Blast rear suspension

Hello All,

I am restoring/customizing/hot-rodding an 06' Blast for my wife to ride. This unit was set on fire for ins. fraud. It needs a new rear shock (among numerous other things). I would like something with greater tech. and adjust-ability. Has anyone out there done any modification, or an aftermarket replacement for this. Staying with the stock length/mounting in this application would be best, but would consider options. This one is frozen up and I cannot get an accurate length or travel needs.


Thank you in advance for any assistance!

get a stock caliper, new pads, and add steel brake line. It's plenty ...teach her to slip the clutch/down shift and use engine compression to help out
