New to Forum Broke the Shock at Buthcher Jones

Recommended Posts

OK new to the forum great info

I just bought a used trooper. it had been wrecked. I replaced rollcage, both rear swing arms, rear axle, water pump,etc. Runs strong and i am still feeling good about it, but on the first trip out this happened.

I read thru some of the shock posts and will be replacing. are the stock shocks that cheap or was this just one of those things? post-472-1260452545_thumb.jpgpost-472-1260452545_thumb.jpg

Wow. I have a full spare set of shocks used from my buggy if your interested in stock replacements. They're in Bullhead, Az.

You must have jumped that off a cliff. Glad to see you're still alive.

:D

Az Bound I would be interested I really only need the one if I am going to stay stock (but then again maybe a few spares aren't a bad idea :D ). How much do you want for it?

The crazy thing is i didn't even realize it happened till i stopped. I noticed the shock was leaking after being out for a little while so i started heading back to the truck went down a pretty rough hill but nothing to crazy and drove another few 100 yards to the truck got out was walking aroung then noticed it. it was wierd :huh: .

I don't know where Gilbert is from Bullhead but you can have them, no charge, if you pick them up. Iam not always there but a friend of mine is for the next few weeks and I can make arrangements with him. Let me know.

They had about 500 miles on them before replacement with kings.

Damn really all 4 that is cool thanks :o . Gilbert is about an hour south of phoenix and is about 250 miles one way I am not sure when i can find time to get up there there, any chance your buddy would drop them at a UPS store and i'll pay the shipping and something for the trouble. I check with the UPS store in Bullhead they said i can pay for shipping over the phone if he'll drop them there. (here you are hooking me up and i am asking for more <_< not very cool so i understand if that doesn't work but like i said i can do something for the trouble.)

I think what happened, the is the the shock started to to fail It was leaking at one point and the bottom seal have slipped out then the plunger must have slip out causing it jam or freeze the shock and so it had to give somewhere. I am just lucky it broke the way it did. I havn't taken apart yet will try to do this weekend and i see if a can tell anymore. I am still just hoping nothing else is wrong. swing arm or what have you.

Just be careful when you take the shock off. That spring could still bel loaded. Be even more careful if you attempt to dismantle it. Good luck

Wow that is interesting, can you take another close up photo of the bent part of the shock, in your photos, I can see where the end came out and that would have allowed a misalignment of everything and cause it to bend. Ick

Got the schocks thanks for your help. Gordy was very helpful and i hope he like buffolo wild wings. I put them on and should be back on the road soon.

Interesting thing is they were about and inch shorter and this is going to cost some ground clearance.

Does anyone know if the t-2 vs t-4 front shocks are differnt sizes or can someone get me a messurement on a t-2 stock shock. Is there any other concerns with running a shorter schock?

OK here what i found out. The older modle had a 20" shock and the new modles have an 18" I have the 18" on but it is costing alot of ground clearance. I talk to HJoyner and the 20" are on back order and sounded like it maybe a long time. I am going to start looking into other options. any suggestions.

      Hi,  can someone please verify if my timing marks are correct?   
      The images are of the timing marks at TDC.  the Crank/Cam marks look right on, but I was surprised to see the cam's timing marks completely off the page.   I was thinking I had it 180 out somehow because that's the symptoms I'm experiencing when trying to start it.   When I'm cranking it, and trying at full throttle, I hear some light (muffled) backfiring that sounds like on the intake side.

      This is a general comment on the support I received from Joyner-USA in Phoenix, AZ.  I needed one headlight assembly for my Renegade because the mounting pin was broken.  Duct tape and bailing wire held it in place for a few years.  To my surprise, they had them IN STOCK.  I bought two and kept one of  my good old ones as a backup.   They completed their move to a new address at 2415 S 18th Pl, Phoenix AZ from their former Riverside location.  As a gift, Jake gave me two T-shirts.  He said he as most of the parts for my  2014 Joyner Renegade.  I looked at his yard and he has several engines and UTVs in stock, mostly the 1100cc engines and several Renegades.  Maybe a Trooper or two was buried in there somewhere.  Everything was crated and outdoors.  I hope he moves his inventory indoors, out of the weather.  Their website says their hours are 9:00AM - 5:00PM but their actual hours are 10:00AM - 5:00PM.  I arrived at about 9:20AM and no one was there; place locked up.  I was a little upset that with a 9:00AM opening, someone should have been there.  I was concerned that I made a 70 mile round trip for nothing.  Fortunately, one of his employees showed up and told me of their later hours.  So, everything turned out fine.  I got the parts I needed and two T-shirts.  This is based upon a one time, 1st time experience.  I hope future vists are just as good.

      My grandpa has a Yamaha wolverine side by side. It has a solid rear axle.  The problem is it tears up the yard when he turns. Question is has anyone or can he make it into a differential by anyway gear box swap or change some gears. Thanks if you can help!

      Anyone have an outer cv joint ball cage? Mine is cracked up. Other than that it's a good axel.
      Please let me know

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!
