My uncle thinks they just tightened the shock, not changed the dogbone. How can I tell?
The triangles and dogbone should look something like this, if either one has extra holes then its definitely a replacement part

After looking, it seems the rear was stock. I only briefly got to ride, but it feels better.

Thats good, just check the preload on the shock also, some people think that they are like adjustable coil overs and crank down on the spring to try and lower it also
