Shock Assembly

All hardware needed to assemble the shock is provided with the frame and replaces all hardware delivered by the shock manufacturer. That includes pre-installed bushings.

The top mount of the shock is the so-called ‘trunnion’ mount and only requires the sealed caps to be in place on the rocker link to then assemble the two 10 mm bolts delivered with the frame. Please make sure to grease the contact surfaces of the bolts and use a small amount of medium strength threadlocker on the threads then torque the bolts up to 12 nm.

The lower shock mount requires the sealed caps to be in place on the frame bearings. The shock spacers should be pressed into the eyelet of the shock, after removing any hardware from the shock’s eyelet. The lower shock mount assembly is completed by inserting the shock axle and assembling the 10 mm bolt. Please make sure to grease the contact surfaces of the shock axle and bolt and use a small amount of medium strength threadlocker on the thread and torque the bolt up to 12 nm.

When you have successfully assembled the shock, please check the free movement of the suspension by letting the air out completely, or undoing the top shock mount. See ‘Cable Routing’ for more details.
