    Default Gas shock for Spyder seat

    I recently bought a BRP gas shock for my 2015 RT aftermarket seat that would not stay up on its own. However when I put it on,
    the seat still would not stay up for long. Took it to the dealer and they put another new one on with the same results, saying my aftermarket seat was too heavy for the stock shock. I bought a shock from the part's store that was recommended by someone on the forum. Works great! No return on shock from dealer, so I now have an almost new BRP shock that I will send someone if they need it. If you have a stock seat and are having problems holding seat up you can have this one for shipping only. My area code is 32780 so you can figure out the price.

    While we're on the subject of seats, I replaced my stock seat with the Ultimate seat when I had barely 600 miles on it. It has been stored in the box in my workshop since. If anyone wants it, if you pay shipping, it's yours.

    I recently started having some issues with my seat (original) not staying up. Is there a way to adjust the shock or do I need to just replace it?

    You need to replace the shock/cylinder. They are disposable. Very easy to replace.

    If you click on my profile,then go to page 2 on my forum posts you will find part numbers and website for a seat strut which is so strong it makes your seat pop up by itself and its only 16$.Also very easy to install.On page 3 you can find part numbers for struts for your rear trunk lid,you actually need several parts to add an extra shock so you have twice the lifting power but all pn,s are listed.
