    Mick;

    The Lehman shock was a Progressive. It was set on the highest setting. Leaking. The 2nd owner (6 Months) purchased another and gave it to me.

    I installed the new one and it was set on the middle setting. I put 100 miles on it with just me before I got the tool to set it at the highest setting. I haven't ridden it yet, waiting on Brake shoes and then 17 degree weather kinda slowes the riden progress down.

    Lee H Mann (RIP) Said the original Bike shock for that year 05-07 was the stock spring. He said to replace the spring which I have purchased.

    I spoke with Fred Harmon, and he suggested the pump test. It starts to labor at 12.

    So I have 2 problems.

    I can get the Bike shock off with just taking the seat and side covers off. But then can't remove the pump with it as a whole unit. I've never done well with the 20 something kid at the dealer telling me I can't do that.

    I would imagine you guys know all this already, it just helps me to write it down in the explanation.

    I had my spring replaced in 08 with the progressive on the Lehman shock,in 2014 I had to replace the lehman shock as it was leaking oil. Too many years of 2 up riding with a trailer I guess. Sadly with Lehman out of business back then if you had an issue with rubbing they gave you a Progressive spring to replace the stock spring on the shock. The dealer would replace it free of charge. With the Monarch IIs they were finding out this was an issue with 2 up riding and supposedly after 08 the Progressive was stock on the kits. On the pump I removed the right wheel and with the trike up on jackstands I was able to get the pump off of the frame and refilled. That was around 8-9 or even more years ago and it still starts at 1.

    Well come to find out while jacking it up my Swing Arm Isolator Bushings are shot. The axle drops about 2 inchs once i get the wheels to clear the ground. This is another project I've never done. I've looked everywhere and haven't been able to find a how to anything to replace these. Any of you folks ever done this?

    M&J might have the parts you need ,sadly Jims gone but supposedly someone is trying to sell the parts he had. If no luck try Niehaus cycles in Litchfield Il.
