    Had them put 1080HD on as per spec
    Andy, I don't see a requirement for the HD, just the 1080 unless I am missing something. Can you explain?

    Good Morning Steve and guys. I have 51 Pacer and have not looked closely at the bungee's yet. But correct me if Im wrong including to the above document the 51 used a 1380HD?? It also appears used slightly different shock strut assembly??

    Steve, I though I saw the 1080hd listed somewhere for the pa-22 but cant think where i had read that. might not have been been an official doc. seems like in the early days in the forum, 1080hd was the std for the 22 series. will look at my notes when i get home.

    this is probably what i had read, but might not be officially correct.

    Yes and we were using a 1280 because they were sagging in a year. Seems to have gone the other way now.

    We have a PA-22/20-135 and we just installed new 1080HD&1280HD combo on ours. That's what we had previously and they were 4-5 years old and starting to sag. Not really noticed the new ones being overly stiff. Maybe my jarring landings are masking that.

    Remember early 20s narrow gear. Later 20s 22/20s wide gear. Some early 20s converted to wide gear (mine). 22s wide gear but a lot less load due to more weight on nose gear than a tailwheel but a little heavier empty weight. It's all a matter of load and leverage= ride quality and bounce. Different strokes for different folks.
