Re: New LT that is going to need a clutch soon
the shock absorber is what holds the spring, it is a gas strut, the stock springs are soft new for a soft ride, it is unlikely the shock is worn out since it is mostly compressed under load.
when you remove the spring manually compress it there should be resistance, firm to compress and when released should smoothly slow completely extend.
the forks are there to hold the wheel, they are filled with automatic transmission oil
Avons are getting more popular, I have one on rear and front will be same once it wears out
