Dislocation cones question.


Recommended Posts

Hi there. I recently fitted the correct length +2" shocks to my Hi-Cap 110. Since then i have had my rear springs dislocate twice, whilst off road. My rear springs consist of the normal large spring, plus an extra inner smaller spring inside the big one. Im guessing the purpose of the inner spring is to provide support for heavy weights.

My question is:

Can i fit regular dislocation cones on the back, even if i have this inner smaller spring?

Thanks in advance.

You don't have x eng springs fitted by any chance ? Simon did a product for extra traction/ dislocation with an inner spring arrangement, doesn't answer ya question :0) but may explain the springs

If it were x-springs it wouldn't dislocate ;)

Because its not a standard spring setup. The springs are +2", but until now the shocks were standard, and would bottom out. Recently one failed, so i replaced them with +2" shocks.

Anyway, the consensus is that i should remove theinner spring nd fit cones.

Thanks guys.

The cone bolts to the spring mount on the sxle, the round disc & steel strip are used to clamp the spring to the upper spring seat. Thus the axle drops away from the spring (leaving it hanging) & when it comes back up, the cone relocates the spring onto the spring seat.

This :)

Would it be helpful if I got a couple of pictures of mine fitted?
