has anyone ever done a shock spring swap with rzr springs on a rhino shock??



my rhinos front shocks are sagging bad and i have the factory springs off my rzr just collecting dust. so i was thinking about putting the rear rzr springs on the front of the rhino.

give me some feedback guys!!!

Bush, It can be done but not without a spring-compessor. Todd sells one I'm pretty sure. I tried several times with some home-built stuff but could not get the spring compressed enough to get the retaining ring off.i

You could likely rent the spring compressors from an auto parts store or tool rental shop. The ones used to put shocks on McPherson-strut suspensions should work...

You can get the RZR with the strut tool but not Rhino.

I am pretty sure they won't fit and if they did, they would not have enough spring rate for the Rhino.

They sag bad on the RZR

i changed the stock springs on the rzr to high lifter springs and rented the tool from advance auto. only takes about 5 min to change each spring.

i know the front rzr springs are week but the rear rzr springs have to be stronger than the rhinos front springs.

i think i will rent the tool again and try to do the swap. i ant got anything to lose.
