Ya, me too. The stock 650 H1 shock/springs are just too weak. 2" inside spring diameter makes it impossible to find good replacement springs. Still thinking some XTZ's may do the trick.

Still looking at AFCO for springs, only problem/concern I have is that the stock shock tabs are weak!

I really need an alternative to mine, too. But to spend another 1200 to 1800 bucks on shocks, is hard to swallow. Looking for some used XTZ front shocks to replace the tiny ones on my XT. Even with new 100# plus springs, it won't support the plow. It nose dives 3" when raising the blade. When the blade is snow packed, its real bad.

Mine will drop with the plow weight, but not to bad all things considered!

after several 70-100 mile rides in the desert I think I need to upgrade shock also , damn desert beats the hell out of you and the machine LOL

yesterdays ride was a 90 mile loop through mostly rock garden stiff

OH and then this ... got back from the shower [use the RV parks as it's bigger than the trailers] as was sitting in the trailer , neighbor starts banging on the wall of the trailer and says Hey Gary get out here .. a guy from across the RV park was driving back into the park from the bar ... yup you guessed it idiot drives smack dab into the front center of my truck .. cops hauled him away as DUI , he goes to jail and starts a big hubbub there smacks an officer so now he has an additional heavy duty charge .. find out he has a suspended lic. for DUI and can't see well either ..... MONDAYS hate them lol

And then you're out a pulling rig until the repairs are done.
