Rear shocks

Hello was wondering if anyone would have the answer I'm looking for replacement rear shocks for a 2005 john deere trail buck 500.
where would be the best place to find these I don't see any markings on them to even know what to ask for.
Thanks

Hi Oaktree,

Welcome to Trackshare!

The 2005 John Deere Trail Buck 500 is a Green and Yellow painted BRB (CanAM) Traxter 500.





I would go do the JD dealership and ask them what the replacement shocks cost would be, get a response, and then leave promptly.

I would then go to a CanAm dealership and ask them for a price quote on 2005 Traxter shocks. Compare the 2 prices, and leave promptly.

Ebay has a used pair for $100.00 USD + $15.00 Shipping.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2001-BOMBARD...89cee0&vxp=mtr

Or go online shopping for them.... EX. $75.00 USD each,
http://www.canampartshouse.com/oempa...ear-suspension
Get 2 of #7. dismantle your old shocks, and transfer the parts onto the new shock.

Looked on Kijiji Found a cool bag for your ride!

Also, Contact some of the Vendors thats sponsor Trackshare, they might be willing to help you out with some after market options.

Happy shopping,

Moo.

Hi Oaktree

"Do you have the measurements off your shocks, I may have some new ones that would fit it.

Be sure to jack the machine off the ground so the tires are hanging free, then measure them from center of each bolt.

Moo.

More important then the length of the shocks would be the compressed length. no sense having shock thats don't let your suspension compress fully.
