Stock shock has 5" of travel so you are getting maybe 9" at the rear wheels. I lowered my diff so that i could use all the travel the cv joints give you,

Is it possible to chance the angle and placment of the stock shock to give more travel ? how much would I be looking at for a set of aftermarket shocks ? what is prefered Fox or King ? one dealer said they deal with king and the others have no clue wha to use

Flatbed & myself are using Fox. Travel is limited to the critical failure angle of the Axle CV joint. Joyner took the joints nearly as far as you can. You can get a little more travel by lowering the diff as Flatbed did and I am doing. There was a little more travel not being used in the compression mode. By lowering the diff so the axle CV joint is in a more neutral position you can add a little more travel, not much. Flatbed will have to share what he has found. I will not be complete until late Jan. King is a good shock but no one until Flatbed has done actual testing. We are both using Fox so that is the only data so far. I am working with Simon at OffRoad Warehouse located on Balboa in San Diego. They have a website, Visit offroad Website

I carefully messured My front suspension and was getting 6-3/4" to 7" on my T2. That is allowing the shock to fully compress before the spring is fully compressed and bottomed out. If the spring is adjusted more than aprox. 2" from the top of the threads to the top of the spring, the spring will bottom before the shock. I remounted my shocks both top and bottom to new locations. I now have aprox. 9-3/4" of travel on the front, I also run about 250lbs of nitrogen and 20 weight shock oil. So far I am real happy buthavn't fully tuned it in yet. I do that when both the front and rear are done. If I lower the front differental, I can increase this by maybe another 2" which I may do later.

My rear travel measures to have a total of aprox 9-3/4" of travel. eCurrently I have just finished lowering my read dif. The large sleeve covering the CV joint closest to the dif. is now 1/16" above the frame tubing. The axel will collide with the trailing link suspension arm befor the CV joint reaches it's lower useable limit. Even though I haven't moved my shocks yet, It looks like I can expect to get aprox. 13" of travel when I done. If I need extra spring compression rate, I'll first try increasing the nitrogen charge or else I can fairly easily go to a heavier spring. By lowering the dif. this much, I had to build a new skid plate under it.

would you guys suggest adding the shocks on at the dealer so I can finance it all, or would you suggest not because i MAY NEED TO MAKE NEW MOUNTS AND GET different lenght shocks ?

To get the full amount of travel you will need to alter the lower rear shock mount along with lowering the diff. You will also have to put a bump-stop on the shock shaft to keep your cv's from pulling out. 14 1/2" travel with stock cv'S

On my rear susp my axles are rubbing the trailing arms when they are in full drop, and also when fully compressed. I have relieved the arms so that i can get the most out of the cv's. I am going to replace the rear cv's boots only so i can see the cv's, and what the end of the axles look like. I would like to put longer rear axles in. with longer axles you would probably get 18" of travel in the back.

    • 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.
