hi all,

i just got a 05 grizzly and i was wondering if
any of you guys had a part number for the spanner wrench
to adjust the springs? the guys at the stealership can't seem to find it.

or does anyone have a way to adjust them without a tool?

and last, what do you guys run the setting at with a stock bike and a
48" plow?

thanks and i love the info on the site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I adjust mine with a pair of regular channel lock pliers. With my 60" plow on I run the shock settings to the highest settings in the front only. Channel locks work great for adjusting them and I do however jack the front end off the ground slightly to take off pressure from the springs so they will adjust easier. If you leave it sitting on the ground you still can adjust them but it's a lot harder to do then if it's jacked up slightly and off the ground. Also if you do use the channel lock pliers use a rag or towel to wrap around the adjustment ring so you dont scar it up should the pliers slip iff during the adjustment. Hope this helped..

I was just going to post this same question. Good suggestion blue. Mine are on the softest setting and my plow really sags it down.

I tried this blue and all I managed to do was scratch up the ring (through the rag) and get irritated LOL!! I guess I will just leave them where they are set (next to softest setting). I think the factory puts them all at this setting???

Marine did you jack it up off the ground? I found it very easy to adjust by doing this in this manner. All I did was slip my floor jack under the front skid plate and took the wheels off the ground then the rings adjusted really easy.

ah, no I didn't try that as I down excatly own a floor jack. I have been meaning to get one but just can't afford one right now. I will try it with the jack supplied in my truck :)

Thanks for the help!

Marine you also might want to check with a local Snap-On rep. They might have what your looking for. Also maybe even Sears. Craftsmen has everything!
