I have a 2006 rear shock for one of my YZ250 with the 18mm shaft. Somehow the aluminum threads on the shock body got messed up so it didn't want to thread up any more when adjusting to a stiffer spring. I put the steel nut on there thinking that it would clean up the soft aluminum threads but all I did was end up messing the entire thing up & not I can't get it off... :-[
My question for you guys is will a 2005 or earlier shock body work with my 2006 components or were there internal changes to make this not work. My thinking was use a shock body from a 2005 or earlier & just transfer all my parts / guts / internals over from the 2006. Reason being is I can get a 2005 shock cheaper at the moment than I can a 2006 or newer one.
LMK your thoughts or if I need to start saving my pennies :-]
