I bled the air out of all my shocks so I could drop it down close to the floor. Turns out my mishap at KOH bent my left rear shock and it won't collapse without jumping on it. When we raised it on the hoist, it wouldn't extend. So, looks like I need to buy a new shock.
Before you go out and buy a new shock, blow it up with air or n2 to see if you can extend it back out and then replace the shaft. Mucho cheaper.
