Best replacement shocks?

I'm going to be buying some replacement shocks soon, and i'm wondering which ones would be the best to get. I mostly trail ride and some dessert with little jumps here and there. I'm kinda thinking the ishock f-8 or the bilstiens. The bilstiens aren't piggyback style so will the ride be as good as some of the piggyback style ones?

bilstiens or Walker Evans seem to be the most tested here for stock replacement and both get good reviews. I went WERS with stock suspension and it was night and day.

I guess it may come down to the best deal when i'm ready. I rode my buddy's sport rhino today and I couldn't believe the difference between the 2 of them.

Whats your budget?

I went with the Progressive 425 on all four for under 600.00 Very impressed compared to the stock shock.

Everything seems to be around $1,400. So I was going to probably buy the rear first and then get the fronts later. Maybe i'll go check out the progressives now. Do they ride as good as the stock sport suspension?

If you have the sport Fox shocks with reses now they won't compare. Mine had a standard shock and the progessives was a huge improvement. You can adjust them more and they offer a heavy duty for the four seaters too.
