    Default Where can I find parts to repair a pull sled

    I am trying to rebuild an old pull sled. The metal skis are on leaf springs. Just forward of the leaf spring is a small shock absorber that keeps the ski aligned and dampens the ski tip's up/down movement. The shock on one side is missing.
    Does anyone know where I can find a replacement shock absorber?

    Perhaps someone out there has an old pull sled like this that they are willing to part out.

    Thanks,

    -Dan

    Here are some pics of the pull sled. One ski is in good shape. The other side has the shock absorber broken off. I would really appreciate it if you have any suggestions where to track down a new shock absorber.
    Thanks,

    I would just pop the good one off and take it down to oh-oh-O'reileys and see what they have that will bolt up.

    Dennis Kirk should have an array of replacement shocks that would work. Take it off and measure eye to eye and find one that works online or catalog.

    Just a thought bit it might be a good idea to replace both shocks.
    The other one may be worn out or close to breaking as well.
    I would check a couple of auto parts stores locally. Maybe the used snowmachine salvage place in Anchorage.
    Then check Dennis Kirk.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I tried a couple of the auto parts stores without luck. TrailerCraft or the Anchorage Salvage might be a better bet.

    The more I look at the project, the more I think I may just scrap the homemade deck and rebuild it. There are some pretty poor welds, which probably led to the ski breaking. Despite the damage, it was still a great buy, and will suit my needs well.

    If anyone has a pull sled on skis, feel free to post some pics to help me with some design ideas.

    I'll post a final pic of the project.
