    Default F3-S R Shock Bolt Torque

    I hope to have my Stage 2 Elka R shock installed (finally) within the next couple of weeks. Anyone know what the correct torque spec (in ft/lbs) is for the upper and lower shock mounting bolts? TY!

    Here you go, just had mine installed not too long ago.
    Tip: when you install it you got to play with the jack(up and down)so it aligns the wholes for easy uninstall/install.

    TY!

    Yea, I've watched a shock swap video on YT; to see how they propped the Spyder up---got my rolling floor jack and some 4 x 4 lumber bits ready to go.

    Thought it would be handy (and kinda nice!) to have some hot "umbrella girls" on hand to provide some shade for me to work in. Shot an E Mail to BRP to see about sponsorship and the umbrella "tech support"--------------------haven't heard anything back yet.......................odd??

    It is also recommended by BRP to change those nylon nuts. I imagine most people reuse them, but manual says to replace if removed.

    They do call on replacing lots of bolts in general but as long as nylon is not stripped i re-use them.
