1994 mach 1 front end improvements

Postby youno » January 22nd, 2002, 10:20 am

I love this sled, has an m-10 under it, slight engine mod., usi skies. It's just the front suspension, needs some help. I have checked out many new sleds, but i'm very comfortable, and confident on my old '94. It ain't overly fast(but still gets it) I talked to fast, they said shocks would help, anyone know how much? Any good ideas would be helpful. I ain't going to part with it till I ride one that I love.(if we ever get any fricken snow)

'94...???? Does that have DSA???? I can't remember... If it is the old (don't remember what Doo called it) under the hood shock design I don't think there is much you can do.... But if it has DSA I'm sure shocks would help, and that is probably about all you can do. However I'm not a doo man, just ride with some.....

I don't think there is anything you can do although I have seen a few around here, where the people have putt dsa front suspension in it..

THERE IS NOT MUCH YOU CAN DO WITH THE PRS SUSPENSION, I HAD A 94 MACH 1 AND KEPT ON BREAKING THE FRONT TRAIL ARMS.I WOULD TAKE OFF THE SWAY BAR,IT UNBOLTS OFF THE BOTTOM AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT IT WILL IMPROVE HANDLEING UP FRONT. THAT SLED IS A GREAT LAKE AND RIVER RUNNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lucky for you I know that a 94 MACH has DSA. I would use a slighly longer travel FOX shock with a progressive rate spring. Not too costly and way better than stock.
Ride on!

Sorry I thought we were talking MACH Z. Must have missed the 1. I do have a 94 MACH Z that I use for asphalt drag racing. Really stinkin' fast too!
Ride on!
