shock options

Recommended Posts

I know its been talked about before , but after not using the trooper in 2 years I am going to drag it out of storage. Are there other options for shocks out there not any type of take offs from other utvs that can be adapted to the front ? I will have to rebuild the trailing arm mounts, mount arms in double sheer and new bolts. May halso have to replace rear spindle bolts.And diff upgrades But really want to upgrade shock since ride quality is bad.

Im playing with fox air shocks in the front of mine,have but have not tested fox airs for the rear also...while not cheap,so far the Elka stage 4s on Trevors demo trooper at mudslingers alberta are the nicest Ive driven...and they are bolt in and user/ride style adjustable

My front shocks are fox 8.5 travel I believe 2.0 series I got the from poly performance I had spacers made to put in the existing shock mount hole on the troops cause the bolt size for the fox shocks and factory shocks is different and no issues I think my pressure is 325-350 the rear is race runner Radflo air shock 2.5 10" travel pressure 375-400 I believe I had spacers made for those as well was cheap so I could use the bolt that fit the shock right and would fit the frame. I run limit straps all 4 corners without my toolbox and me I sit about 14" off the ground overall love it the ride is so much better flexs awesome I keep mine in the softer side lots slow riding for me

Ok thanks I'm looking in to all options even building new mounts to use a completely custom set up I'm kind of a jimmy rigger to make whatever work :-)

Has anyone tried using rzr 800 rear shocks for the front they are not a 1/2" shorter but don't think they would have a stiff enough spring, I've been playing with the idea of using shocks from a dirt bike if I can find one with the right length and close to decent spring rate cause it's a lot cheaper

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper computer programmer

      There is a company I ran across at the CES trade show this year. They make a programmer that should be able to program the Troopers computer. About $300. The Trooper s computer is a standard Bosch car computer. The only differance is that it is programed for the Trooper. The programmer will program most any car or truck so it should work. The company could probably help is finding which program the computer uses and assist finding out which computer pins to hook to. This programmer will program all aspects of the tuning including things like Pulse width tables, VE tables, Timing tables, prime pulse width, crank pulse width, after start pulse width, warmup pulse width, enrichment pulse widths, acceleration pulse widths. rev limit and more.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.

    • Joyner Trooper Power Steering

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU. It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!
