You can buy the new stock shocks for the trooper from silverbullet , no limits and jmc, I think the rear are 200.00 each and front 125.00

I blew my rear shock out 2 seasons ago. We are going to be going out this year and I need a shock. If anyone has a used stock shock they want to sell or a new one please send me an email [email protected]

thanks Anthony

That is a lot of coin for a sub-standard product made in China. Thing could not cost more than $30 from the factory. JMHO, if you have to go to a new shock put the money towards a couple of FOX shocks or another USA product in the rear. You will save money in the long run and your machine will handle better. The factory shocks are not rebuild-able and fail. I blew one also and upgraded to FOX so I walk the talk.

I know they are expensive for a junk shock, I have alot of things going on. I lost my job a few years back, then opened my own shop and after awhile work fell off so I took a job and still work at my shop on customer projects and try to do my own. I really want to get the trooper back together so my wife and kids could go out but I need a few more things for it and dont want to spend 200 on 1 shock

Hang in there as some of the posters on here have changed out their shocks and may have a used one at a reasonable price. Mine are still mounted on my Trooper as spring struts so I don't have a spare. I added Fox shocks without coil-overs. The mod I did is posted on this site.

I read about your shocks, I have been a memeber since 08, I just havent posted in a very long time. It just wasnt in my cars to fix the trooper and use it so it got parked in the back of the shop then moved into storage in my grandfather garage once he passed. We just went thru some hard times as my wife an I lost the baby we where expecting. I know she has been on me to fix the trooper since she really loves going to the dessert and to the river and ride. Heck she has wanted it fixxed since it broke but I could never seem to find the time to work on it or when I was slow I had no money. LOL now I have neither. I could do without the expense of the dessert trips but know she enjoys it and my kids do also.

I started on the rear cage to ad seats for my kids ,so I need to finish the cage,but seats and belts,get a shock and limit straps so I dont blow out the shocks anymore, and pay the tags. Im looking forward to being able to use it but not spending the money lol

We know what you mean. We too hate to let any dollars go in this economic market. Problem is at our ages if we don't we may not get to enjoy before that last ride comes knocking & we can't take it with us !!!! It has been quiet here on the board lately so if you don't hear from anyone just add a little post to this topic so it stays at the top of the list. Someone out there has what you need & will contact you. Just may take a little time.

Where do you need limit straps if you are still running the stock shocks?

I thought I read along time ago that the stock shock was limiting how much the arm would drop, If thats the case then I assume the shock with too stiff of a coild rebounded and yanked itself so hard that it blew out. I planned to limit the travel so the shock would not top out

You are correct, the shock has little rebound damping and bangs itself apart. Limit straps are the way to go if you are going to run the stock shocks in the rear. The fronts don't have the same problem.

well I got a call to make tomorrow and am crossing my fingers that the place has a used one. I have an extended warr but they dont cover shocks. Not sure if they cover consiqinsel damage , like if one part fails and then causes another to get damaged ? I know working at automotive dealers they normally do with extended warr. If thats the case maybe I could nicely talk the shop into saying a weld for the tab broke or a bolt snapped for the spindle and caused it to then take out the shock ? maybe throw them alittle something for the trouble
