I am going shopping in the morning for used parts, (found a guy on craigslist)
65091
either to buy service parts or a replacement unit. Both are in budget. How can I identify if a replacement unit will work in my '92 indy 500 SP 500 using the same track, minor mods stuff is OK, but don't want to dive into a money pit with no bottom.

I will have my suspension with me to compare what I can.

This photo is my unit.

1st you have several threads about this, keep it on the main one so there isn't several going with several different posts.

2nd an Xtra-10 is the way to go. You will have to drill new mounting holes for the rear bracket and move the front bolt/cross shaft forward some but there is a TON of videos and threads on this all over the internet and doesn't cost much other then the suspension, Stainless Steel Rivets and a few other minor things vs a sub-par suspension that you have now that will increase the ride on it by 1000% over the old one. Look at the position of the shocks and the height of the rear rear shock cross shaft compared to yours there is a big difference.

Just so you know the last x10 I picked up came with the Fox shocks, looked just like that one and cost $100!
So if this Guy has one don't pay more than $150 with Newly Rebuilt shocks!
Also it may not be in your budget but if you can find a good used 1" pull off track it would help over your stock one.

When you say 1" track, what does that mean?

1" track is the size of the paddles. Biggest you can go with those sleds is a 1" track without studs or .91" track with 1" studs safely.

I have a 91 Indy 500 that I'm running a 1 1/4" track with no clearance issues and we used to run the 1 1/4" Simmons speed cleats or some that Cycle Works used to offer on all of our SKS models.
