Im sure they will work but are they the same as the 08 700 resies ?I dont want to buy 07 660 stock resies for 400 bucks and have them be a inch shorter than the 08's and make my rhino sit lower than it does now.I allready have sag in the rear....Any help? does anyone know this info...thanks.

The difference in suspension between the 660's on 700's are the axles... not the arms or shocks, they are the same.

I have no personal experience on this issue.... but I think that I have read a somehwere on the forums that the 2008 shocks are a little shorther than previous years.... I am not sure if that is true or not. But they will work and fit on your Rhino....

I did a search for you over on the BRP forum and this is what I found ....

for 400 bucks you cant go wrong... thats a pretty good deal on em. And theres more adjustability over stockers so you can help with the saging problem...
