I would go with a shop or recommendation from someone who has tried the springs and like them.

There are so many better deals out there, but i have learned my lesson with the R&D and basically its less expensive if someone else does it first.

Ya I agree with Glamisprowler. Those springs will lift you car but they are hard as a rock. I ran them on a honda rincon with 28" 589s it rode hard but could get thru some deep mud.

As I have said before you pay more for a rollcage and suspension parts for a utv than my drag car that I had. As long as people keep buying the overpriced utv parts the higher the prices will be.

joes I couldnt agree more with you on that. The last time I priced a cage for a drag car it was about half the price for chromoly that some want for mild steel UTV cage. I was just saying Ive used those springs and there just to stiff. The QA-1 springs from Summit would be a better choice.

Dont you have an XTZ the shock are not the same as an XTX? Also I have bought some of the overpriced stuff and I dont like the fit and quality of the stuff and because I dont want to be attacked I wont say what I bought and from who. People need to NOT buy the overpriced stuff and you will see the prices come down. BOSTON TEA PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I am looking for a good performing spring and shock. ANd I know I have overpayed in the past for sure.

I ran Walkereven shocks on my Rhino and I still do today. They have been rebuilt and revalved. They work great, my wife goes right through the whoops with out slowing down. That was the goal. These shocks are my favorite I have used so far. I have gone big jumping with these shocks and no issues. Four season now on these shocks.

I currently run Fox shocks on my Arctic Cat. The fox shocks were much less exspenive than the Walker Evans. And I like the three different adjustments of the Fox shocks and in the end they should do much better for me. I run a 350 lb spring in the fox shocks.

I would call Mike at Prestige or Chris at Benchmark, they seem to know how to set up a suspension system for the Utv's that is as good as you can get.

On that ebay add is the $150.95 for a set of four or two or each corner. I didnt see it specified.

my 2 cents
