    Hey guys, I finally picked up some Old Man Emu Shocks and Springs. As some of you know, this has been long overdue with my cruiser (100). Everyone is busy with Summer winding down, but would like some help if possible getting the new suspension parts installed and adjusted. I'm providing beer and pizza to those willing to turn a few wrenches. Probably only need a few dudes with some know-how, but the more the better! Let me know what dates work for everyone and we will get it set up.

    Our October meeting is on Saturday the 14th at noon. We could start after that if it's not too far out.

    get some penetrating oil on the rear top shock bolts that bolt the bracket to the chassis.

    If your swapping or cranking your torsion bars you'll need an alignment soon after!

    Huge huge THANKS! to everyone that helped out over the weekend. She's riding high-er. I'll be re-indexing torsion bars soon since the nose is about 2" below the rear despite cranking them all the way down. From my understanding, the rear will settle down a little over the near term.
