Q: Can I loosen the top screw on my DSC Adjusters to make them rotate easier?
A: No, that will not help the knob turn easier. See article below that will help explain.
Q: Do I need to discharge the shock before removing the DSC Adjuster knobs?
A: No, you can safely remove the adjusters knobs without discharging the shock. However, if your adjuster knobs spin freely and do not seem to have a stopping point, do not remove the adjuster knobs at all. There is a good chance something is not right internally and will need to be inspected by a professional.
Q: Can I buy the new Orange and Grey DSC knobs?
A: Yes, we can sell you the new DSC knobs, or you can send them in to us for replacement. There will be an additional cost for parts and labor.
