Re: EIBACH springs for turbo s

I have these stage II and happy with them as I had lost so much ride height with he weight I added to my 2018 Turbo S. then stock springs were significantly bound up. Overall I would say their is a small improvement with the Stage II and I now have the car at stock height.

Re: EIBACH springs for turbo s

I went with Shock Therapy Dual Rate Spring kit (DRS) 2018 Polaris XP Turbo S 2 seat. That was a huge improvement over stock. I do mostly duning, when I made the change I left it comfort mode the whole ride. Before I would HAVE to put it into sport mode. Just my 2 cents.

Please do report back on how you like the kit. I have a 2019 XP S and am leaning towards the kit when my springs start to sag (which sounds lIke ito won't take long). I have run lots of Eibach springs only dirt bikes over the years and am hopeful they make a great RZR spring as well.

Thatís what worries me. I like that in stock form that comfort mode is nice and soft. When I did the shock therapy spring package it basically took comfort mode away. Ride was very stiff over the slow stuff and I just hated the ride. How much preload was required to get the suggested ride height?

I first installed the springs but, was not enough for ride height. I toke it out trail riding to work the springs in. I then set the per load to stock ride height. You can add a little more per load which will put you into the upper spring longer but, do not adjust the inter double rings. These double rings will put you into the lower spring to soon if not adjusted right. You might need to readjust these rings as they might be to low.

Re: EIBACH springs for turbo s

so I got the eibach stage 2 installed, we took it to the rubicon this weekend.. its a whole new animal.. all 3 modes work perfectly. with the new springs the shocks can now work as they were designed to. comfort mode is way better then before, it just eats up the trail. we are going to hit some trails this weekend, then some high speed desert running in a few weekends. I will let you know it goes with that.. but I am very impressed with this set up...

I anticipated reading a great review as Eibach is on point with their stage 2 setups! Nothing but great feedback across all RZR models.

4 or 2 seater? How much preload did it take to get to the 16-16.5 ground clearance?
