Universal Shocks..

anybody looking to do a cheap shock set up this is what i have done



My service manager gave me his stock Yfz450 shocks


They will mnt up to the front of the rhino with little mod to the upper shock mnt, i had to make a small spacer to put under the oem (yfz) spring to gain some ground clearance loss... i have test road this, and it rides %100 better....soaks up alot... smooth ride..

What i am going to do tomarrow is put my stock shocks on the back of the rhino to soften up the rear.. not sure how thats going to work out tho...

I am going to test ride it sunday am and adjust high/low and the damping on the front shocks..

I will keep ya posted

well i was looking at the rear shocks and had the stock front in my had... yupper there alot wider at the eyelets .


well its been really nice at my house like into the 50's and i wanted to take my rhino up the mountian to test the shocks out and fine tune the adjustments...well i got to the top of the mnt and got my truck stuck in 2 foot of snow!!! and we spent the day running in 10-12" of snow...so the whole shock thing will have to wait till the snow melts on the mountian


but there is a HUGH diffrence on how it rides... you can floor board it threw the woops on the trails....the rebound on the rear shocks it way to hard..it starts to pogo a little
