The bilsteins aren't a piggy back, but they have a nitrogen reservoir in the top of the shock, so they perform just as well as a piggyback style. The only difference is that it isn't on the outside in a seperate can..

I would put my money on the bilsteins any day of the week, for stock replacements. They are very economically priced, and work awesome!

We have them in stock too..

Good luck!

in my mind there are only three shocks to choose from king fox bilsteins. the reason that i say this is how many trophy trucks run w.e.r. or elkas or afco or radflo. theese are the guys with the deep pockets and put the shocks through the test time and time again.

wers, elka, etc are companies that are in the sport atv / utv industry, they make shocks for these machines because thats what they do.

some of them dabble in the industry but its not their main focus.

I have Bilsteins on my truck and love them. But I can replace those Bilsteins cheaper than buying them for my Rhino. Again, you need to buy what your budget and marraige can afford. If your going to pound woops all day invest in them, if you are a casual rider like most look at a cheaper alternative.

Are you saying these progressive 425s are better then the sport resi's but not quite as good as bilsteins? If their better then sport resi's then i'll probably get them cause I thought the sport resi's were pretty nice.

yea and walker evans was a trophy truck driver. so that means he cant have any idea what he is doing on a atv. the point is that king fox bilstein have been tested and proven and the part are really easy to get.

walker evans are a HUGE player in the utv shock market, we sell more sets of those shocks then anyone else, plus the guy in the rzr just won the king of the hammers race for the 2nd year in a row with an off the wall xmf kit w/ walker evans.....
