I have a 01 XC 600 and was wondering if I should remove both rear shocks to get rebuild or just one of them. If the sled sags when I sit on it, is it best to just rebuild both or is this just one of the shocks malfunctioning?

Rebuild both. Sag is associated with torsion springs, not shocks. You should rebuild all shocks annually. Unless of course they aren't rebuildable. I know that seems obvious, but apparently some peps have trouble with the concept.

Rebuild them all. Why do a half A** job. That would like replacing 1 sparkplug verses both/all of them.

Sounds good, I will be bringing in both of the shocks tomorrow. Already have 3 out and is there any trick to getting the front shock out in the skid?

Easiest way is to remove the whole skid. As it is sometimes a pain to get the shock compressed when bolting it on.

The whole skid is sitting on my floor as if right now. I have removed the far back shock and removed a couple other components for the front shock and will finish it either today or tomorrow. I'll let you guys know if I have any problems, thanks.
