probably gonna either need to get your shock revalved for a +4 or else buy another shock setup for a 4 or a shaw or something. the problem is when u add length to the swingarm it puts more leverage on the shock which in a way makes it like the shock is softer and the rear will sit lower.

umm on that im not too too sure. i think works does them cause a friend of mine was going to have his done im sure there are a lot of places maybe someone else on here will have some input. im pretty sure that it can get really expensive to the point where u might be better off getting an aftermarket shock maybe ebay one thats already re valved or check on here. there is a couple on ebay right now one was done by cascade u should look into those and ive also heard of a few people that use R1 rear shocks but i dont know exactly how that works out. just a few options i know of. hope that helps

My +4 still uses the stock shock. Just keep adusting the tension rings until you get the height where you want it, then you can adjust the dampening a bit.

Put a floor jack under the main frame (with a rag or towel) and jack up the suspension to help you adjust it. If you dont mind, you can remove the shock and put it in a vise and adjudt it like that. The top ring is just a lock, the bottom one moves the spring tension.
