I just put some Fox Floats and C&a Skis on my 2003 Arctic Cat F5 and noticed that there is a very small gap between the bottom of the shock to the top of the saddle on the C&As. Now when the the skis turn the saddles rub on the bottom of the shocks. I know the shock are the right length (19")...Can anyone help? The picture is from my phone and is crappy but you get the idea!!!

Looks loke you'll need to modify the ski just a bit, I've used a good belt sander on those skis before and it works good. Just take your time in doing so.

Is the shock bushed correctly? From the picture the mounting bolt seems offset, allowing the shock to drop down slightly. It could be the angle of the photo, but it does not seem to look right.

I agree with vw. Some thing doesn't look right there. The bolt should be centered in the bushing and it doesn't appear as though it is

Yesterday when i took the shock off i noticed the bushing was laying on the ground right under the sled, it must have slipped out and i didnt notice it. So i put it in and still there was a rub issue. Then i finally just trimmed the ski a little bit and it work perfect now, pus you dont even notice it. Someone else on another sit said this has happened to a couple of his sleds. Thanks for all the help!!!
