They wear out so they reduce in thickness as they supposed to do.

Thanks Big Grin

There are a bunch of manufacturers that use bushings but in this case the issue is in the exposure to mud dust dirt so many of us used a moto style carter to protect the BB area

I have a 2017 sanction expert and was looking to upgrade to a coil shock. Does anybody know what spring I would need? I am about 115 fully geared and ride a lot of jumps. With the different linkage design, I wasn’t sure how accurate the spring rate calculators would be

Thanks

In any case i'm 80kg geared up and i use the 450 to 550 lbs cane creek progressive spring!

I bought a MRP Progessive rate spring 450+ and makes 500 on the end of the stroke.
I'm around 194 lbs full kitted.
Only two rides, a couple of jumps and it's seem fairly good!
Cane Creek also does a progressive one.

Make yourself a favour a order a pair of off-set ones from offsetbushings.com. it will lower that bb and will make the bike corner like on rails.

Anyone has any experience with a longer stroke shock?

Contemplating if I should try a 8.5x2.75 shock for a little more cushion.

you feel that you need more cushion... on a Sanction?, although, I had the x2 on it, for me it felt as cushioned as it gets. I did put a dogbone link with bearings though.

having some trouble with the linkage on my bike, it's a sanction team 2016 if it makes a difference. Basically the linkage is moving when put under pressure from the pedals. I have replaced the dog bone link bushings and the problem still persists. Is this a common problem has anyone else experienced this? Any help would be appreciated

How long ago did you replace the bushings and do you ride in wet conditions? The stock bushings wear very quickly. After about 70 miles of riding in a 7 day period it's almost time to replace mine again. I checked them a couple of days ago and the wear is very visible.

If you want to replace the bushings you unfortunately have to replace the entire dog bone link (as it sounds you did) by contacting GT. I'm pushing my bushings out today to get the dimensions and ordering about 20 of them for spares from a separate source.

Minor inconvenience for an otherwise sweet ride. If you browse the internet enough you will see people have been doing various after market work like the example shown above.


I know this post is very old but I was wondering if you remember where you got all the replacement bushings from and the size of them as I am having the same problem with my gg sanction

Thanks

If you want the original, tritoncycles has it.
if you want a better solution/replacement there are several, I bought the CXP Racing dogbone w/bearings.
There's algo the IGUS solution which replaces the original bushings with a new type, a much better one.
everything is explained here in this thread if you search; refs, sites, feedback!

;D
