XP front and rear shock swap completed on my 1000S

Well i finally completed my Rear XP front shock swap on my 1000S. So now i have 16" travel on all four corners of my 2017 1000S. The thing handles amazing its like a stable slinky. Really hard to explain but its a beast now. I did the complete front XP suspension swap like 6 months ago and tonight we got a set of XP front shocks Fabbed up on the rear of the S. Love this machine! Next week i get my SDR XP doors i can't wait to get them installed!

Pretty cool!
Did you extend the rear A Arms? You are using XP Axles and Brake Lines? Did you put different springs on the Rear?

Re: XP front and rear shock swap completed on my 1000S

I am running spacers in the rear and offset wheels to get to 69-70" in the rear.

GSP axles can take extreme angels they are the same as warthog axles. no need for A arms or brake lines in the rear.

i moved the shock mount out a little bit just before axle bind and re welded the tabs and put the XP shocks on. I have not been able to bottom out the rear yet on the trails. With the S shocks i was bottoming out every ride

I imagine the wider stance alone would make the cart handle better. Good on you for the project!

Did you change out the rear springs on those shocks. Iím almost done with my rear setup like this. The xp front springs canít handle the weight of the rear.
