PostSubject: Look for new shocks   Mon Jun 20, 2016 8:40 pm

Okay I am in the market to make the 4 seat highlifter ride smoother. I know most of you are going to say call smoothride but I just want to know what else is out there. Tim did my jagged x and it did improve the ride quality but dad's 2015 RZR 1000 rode better. I am considering shock therapy but have not made my mind up. Tim uses only one spring where most everyone else uses a dual rate system to help with a more plush ride. Okay enough jabbering I want to hear what others might have to say.

I was actually looking at shock therapy just a second ago. There dual rate springs for my xp 900 is around $800. I know what you mean about the 2015 -2016 rzr 1000 they ride smooth. After this past weekend I am seriously looking into them my self.

Good Luck Hope you get some good input.

Try to pick up a set of fox shocks off a turbo. The ride is great.

I know someone who has a set of Turbo Fox shocks for sale. If interested let me know and I will find out his price. He hasn't listed them yet. They have less than 100 miles on them.

Here is the deal. Smooth Ride does more then just springs. He re-valve's your shocks.

Lol. I will say I had a lot more body roll with plusher ride. I put the sway bar back on on Friday and it rode great. Now I just need to increase the width for better stability. Probably going portals. I haven't made my mind up yet

Thats why I wont run anything but Smooth Ride built shocks. No body roll, no sway bar and tons of flex. And if you dont like it, he'll fix it. He wants you there to ride the buggy so you can tell him what you want. One size does not fit all.

With out question. If you don't like it Tim will work with you. He is the answer to our east coast needs when it comes to shocks.
