Last year at the end of the season I got a XTRA 10 as a bonus when I bought a motor. I only had a few rides with it installed and seemed to go good but still had some bottoming issues. The rear spring was set to the stiffest. It has Fox and it seems to function well. Today I was doing some pre-season cleaning and notice that the front shock rear skid spring was set low. So if I crank that sucker up on the shock body some with that do anything for me?

That will make it stiffer forsure and could help you from bottoming out. Also, are the torsion springs set on high. That will also help the suspension from bottoming out.

Yea the torsion spring are set as high as they can. It just seems that I was bottoming on even the smaller bumps...I guess I will have to crank the front shock spring up that or get some " Big Boy" Springs anyone know the part # and price for them?

if its bottoming that bad, i would figure on a rebuild. no big deal. not that pricey. but that suspension should give a pretty nice ride. whats it in?

Check around for sport shops that rebuild shocks. I found a shop here in buffalo,MN that only charged me $30 each for my wifes sled and thats front and rear suspensions (as long as you remove them first).
