I found the 'wait for gravity' technique to be hard to use consistently. I am able to arrive at a desired rebound much quicker just by starting with too much rebound, and holding the shaft in and blowing away the oil that leaks out. Take a little oil out, put the bottom lid back on, check rebound, and repeat if there's still to much rebound. If I hold the shaft far in, oil comes out fast and I can get down to very low rebound. Hold it in just a little to get slow oil leak, and end up with lots of rebound.

Drove mine for the first time this weekend ...and all of the above is true, took some pretty healthy hits (on purpose --- testing you know ) ...and the car never got tweeked as I was throwing up on the tweek station after every run to check'r out.

Hey Chris, I am also very picky with my shocks. If you are getting air in your shocks, you may want to try to screw on the cap a certain way. After you've added the oil and moved the shaft up and down to allow bubbles to rise to the top, you let the shocks sit for around 15 minutes unless you have a shock pump. After the bladder is placed, take an allen wrench and press the center of the bladder in a circular motion allowing the oil to bleed from the sides. When placing the cap, hold down the plastic mount tight and then screw down the collar. This elimiates air bubbles. Now you probably have a shock with a lot of pressure. Unscrew the bottom cap and move the shock up and down. You'll bleed out a drop of oil and take a napkin to wipe off the oil. You can do this until the desired rebound is accomplished. Shocks are perfect every time.

Pull shock shaft to the bottom of the shock, fill shock body with desired shock oil, move shock shaft up and down to get any air that may have been trapped under the piston to come to the top, repeat this three or for times, wait for all of the air bubbles to rise to the top of the shock and disperse, place shock bladder in the shock body using the end of an x-acto handle to ensure that the bladder is not being pushed up from excess oil, scew shock cap on, try and push the shock shaft up now, you will probably not be able to. Now lower the bottom shock cap off of the shock body and push the shock shaft in. This allows you to blead off the excess shock oil and get the proper rebound needed for each shock. once you get the desired rebound put the lower cap back on and you should have a shock described as "Butter"

Hope this helps.

Jim

That's exactly how the name came about Jimmy...LOL!!! How is everything going?

Regarding the part in bold, is the shock cap indexed to the collar like on an Fk05? If so, how can you do this, as the cap and collar must turn in unison.

Thanks, can I use top caps from a T2 on my FK05 to make holding down the bladder easier while I tighten the cap?
