Re: Rear suspension

The springs are only 1/2 the problem..sacked out tenders from day one.pogo stock mains and loosing ground clearance when you back them all off....
The valving on these stock shocks is really sub-par/ and a rebuild/re-valving is night and day to just adding springs.

Remember that polaris doesn't know if 2 large people are riding in these..so it is set-up pretty stiff to encompass all the bases...

Ed the suspension guy ( pound sand on here) can really fix you up.

Re: Rear suspension

If you have the Fox or Walker Evan shocks you should get a set of Dual Rate springs all around and you'll have a better ride with added ride height. I run racer tech heavy on mine. I hear Shock Therapy is also a good company, and they also can do shock work. Make sure your shocks are not leaking as well. Good luck!

Re: Rear suspension

You might consider a new set of shock/spring combo from any number of suppliers, too. On the budget side, Ted at www.banditutvsuspension.com knows his stuff. Higher end, there is ZBroz, Shock Therapy, RtPro, and a host of others.

Re: Rear suspension

You'll like them. But you'll realize you could have done the same thing DIY for half price.

Re: Rear suspension

Tenders are supposed to be collapsed at normal riding conditions. Their purpose is to keep the Springs seated and in proper position when the suspension goes full extended and you're airborne. The RZR Aid springs convert you to a semi dual-rate system without divider rings, same as the RtPro setup.
