Shock therapy spring kit

I just competed the install. Took it for a ride. The live valve is stuck at the 10 setting in all modes. It will change from comfort to sport ect but the settings that are suppose to change with the mode donít change. Stuck on 10 the firm setting. Did anyone have this problem after installing spring kit?

Re: Shock therapy spring kit

Did you have any issues getting the sensors unplugged on the top of the shocks? I do not want to break anything. I have the Spring Threapy kit also. Thanks for any advice to make the installation go smooth.

No your good. Just press the piece in middle down and pull them out. You wonít hurt anything. Their is a zip tie you will have to cut to break it away from the shock. Once you pull the sensor plug out you will see it.

Re: Shock therapy spring kit

so to switch over sprigs, Just unbolt the shock like you would, disconnect whatever it is from the top where you see something connected to the shock and pull out and change the springs over?

Than repeat about 5 time or so till you get the ride heigth adjusted to 14" in front and 13.5" in rear.... trust me, it makes a huge difference

2014 Titanium - sold
2018 Dynamix - just starting

Re: Shock therapy spring kit

Front is easy to adjust on. Take weight off, unlock nuts, grab spring and twist. Rear, more work, remove the big air duct's, use a spanner wrench and adjust.

Re: Shock therapy spring kit

How did everyone like the Shock Therapy Spring Kit? does it significantly smooth out the ride? I'd like to do something to take out the chop/roughness on trails. Was debating their springs, but wasn't sure how much they would help, or if valving would be better.

Where are you measuring the ride height from? just to the lowest spot on the frame in the front and rear? Or to the center of the control arm bolts?

The spring kit helps a lot on 2018 Dynamix and it had a good ride to start with. Will do valving next.

Measure from the bottom of frame.

Re: Shock therapy spring kit

I installed the Shock Therapy Dual Rate Spring Kit on our 2018 RZR Turbo Dynamix. It was an easy install and the ride is much better.

I would have liked to test it a bit more, but our RZR transmission appears to have grenaded itself after 20 hours of easy driving...no jumping, no abuse, nothing just sounded like a blender going off as we backed it off the trailer...oh, and the front diff has been leaing fluid from day one. 2-months old, 200 miles, 20 hours and all we do is drive easy on the trails.

Did you change out the oil in the diff? I always run a bit and change all fluids over to Amsoil. Suspect you had a defective build that should be taken care of if you have a good dealer. Sorry it failed on you, but better backing off trailer then 50 miles out. I really, really like my Dynamix and the shock therapy springs. Next month hope to send them in for valve work.

I did not change any oils, but did add some front diff fluid...maybe an ounce or two. The RZR is under warranty and is in the shop now.

My wife said the same thing as you about being thankful it happened coming off the trailer rather than way out in BFE! I'm thankful of that as well.
