i wa sjust wondering hwo would i stiffen the front shocks t for plowing snow since i have a 60" plow when ever i raise the plow it makes the front suspension squat down and i kinda want ed the plow to go higher and if i could stiffen the front suspension stiffer just for plowing snow i would be very thankful.




thanks

The shocks are adjustable. They make a special tool to turn them, but some people have been able to with a large pair of lock pliers.

I did mine a long time ago, so someone correct me if I am wrong, but you need to extend the shock to it's longest position to make it stiffer I believe.

When you make the shock stiffer, it's actually shorter. What you're doing is compressing the spring, or pre-loading it.

I have Works Performance Shocks on my Grizzly and they have the ARS lever on 'em that let's me adjust the shock's actual amount of travel. They work great for plowing. My front end still squats but not nearly as bad as if I had the crappy old stockers on it.

Whoops... sorry, thanks for the correction. I was thinking by making it longer it would raise the front end.

Brad,
don't forget to "jack" up the front end off the ground before you adjust the shocks. If there is "no weight" on the shocks they turn/adjust very easily!
