i'm not following you here bro..the swing arm doesn't lower to attach the shock..it goes up..well..the rear axle tubbing goes up anyway...you didn't put the axle tubbing from the brake to the differental on upside down did you ??. if not..try loosening the swing arm bearing lock nuts. and you may have gotten your u-joint on the drive shaft in a bind somehow..and it's not letting the swing arm go up high enough to attach the upper and lower part of your shock. thats about all i know that will stop you from hooking your shock up..only other thing that might be a problem..is you put your brakes backing plate on the wrong side of the axle tubbing on the right side of your tubbing.

it only goes on one way. i cant rotate the tubbing lest the shock mount be on the opposite side facing backwards. ill go try and loosen up the lock nuts and see if that helps


oh.. when u said the swingarm might not go up high enough it dont have a problem goin up its just im off about 2 inches b4 i can slide the bottom part of the shock into the mount.

Welcome to the forums. I'm having a hard time figuring out what you're talking about, too.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Are you saying the shock is too long or seems to be too long?

Ok, I know what you're talking about now. The shock just fully extended. Just jack the ATV up by jacking it up under the engine and let the swing arm hang down as far as it can. If the shock is still too long, you will have to compress it some way. You might be able to use a pry bar to sit under it and let the end of the pry bar sit on part of the swingarm or something and then lift up on it. You might even be able to use a board or something to lift it up.
