Which one? I have 6
Got a 18 SW LTX-DX And want to upgrade shocks. Looking for some recommendations from people who have done this already.
Fronts would like to have compression & rebound adjustments
Rear shocks are not too bad but I definitely need a heavier rate spring on that front skid shock. Would also like to lower the sled as much as possible, for lower COG. There is not a lot of transfer on these sleds, but I prefer a flat handling trail cruiser.
Suggestions, recommendations ?

Shocks off a ZR 9000 RR would be one of the best deals going as far as price.

I found in Ontario the qs3 from Arctic cat where the best price from a 2019 zr9000. I just bought one for the back of my 2020 ltx se. Going to try the stock fronts out first before I decide to replace them.

looks like when you piece it all together with the springs, it’s about $425USD plus shipping.

I am really satisfied of my ELKA stage5. Lots of adjustments even to much sometimes.... ;-)
