    Arctic Cat rear shock on Ski-Doo

    So as many of you know the rear skid shock on the doos is terrible. Mine was blown and I needed a new one. I didnít want to pay $250 and have to replace it next season again so I figured why not take a fox shock off a cat and make it work.
    So this is what Iíve got so far. Four new bushings and a plastic bracket.

    I like what your doing here.

    Will the QSL shock out of the cat catalogue be the same eye - eye as what your using?

    The QSL shock from cat is $650.
    I am a big believer in that lock feature.

    You could weld rebar into that skid and it would be an upgrade.
