Wanted to make this info it's own thread & sticky it study

Factory Settings ...

Front Compression - 10 Clicks Out
Front Rebound - 10 Clicks Out
Rear Compression - 7 Clicks Out
Rear Rebound - 12 Clicks Out

I recommend 5 clicks out on Rear Rebound & 9 clicks out on the Front Compression, the other 2 are the same. Then you can give her hell!!! lol

Hope this is not out of place in this thread. I have 07 660 Sport Edition- the title sounds like it applies to me. I have not been able to find info on how the Sport differs from base Rhino;can anyone help me with that?

I have seen a lot of posts about needing to upgrade Rhino suspension, but this makes me wonder if the Sport suspension is considered better than normal Rhinos (maybe even good)?

Are there any quick clues to tell if my shocks are stock? I know the PO modded my ride with K&N intake, horribly loud exhaust and a really stupid but very expensive sat radio w monster amp, so I suspect there are plenty of other mods as well.

The sport edition shocks will have external resivoirs at the top of the shocks,and screws at the top and bottom to adjust compression and rebound.alot better shocks than regular rhino shocks!!

I believe so. Looked to be the same to me. Look it up in your owners manual to see how to adjust, they have marks on them for the factory settings. You can go said number of clicks softer or firmer. I started with the softest settings and I'm working my way up as I ride when I need to firm it up a little. These are nice shocks.

I adjusted them the way the original post shows but I haven't had a chance to ride it yet, probably tomorrow after work. I do bottom out quite a bit with the fronts.

Followed the instructions,going on a ride next weekend I found my settings were all over the place somebody must have been trying to tune it by trial and error,(used).

I followed James recommendation and the handling was more stable with less rear end kicking up over jumps. Very Happy
