    Pretty sad for the price those cost to be just a junk china shock. Thanks for posting that link.

    When I spoke to them on the phone they said if the sale manager decides not to warranty the shock they are only 60$. They work good for what they are.....until they leak😬

    I am just going to buy two and have one on hand. Hopefully I just got a bad one.

    That's good info Dustin. It looks like the Amazon unit doesn't have a second "check" nut. Does the one from eBay?

    Yeah I noticed that. No the eBay one does not look like it does either but ebay pictures are not that reliable. The eBay one is only 750lbs spring so I am hoping I can transfer over spring an possibly lock nuts from t3 one. I am really not worried about only 1 lock nut because with the tension in the spring itís not going anywhere. I will report back if the eBay one works.

    New shock arrived and it works. Spring from the T3 (1000lbs) transferred over to the new one that had a 750lbs. Hopefully this one last longer!

    Seriously?! How close does a DAR have to get to anyone else to accomplish an inspection? Sorry to hear that Dustin. At least you two have one up and flying. Brothers usually have learned to share by time they reach your age.

    Eddie the problem is the current DAR that did mine retired. Now the closest DAR is in Idaho and in his county they are do not leave home or he is nervous about getting in trouble by traveling. Yeah good thing we learned to share!
