Snapped Radflo 2.5

Well guys I have been having super bad luck lately. Finally got my leaking m226 fixed again and reinstalled in my truck again. Found out the small little sensor switch is what was keeping it in the locked position by hanging up on the locker somehow.

So I had the newly built axle in for about a half day. Took a dip right by my house at moderate speed. Ive gone way faster through the same dips before. Heard an odd clunking and found this on my 2.5 radflo. Pretty messed up for a little over 2 year old off road shock. Luckily radflo is close to me and I can go there on monday. Hopefully it doesnt cost a lot.

Sucks man. Speed probably was not the factor here but previous abuse created a weak point. Keep us posted on what happens next.

Yah Ive been in good contact with Greg lately since my school is so close to his shop. Just talked to him, if I was at school close to him he said he would just fix them for me, but Im in so cal right now so Im just going to go to radflo on monday. They will take care of me for sure. It definitely looks like this was from previous abuse and the piston was just unthreading over time.

Yah I've jumped my truck like a 100 times. Just funny that it broke on a little dip right by my house. It's been waiting to go for sure.

Took them to radflo this morning. They are going to fix them and rebuild them both and hopefully have them back to me tomorrow. We'll see how much it ends up costing.
