How to replace GT LTS-5 rear elastomer shock with GT LTS-3 shock

Posted by on in Suspension


I show how to repair a GT LTS-5 rear elastomer shock by adapting a 1996 GT LTS-3 shock. I think the GT LTS-4 has the same rear shock as the LTS-5, so this will work for that bike also. The rear elastomer shocks seem to decay over time. And the rear shocks for the GT LTS-5 bikes are just not available, so you can’t simply get a replacement. I had read that it was possible to use the elastomer shock from a 1996 GT LTS-3. So I bought one, and did it. Here is the video.
