Can it be done...?

Question: My '07 shark came with the air adjustable shocks via air pump. If I wanted to replace these air shocks with standard lowering shocks, can this be done and if so, is the job gonna be a simple switch out or is there more than meets the eye to go from air shocks to standard shocks. Thanks for your input!

simple as unbolting the air shocks and replacing them with standard shorter shocks. Nothing to it.

4 bolts and a jack to hold it up and about 15minutes of your day and your done.

Look into Ohlin, Works, Terrycable or Progressive as replacements. They are all better than stock depends a lot on your price range.

I went with Progressive 940 and an happy with the improvement in ride and handling while still keeping the lowered look. $ 459.00 from US Motoman
