You have two options.

#1 is to buy new springs. Not the stockers though. As you have found out, they are not big enough. Get a set from a 2006 IQ 440. 77.00 a piece. The old ones are .347" and the IQ's are .375".

#2 Is to relocate the front suspension mounting holes downward 7/8". This will eliminate all the sag, increase traction, make it take bumps better than stock and best of all, it's free. The downside is that you will more ski lift under throttle.

I have relocated the holes on mine and really like the sled's new found abilities, but am going to try the IQ springs too.

It's been so long since I signed up, but you may need to verify the account with your e-mail or an administrator may to complete it. Is your name the same there? I can check it out for you...

BTW, the skid really doesn't look much different with the holes relocated. It does act way different though. I strongly suggest you read that thread to decide if it's for you or not. Like I said, the other option is to buy IQ 440 springs.

I have the same problem. shocks were all recharged. I changed the springs to .375, when I get off the sled the suspension just stays inbetween the two blocks, everyone else I know their sled springs right up to the block when they get off the sled

First off, shocks have nothing to do with supporting the sled. The only control the motion.

What sled did you get the .375's off of? If off an Edge, then they still won't be heavy enough. You need .375's off an IQ 440.

Harrison, you wont want to do the springs, then the mod. It's gotta be one or the other. Both would be completely and retardedly stiff! Simply drilling the holes and backing out the front track shock spring really doesn't take too much time as you don't really have to remove the skid. Admittedly the IQ springs may be the better option (150.00+ US), but you can't beat the price of the "mod".


One last note for both of you: Make sure to completely grease ALL moving parts of the suspension. There are more points that need greasing than there are grease zerks. This alone will help some.

Goes stiff? Stock? Sounds like the suspension is not moving freely and the shocks are dead. If the shocks have never been rebuilt they are definitely due. Go to jbshocks.com and arrange to have them rebuilt. As for the suspension, read through the link in the second post answeres to your questions are there.

I did the skid relocation mod and its a night and day difference. suspension springs right up when i get off the sled. suspension doesn't feel sloppy anymore, weight transfer has improved lots, I can lift the skis a foot off the ground at 50 mph now. its a totally new beast and i love it
