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

hey fellow gear heads im a new guy to the art of owning a joyner, had it for a while now but haveing issues with things purly because im sure the springs are so hard that its rattling to death. ive been reading a lot about this and im in the same boat, i have to change the suspension asap and im not looking to spend much either but those air shocks sound like a good replacemnt if the do well for hard pack and rough terrain where did you find the right fornts ansd rears for yours charlie ???

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
