Re: How do you know when to replace your shocks?????
I think it's really a little bit less than 100 pounds between the two. It FEELS like a whole lot less though!
But, I could tell a suspension difference and if I had not sold the LT, and after riding another that did not bottom out at the same place, it would have been time to swap them out.
Just thinking out loud, if you could get a ride on a new or low mileage 2010 or a dealer demo, over a bumpy road, you could compare that to your bike and quickly know if the shocks needed replacing.
