That is an awesome deal...

I would try them as-is and see what you get...

Mine are working fairly well with +3.5" a-arms...with 5/2 wheels

I would say if you max the pre-load and the compression and still need more...

You likely need stiffer springs AND stiffer compression valving...

So you really need to fully evaluate them first....then decide how much stiffer you want them...

I'll bet you are ahead in the long run sending them to iShock to have both done...the package deal will be cheaper and less hassle and better results...

The only thing is you will need to know EXACTLY what to tell them so they will know what springs and vavle settings to put in them...

Free advice on the internet is never worth the price you pay for it in the end...

This is some info from the BRP Forum .......

http://www.blackrhinoperformance.net...pic.php?t=8595

iShock is now offering a rebuild service for the stock Rhino Sport Shocks, the ones with reservoirs. They revalve and repring them. From what I've heard, it makes a huge difference. I guess those shocks aren't all that bad, and are pretty decent with just a little bit of help.

They charge $199 a pair for the service.

You can download a service request form here: http://www.hydrodynamicsusa.com/dl/S2%20Form.pdf
