Air Shocks

I did a search in the forum but could not find it. I am wondering if anyone on here as put straight air shocks on the rear. I have seen the kits for an assist setup.

I am putting in a rear seat and cage so I will need some help in the rear. I have heard about the progressive but if you dont have people in there its rough riding in the rear.

Maybe but it is not clear to me that is true so I would suggest you give the link to your kit...!

I'm also looking at that system also. But I was also thinking about a car or truck air shock you could buy at your local auto shop. Not really sure if there would be a cost savings but I was looking at 2 shocks verse 4 shocks.

My kit uses automotive shocks. They will not support the Rhino by themselves. I tried.
On a car or truck, they are mounted on a 90 degree angle to the axle and in the Rhino they are mounted inboard which adds alot more preassure. Also, by using them with the factory shocks you still have the option of adjusting both sets.
Another benifit is that the stress on your shock mounts is greatly reduced(people do bend the factory shock mounts without this kit).

Your making a great sales pitch!! I was already looking at your kit, thats why I started thinking about going with straight air shocks. I think before its all over I will be owning your set up.......lol

Just a thought.

When I come back from the dunes in April, expect an order from me. I just bought this Rhino and I think I have already spent a little less than $2000 for stuff I think that it needed.
