Not sure but I just looked at my '03, '05, '06, and '09 which are standard models. Mine are all the same, compress the spring, the keeper drops down, and slides past the shock shaft with the notch opening.Buffalo said:Maybe there was a slight difference in the 07 shock and the 09 one. They have the same part number but Suzuki might have sourced them from different suppliers leading to slight differences in construction.
