    Lightbulb A little suspension improvement

    Noticed that there wasn't enough tension on the shock spring to keep the spring base plate from rising up and sliding off. Was not able to find the right sized spacer to add a little down pressure to the spring so I used a couple orthodontic mini rubber bands and it has worked perfectly. just take the shock off of the top mount slide the spring and plastic spring catch down and insert rubber bands there until the desired tension is achieved.
    Local dentist office "all about smiles" gave us some of the rubber bands for free.

    Great idea, you could also slide the shock spring retainers up and put a dab of E6000 on the ball end cup where the spring retainer seats. Then slide it all back down and firmly squeeze it together to get the E6000 evenly distributed, let it dry for about one hour and should be good. Next time you take it apart, just pull it apart and pull the E6000 off, kinda like rubber cement but much stronger. Don't use too much or you'll have a heck of a time getting it apart again.
