coil over cars along time. Just need a measurement for the bearing. It does look like they have it recessed in the collar. Little bit of dirt protection.
Went to Pivot Works sight but couldn't find a good picture

Or something like this

I started looking thru bearing supply houses to find something that might work for the shock and forks springs.

Talon do an adjustable collar, the pre-loader, though theirs works on having a stepped collar.

saw knighter adjusting his shock at a check last time he was up took him about 10 seconds to adjust the sag to what he wanted using this, took him longer to get a screw driver out of his bag.

Re: Factory connection pre-load ring

Since I've been taking my shock off after every ride, I decided to go ahead and add a thrust bearing under the spring. I have just changed over to .47 in the front and PDS-2. Been adding pre-load in the rear after every ride. Because of this I doubt I will feel a difference from the bearing. It does make adjustments much easier.


Factory dust seal was added(stock inner tube ).

Re: Factory connection pre-load ring

For you guys that have connections with manufactures
Make a spring rubber insert like NASCAR and other race cars use
would be simple to do
easy to install and remove
If you have a ten coil spring and block out one coil you will increase spring about 10%
