If your getting them for $400 a set you can't go wrong with them!

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

foxs

$400 for all 4 shocks, I've heard that they weren't all that they're cracked up to be, not too many good reports, what have u heard?...standard travel shocks for the family 4 seater/duneride...will they cure the "bucking blues"?

They will be an improvement over the stockers for sure! Hell, for $400 for all 4, sell them on Ebay!

I had them for 1 week... Then I returned them. They suck....BAD. I am sure properly set up they are fine... But right out of the box for a stock Rhino they suck.... Any shock is good if it is set up properly.

Before anybody gets upset... I am talking about a stock suspension Rhino. I am sure when they are set up properly for LT they are fine...

But for that price.... Buy them and sale them on ebay.

Truer words have yet to be spoken.
With springs and shocks, it's all about the spring rate and shock valving.

Fox Shocks are really good shocks! The reason they get a bad rap on UTV's is they haven't been valved correctly. For $400.00 you can't go wrong even if you have to invest a little to get them setup right your still money ahead. We can revalve them or HRT does it also. Buy them or PM me where I can buy them.

Very true, only a few kits with FOX shocks are dialed in when you get thier kits.

HRT Motorsports and Magnum Offroad have there Fox shocks setup for there kits

HRT can also get you setup valved for stock suspension.
