Shock Therapy Turbo S

Can anyone help me? I did Shock Therapy full spring kit on my Turbo S. I gained ride height back but it rides much stiffer now and not a smooth.

Re: Shock Therapy Turbo S

Hey Brad, good to see you got the beast out. HMT?

Have you done the Tire pressure thing? Lower.

Looks like your crossover ring can go up quite a bit.

I have a XPT and mine are near the top on my fronts. These big Fox Shocks have some pretty stout springs.

For soft ride I’d try moving them way up and you can start bringing them down in 1/2” increments if you want to stiffen it up for cornering etc.
plus you have the Dynamix option to use on the fly to stiffen it.

So go a little soft on the crossovers and use Dynamix for immediate option to stiffen it up if needed.

Give it a try.

Re: Shock Therapy Turbo S

Do the shock settings show as 0 on the dash when sitting still and go up as you change the settings on dash? Something not right. Shock Therapy springs on my 18 Dynamix made a world of difference all for softer better ride. Did you get the correct springs for the weight you carry? Are all your shocks plugged back in? Did you have the dash off and pull the plug on ride command loose. No way should you be experience harder rides.

The dash is working just as it should. Shows 0 when in comfort and adjusts somewhat when the terrain changes.

Re: Shock Therapy Turbo S

Looking at your picture the limit strap is to short. See the bump stop you pushed up, it has not been pushed back down by shock action. Did you put the limit strap on at the same time? Take the limit straps loose and try it. For sure the front shock are not working as they should if this was taking after you have run it. How about a picture of the rear.

I do not see a jack under it so I assume this is setting as you would ride it. The limit strap is a difficult problem if so. It is limiting the front shock to maybe an inch of travel and hit hard on the strap. Would think that would indeed cause a harsh ride.

The jack is under the center of the machine you can kinda see in the pic. This is when I first installed and machine hadn’t been let down off the jack. There’s a lot of space in the limit strap now. I can jack it up to the wheels are almost off the ground before the limit strap hits.

Re: Shock Therapy Turbo S

OK. Something else is not right. How about pictures now of front and back shocks. You are not telling us a lot other then pour ride after new springs. Anything else done at the same time? Again, how much air pressure now and before. If nothing else give Shock Therapy a call. They are the experts. Are you riding in the same area both times.

We rode in wet sand last winter, got use to the ride. Come spring/summer sand dried out and the ruts got a lot deeper. Daughter thought something wrong with her suspension. The sand being dry and loose allowed deeper digging and more sand displacement making bigger bumps. There is a night and day difference before and after on my 18 Dynamix with Shock Therapy Springs. You should experience the same thing.

I’m going to give them a call. Everyone says night and day difference and even my fiancée said it rides rougher. Same riding area both trips. The only thing I did was the springs and limit straps. Tire pressure is the same and everything. I used to notice a drastic change going from firm to comfort and not I notice just a slight difference.

Re: Shock Therapy Turbo S

Double and triple check the plug in on top of each shock to be SURE they are all seated correct.

Trust me they are. I forgot to plug one in when I reinstalled and I got an immediate error on my ride commend. I watch the shocks adjust as we go down the trail. The dynamix is working correctly.

Re: Shock Therapy Turbo S

OK, then my money is the wrong springs for what ever reason. Think they have ID numbers on them. Might get the numbers, be sure they are the same for both sides so you can compare with what they wanted to send you. Front and Rear different naturally. And are you sure the ride height is per Shock Therapy instructions?

Re: Shock Therapy Turbo S

I have the ST spring kit and revalve on my S and it is noticeably better. I have other guys in our group with S's and we have swapped machines during rides and it is definitely an improvement. Something isn't right.

We ride the same places. I didn’t do the valve just the spring kit. Where are your crossovers set? Wonder if mine are too low and riding on the lower spring too much? Is 16”ground clearance what you have up front?

Yep I went off of their website. It actually said 16.5” front and 16” rear. I’m about .5” lower but I was tired of messing with it. There isn’t really instructions on setting up the crossovers. Their measurement has my crossover about .5” from the spring dividers so i moved them up a few inches.

Re: Shock Therapy Turbo S

When I go faster it rides smoother. If that helps?
