) and probably other sources have "overload springs" to
allow normal shocks to be used on these models. When the Nivomats went out
on our 765T, I went to the overload springs and Boge (IIRC) shocks. They
I was amazed at how easy it was to change the rear springs. Once I had the
shocks out, there was only a single bolt holding each spring.
