PostSubject: Shock suggestions? 700 rhino   Tue Nov 12, 2013 9:22 pm

Went for a ride yesterday with a friend who has 800 Rzr H.O., after spending 3 hours of the day catching up(and I mean rolling around to find him with engine turned off and waiting catching up) I decided to talk to James. My stock 12 Rhino is going to see a new sheave:cheers: , cdi, and skid plates in the coming weeks. I have always liked the looks of the maxxis bighorns, so after I get some miles in stock tires, I foresee a new set of those. 

My question is ... What is a good option for shocks that won't break the bank?

Seeing some posts about Teryx shocks being an affordable upgrade, but are there any other good options out there(affordable).  Have looked at a lot of the big name own shocks and wow!Shocked

You can order a set of custom valved and sprung Elkas stage 1 for under $ 1k worth every penny too! Almost made me wish I had spent another $1k for the stage4 like James after seeing difference in my stock vs stage 1 Elkas I can only imagine the difference in mine vs stage4.

yeah but we dont all live in the flat openness of hippyville where laws are tight and morals are loose and people that love Elton John music and dress like him roam the streets in packs.

Here in the midwest long travel wont work on a lot of peoples trails.
