Ok looking to replace my shock.. have found good deal on shock ... also found the hardware specific to the shock, but I'm not sure how it's measured.
I know I need 2 sets probably.. So what / how do I measure the kits are like 8 x 24mm or 8 x 47.5 or 6 x 42mm etc etc ... so what are these measurements I assume the 8 or 6 is the diameter of the mounting rod and the others are the width of the pin or sleeve???
so I'm assuming I have to remove the shock and measure something the 2nd number is what I have a problem grasping as my shock is in the middle or a 3 inch bar and looks to have a spacer on each side. and the kits only come with one sleve not one for each side.. and the bottom is tight I'm not sure if there is anything required there besides the pin that goes in the shock..
I need to page scublover he is always helpful on suspensions as well as Smashy and Mr. Minor. Also my bike is a 2006 trek fuel ex7 if by some miracle someone knows what size the hardware is.
Thanks for reading my thread and any help is appreciated.
