Fox Shocks Problem On 4 Seater Rhino Help Me Plz

Recommended Posts

I have a 4 seater rhino that i just bought it has 2.0 remote resevoir shocks in the front and the back with coil overs. the coils are a little more then 50% stiff. and it saggs and bottoms out all the time. When I put 4 ppl in it it saggs ridicoulously low and bottoms out. and when i only have 2 ppl in the front it bottoms out sometimes too. i put 200lbs of nitrogen in them and still no help. Any suggestions??

I had the same shocks and I added 450lbs springs and it took care of all those problems. I sold the shocks to my friend but we put the stock rated spring back in his ride, so we still have those the 450lbs springs. Let me know if you are interested you can have them for $125.00 and they are powter coated blue.

They are real simple to put on. And you only will need 2 of them, you will only wanna do the rear's...

These are stock replacement fox shocks right? If they are I have the springs you need.

so you think i should try and swith them or just buy more 400lbs for the back? cuz i thought they might have had the 400's in the front for jumping or something.

See how it does, you may need 450's in the back for a 4 seater, but drive it and see. It will be night and day difference with the 400's outta the front and where they are supposed to be. :D

You will need a spanner wrench. But you should be able to just swap the front shocks to the back with just a 14mm and a 17mm wrench. Wow once you do that it should ride wayyyyyyyyyyyyy better.

Front to rear shocks are different. The rears have a longer bottom shaft of the shock to clear the axles...

Bilstiens get away with it because they run the rears upside down i believe?
