    Default Champion IRS Shock Adjustment Question

    I have a 2012 wing with the IRS kit and tried to adjust the shocks for a higher ride, and I could not get the lower ring on the shocks with the holes to turn. I did not want to put to much torque on them and damage something. My question is, are all of the shocks on these kits adjustable, or maybe I need to get a larger spanner wrench?

    Thanks for the advice

    Use a lot of WD40....And take the weight off the shocks by jacking up the body...

    This worked great. After a night of WD-40 soaking on shock adjusters, one good pull broke them loose, then they turned easy. I spent more time removing the tires and puting them back on than adjusting the shocks. There are no good words on the close fit on these tires. Unless the previous owner put oversize tires on it.

    Thanks again
