If you had not replace only two shocks, front or rear?

Sorry for all the posts in this forum. I'm really trying to find a good way to compromise without compromising. I'm thinking of doing a front or rear only purchase, then upgrade the other in a month or two. It is silly, but it makes me feel not so bad about spending so much on suspension.....

I'm thinking kings, walker evans or exits. I want something with rebound adjustment too

I've ruled out cognito becuase they don't come with a spring, fox becuase it's just a rebuild, and afco becuase of the remote resivour.

Thanks again.

Rears. Fronts are easy to dial in, the rears are where the action is IMHO

I Have spring options for the rear for guys like you that just dont want to use the stock springs. The stock springs work great but our true dual rate does work better. Believe it or not the XP doesnt seem to have the same spring issue as the RZR S did.

Also to answer your question...the rear is getting all the abuse. So i would start there.

Whoa! Jim.... Easy I think there are rules on this forum.

And back on topic, can you give me a ballpark price for shocks with springs?
Thanks

LOL Crazy! The front and rear shock kit is 1999.99 so half that would be rears only. The spring kit is 299.99. The only catch is you still have to use some of your OEM shock parts. Frame reducers, collars, and you lower spring retainer/rock gaurds.

That's too bad 'cause I plan to sale my old shocks. I'm sure they wouldn't sale with missing parts.

Seems to put your shocks back of the pack, even though I've only heard good things about them.

To be 100% honnest with you, The difference I have seen is from 600 complete to 400 incomplete. The price to replace the oem parts is more than the difference that you make up selling them complete. Its the rock gaurds and such that get spendy. We are working on offerning them complete, it just has not made sence to most of my customers. Good luck with what ever choice you make, and if we can help you in the future let us know!!!
