I have a 2008 700 with stock resi shocks. Added 4 seat cage and I'm bottoming out with all the extra weight and my rear wheels r pitched. Iv herd that the spring alone can be changed out. Who sells em and also do u have to revalve the stock resi shocks due to the different springs??? Pls help thanks.

Race Tech might be able to help you out with rebuilding your shocks. They are located in Calif.

I just had mine done by Suspension By Jake he revalved them and he only charges $125 per shock which includes new oil and shims, he can change your spring rate if needed. I have a 06 660 with a bed delete 4 seat cage so we aren't changing springs yet. Going to take it out next weekend to see how it works.

I think he put 400# on them....but with the valving combined (spring rate is only for ride height) it rides awesome, hardly ever bucks.

the regular shocks are only a spring....so you adding a valves shock to it...which is what the SE shocks are.

Get the SE shocks redone

not if the valving is correct :)

just putting stiffer springs is NOT correct....I see ALOT of people do this on dirtbikes and rides like shiat.

Look at the link I provided and give me your honest opinion. For the money, I think this is the way to go for 4-seaters.

i figure the stock springs are not stiff enough for two extra passengers
