I put Fox air shocks on my prowler front and rear gained travel as well as an excellent ride. They handle jumps like a dune buggy very soft landing and work great on hard surfaces and woopty doos, There is a guy selling these new left overs on Ebay for 149.00 each, a steel I think plus they look cool on anything.

I forgot to tell you it may take a few times filling them with nitrogen to get the ride the way you want it I had to change mine three times at $65 a fill to get it the way I wanted it. Even then my rear cv's made noise for a few miles untill they got used to a new angle. But I have never been happier.

I have the Fox 2.0 air shocks on the rear of my Prowler and they work great but I had to fab new mounts. Can you take some pictures of the front and rear of yours so we can see the mounts? What size did you go with?

Thanks

Rear shocks use the stock location on the bottom and I made mounts for the top.
As you can see the front took a bit longer and the shocks are 2.0 I have limit straps to keep from extending to far. and 420lbs in each shock. It seemed like I needed more nitrogen for two riders and less for one but to expensive to change all the time so I leave with more pressure. It took three hours to install new shocks and mounts. The best thing I ever did
