Thanks M R, I'm going to check out some options available with the sport shocks. Sounds like you're air borne as much as you have all 4 on the ground. Most areas I ride would be hard to gain that type of speed. You'd end up over a cliff ledge or rapped around a tree, not my kind of a day for a good time.

even at slow speeds you still might bottom out I'm running 27 inch mud lites and I was able to stand on the front bumper and pull the roll bar enough to make the tire push up the hood...with the little longer a-arms it allows a lot of leverage.....either way you're going to like the new ride

Some different springs on the SE shocks should fix that though right.

Thanks for the input. Did you have to shave the fenders any? I'm going to be running 27X14's on this build. I'm thinking putting a two inch lift on the shocks which will give me some more body lift/clearance. What do you think?

I've got a call into iShock on the shock rebuild or re-spring the SE shock. I'll post what I find if you're interested, Kevin. I want this bike ready for Moab this spring.

If I don't end up selling the Rhino and getting a Poolaris like everyone else by next summer I will be putting on mid travel.  I too was thinking about putting my 2" lift back on when I do it.  I will be very interested in how your setup turns out.  I am already 27x10x14's all the way around but I am thinking I may run a 15" wheel with less backspacing and a 215/75/R15 truck tire if I go with mid travel to narrow it back up a little bit but keep my travel.

Off the subject, but my 06/450 has never left me stranded in all the years I've had it. And out here in Wyoming you don't see many other riders if any depending on where you ride. I'm pretty much a solo rider and I want something that's going to get me home when I'm 30-40 miles from base. I've heard to many stories about the Polaris machines. That's why I bought this almost new Rhino 700, I believe in them, and willing to spend the $$ to make the bike the way I want it. Each to their own.

I installed some teryx sport shocks on all 4 corners with some custom brackets on the rear a-arm mounts and have no issues but with out them or a lift you will have to trim ur fenders

I used some teryx shocks they where cheaper and with the longer shock they work great also have no issue with them being stiff due to the longer a-arms

Right now I get enough flex out of mine to rub the bottom of my rear fenders now and sometimes on the front floorboards where my aluminum protectors are.  Do those teryx shocks allow for a pretty cush ride.

yes..mine are the sport ones and with the +3 they ride great... without it they are stiff at first...^ that is why I did the mts I wore all the paint off the inner fender..lol

I did move the shock mounts on the a-arms via a bolt on bracket cause the axel was hitting the frame on the passenger side and I wanted them right side up

Do you have some pics of yours with the mts and teryx shocks.

Pulled the trigger on the LSR Mid-Travel. Talked with iShock's tech about respringing or reworking the sports shocks and iShock thinks the sport shocks should work just fine for the type of riding style I do. The LSR MTS was designed to perform with the factor shock. They said there is plenty of travel in the sport shock and if you're not hitting big air there should be no reason to rebuild/respring the shocks. They can & will if needed. I was suprised iShock didn't try and push after market shocks or a rebuild on my sport shocks, they were very confident the sport stockers would work just fine.  Dancing Banana

sounds awesome. can't wait to see this. I thought that a MTS would be great. I'm just nervous about going wider. haha even though our 900xp ranger gets around good.

If I could get a break in the friggin cold (deep-freeze) weather that's set in here, I've got a back log of Hot Rod parts from JBS to get started with. Can't warm the garage up enough when the temps are hovering in the single > double sub zero temps. Wind chill today was (-35) degrees. I'll try to do some pic & write up as I move through the build. Right now the bike is stripped down just waiting for me to get started.

with the mts suspension it also moves the tires forward 1" and backward 1".. you can see I have a little over 1/4" clearance between the bolt head and axle

lots of room





the bracket is bolted on and a little tack weld so it can be removed if I ever decide too sell it





I use 1/4" plate to make the brackets
