First off I'd like to throw my positive comments into the mix regarding the '04 SGS DH pro. I recently replaced my Banshee scream/monster T combo with a complete SGS DH pro and it's made a world of difference on the race course (just recently attained enough points to bump myself up to expert class). I found it a bit weird buying a highend bike from Sportchek (the exclusive distributors of Iron Horse in Canada), but the bike is fantastic. I find myself carrying more speed into rugged corners and pedaling hard throughout the rough stuff.

My question is a simple one. What are the dimensions for the bottom reducers/bushing/sleeves to connect the 4-way Swinger to the e13 linkage? It seems I have worn down the aluminum sleeve that fits over the reducer and between the shock and the e13 linkage, leading to a small amount of vertical play in the linkage. I am looking to order replacements, assuming that they are a standard part that can be ordered through my Manitou dealer. If they are a standard part, does anyone know the part number?

Thanks in advance

SGS's

Sounds like you have bent the lower shock pivot bolt, this is fairly common. This results from bottoming out- you will need more pressure in the shock, to wind the 16mm volume adjustor and/or up your spring rate.

Replace the lower pivot bolt, and when doing so set the rebound knob so it faces down- if you don't it will hit the plate and snap it off.
