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.

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.)

Welcome!

Still want to know what you hit, jumped, flew off of or over. Wow, what happened!

rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

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.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!

    • Trooper computer programmer

      There is a company I ran across at the CES trade show this year. They make a programmer that should be able to program the Troopers computer. About $300. The Trooper s computer is a standard Bosch car computer. The only differance is that it is programed for the Trooper. The programmer will program most any car or truck so it should work. The company could probably help is finding which program the computer uses and assist finding out which computer pins to hook to. This programmer will program all aspects of the tuning including things like Pulse width tables, VE tables, Timing tables, prime pulse width, crank pulse width, after start pulse width, warmup pulse width, enrichment pulse widths, acceleration pulse widths. rev limit and more.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.
