I am new here and was wondering can anyone tell me how to get the sag out of the rear of my Viking? I have about 22 hours on it and it doesn't sit level anymore and it is driving me nuts. Thanks for the help

Mine has had a few big loads (not overloaded) and sits at about 10.5 inches now. If I lift it and let it go it sits at 11, but of course returns to 10 inches as soon as you drive it. There's nothing that you can do about it other than fit some aftermarket adjustable shocks.

I put half inch spacer in the rear shocks and it fixed my sag ...shocks with preload adjustments are easier but if you find the ride you want with a spacer does the same thing IMO.

I added a 2" Super ATV lift to the rear. It jacked the rear back up where it belongs but also moved the upper shock mounts out a little bit thus reducing the shock angle so now it sags much less under heavy load too.

check and see if they are leaking, if so they will be replaced under warranty. Mine were

I googled it and found some pics....looks like he cut a 1/2 piece of inch and a half pipe and slotted it so it can fit above the upper spring retainer plate on the shock and add 1/2" of pre-load to the shock spring.

That reminds me now, we used to do that to our motorbikes when we were kids, just cut a bit of steel water pipe with a slot in one side and squeeze it in.
