How to Install a Cane Creek Spring on a Double Barrel Rear Shock


How to remove a spring from your shock:

First, remove the lower hard wear out of the eyelet to allow the spring to pass through or over the outlet. Now take the pre-load collar and go counter clockwise. You can use a double barrel spanner if it is really tight for more leverage on the collar. Once it is loose, bring the collar all the way to the top, press the spring clip forward in the spring, which should give you some clearance to pull the clip out. Once the clip is removed, pull the spring off, change your spring, wipe away any grit and grime, and now reinstall.

Great Method for Removing Stripped Screws

Whole Bike

This video will show you how to remove a stripped screw. You can use this method on pretty much any stripped screw. As you can see, this screw was stripped and I created a flathead, which I removed with a flathead screwdriver. This is called the slotting method. The best way to do this is with a dremel or a rotary tool and cutting the slot into it. If you don’t have one of these, you could use a hacksaw or something similar, but it doesn’t work as well.
