Can I do this?

Can I put mts shocks on stock rhino now? Then later on put a +3 mts on?
Because I want to get some better shocks now, but don't want to get shocks that won't work the +3 mts. I would like to know what the pro and cons of doing this would be.

Thanks

Yes the MTS kit uses stock length shocks.

I shouldn't probably speak up on this topic since I have not experience. But I thought that I would probably do just the opposite. Get one of the mids that use the stock shocks, and upgrade the shocks later.
I know people say you should just go with the whole setup at once, but with me it's always the money issue... (I can turn coal into diamonds sometimes)

That will work out fine. The only that MIGHT need to change is valving and stuff on the shocks when you change to MTS... Good luck

I would get some Billsteins. They are set up right of the box perfect for stock or the LSR MTS Kit. The WERS also work better for both.

Get the shocks now and you may not even want the MTS Kit later. The shocks are a huge improvement.

Mike have you ever heard anything bad about the bilsteins??? I have a buddy that was running a track by his house and in a left hand turn corner his left rear shock came apart at the bottom where it was crimped together. Has anyone else ever seen this happen?? It cause him to roll like 3 times.

Never heard of that myself. and I disagree that they are correct out of the box. it all depends on your ride, mine were not even remotely close to being correct.

I have never heard anything bad about the Billsteins until now. That is a first. I have also never heard anything bad about the WERS.

Roger,

You say the Billsteins were not good right out of the box. Was that for a MTS Kit or stock suspension?
