Hey folks, I have a 2013 spyder rt se5. I really don't notice anything happening when I depress my rear shock rocker. Should I notice any movement when I depress it? Sound?

Gidday. Rear shock rocker? Is that another name for the rear shock absorber. If so it should compress a little if you give it a good shove downwards, then return.

I hit the rocker switch to adjust the rear shock but I dont feel anything happening. Should i?
Not necessarily. The movement is small and hard to notice.
With the Spyder inside a relatively dark garage, turn it ON, point the headlight toward a wall and exercise the switch and watch the beam on the wall. The farther from the wall that it is, the more noticeable the change will be.......if there is any change at all. This is a fairly common point of failure.

Awesome. Great idea. Thanks

The engine running and in 1St gear with your
foot on the brake. Then you will feel up and down movement won't be much. Also can have another person get on and off and you should feel it move to correct the ride height.
Give this a try and let us know.
