Ok, you know the little eyelets at the end of the shock that the bolt goes through? (Specifically the top of the rear shock in my case) Sometimes they are aluminum. They come in different sizes/widths for different machines. I am assuming you have to go straight to the manufacture since eyelets are different for different shock brands. Drilling would do you no good, they are already have the same size hole. I was wondering if someone knew a place that had them or could make them.

If you knew the measurments of an old one, you could have one spun off in a lathe in a minute or two.

Whats the shock, stocker, Works, Elka,???.

Yeah my buddy who had a machine shop with a lathe sold out a few years ago otherwise I would get him to do it. Its a rear TCS shock going from a stock frame to an aftermarket frame which has a narrower mounting location. I could grind for a while and make it work I guess but I hate that incase I want to sell the shock later.

are both of the frames 250R? it should be the same. is it just a little tight or way off? i had to grind down the aluminum eyelets your talking about once, to fit a-arms. wasnt really a big deal.

TCS realy nothing more than a reworked Works shock, you remember the Rinos Legacy ATV youst to sell, same thing.
Need a Works dealer.
You can call Works or CT Racing, TCS was located at CT for a good while & still close so Allen would know.
Shucks, measure one & I'll see if I have a piece of round stock that size & spin some out.
Give me a 0.0000 measurement though, inside bore, outside, lenght, steps, lip, dont leave any out & if I cant Chuckie can.

Thanks Neil, Ill get some measurements. If it was the front shocks I would say yes they are the same thing pretty much( i think my red R has rhino legacy shocks in the front). My black R has works front and rear so Im swapping shocks. But the red Rs rear shock is a TCS for sure and its completely different from the works shock on my black one. There is a pretty good difference in the rear shock mounting location between to the 2 frames, not sure why. You could almost run the shock without the spacers its that narrow but you would still need a spacer for the bolt to go through in the shock.(if that makes sense) Ill take some pics and see if we cant come up with something.
