Re: Front suspension collapsed conundrum
Tom, it sounds to me like some sort of shock issue. Yeah, that is stating the obvious, I know. Who did the rebuild? I would be very careful removing it. Shochks should dampen on the rebound but if something is broken and jammed, then it could fly apart if it released suddenly.
Does the rest of the front end look intact like the ball joint is still in place and not broken? I have heard that the front collapses if that breaks but I would expect it to expand again as the front was lifted and probably be pretty wobbly with no fixed connection point.
