So pitting up where I left of with the Shock Therapy Springs a vital part of the suspension is the sway bar setup. For years I've been of the mindset that with the type of riding I do having sway bars is a hindrance. I always unhooked or removed them completely as I wanted as much articulation as possible.

However, when I bought the new XPT4 I decided to leave both the front & rear hooked up to see how it would do. First trip to Windrock the suspension was completely stock. I was very impressed with the stock suspension right from the start. The ride quality was good and it cornered like it was on rails. Articulation was ok and only noticed in a few spots where the sway bars were limiting.

Second trip out I has installed the ST and WE links on the rear. For those unfamiliar with the WE links they are basically small shocks that replace the hard sway bar links. They allow 1.5" of travel before compressing and locking up and acting like a solid link.  Link for more info: Walker Evans Links

The ride quality was excellent and articulation improved but we did not do anything very technical to really test them. I did notice more body roll with high speed cornering.

Third trip out I had the WE links on all four corners. We rode some very technical trails and I was very impressed as to how well the front & rear articulated with the WE links. They allow a lot of articulation while still limiting body roll to some extent. It is not like having hard links but much better than unhooking the sways bars. The body roll during high speed cornering is manageable.

Here is a pic from Waldens Ridge coming off the last ledge, you can see the front articulation working.

So in conclusion for my style of riding (mostly slow technical) they fit the bill very well and are worth the $$. Presently they only list them for the rear, I had the 1st set in production for the front but they should be available shortly if anyone is interested.

I have been using them for the last 3 rides and like mine. I had one collapse after one ride and they sent me a new pair and havent had another issue.
