    I ordered a replacement spring directly from ranger earlier today. There price was about the same as numerous other places on the internet. I upgraded to 40lb shocks that were priced the same as the stock 30lb ones.

    Be careful on getting more powerful shocks. I did that and it pulled the rivets loose while it was closed. remember they were strong enuf when they were new! Probably best to use what the manufact used??

    I upgraded to a 40 for my center lid and am moving the 30 to my cooler lid. But you can see in my case it is needed.

    I get mine from C and O Marine Parts. Price is pretty good and I've even caught them on sale a couple times.
