DOES ANY ONE HAVE THE LSR MTS +3 SUSPENSION KIT ON THEIR RHINO. DID IT COME WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEEDED TO PUT IT ON AND HOW E-Z WAS THE INSTALL? ANY IMPUT WOULD BE GREAT I'M THINKING OF GETTING THIS KIT AND HAVING MY PIGGIE BACK SHOCKS THAT CAME STOCK ON MY RHINO REVALVED BY TCS TO WORK WITH IT.

they come with everything you need, minus the shocks, and tools. There is a very detailed instructions provided, and they even outline what tools you need. If you are using the std axle kit, you will need a vice, dead blow hammer, and external snap ring pliers to do the cv's, and get plenty of rags and latex gloves, as its a messy job.

You will need to get some moly cv grease, and some gear oil to top of your diffs.

I do not have the kit but I have done lots of research .......

I think it is a great kit ..... I do have one recomendation .....
Sale those Sport Piggybacks .... I hear they go for around $ 600.00 and buy the Bilstein Shocks that were designed for the kit ..... From what I hear you can not beat the ride of the suspension when used with the Bilstein Shocks ...... they have really been dialed in specially for that kit ....

IMHO .......The amount of money that you are going to save by revalveing your shocks wont be worth it ......

i would second that opinion.. 1250 for bilsteins.. already done right! Bolt them on and rip.... i can say that you will be really lucky if TCS hits the nail on the head the first go around..

Im confused, I was thinking of going with the plus 3 kit, but if you still need to buy shocks anyways yur still spending 2k roughly on shocks. So that would be 4k. But if you get a 6" kit it would only be a grand more?. Is it worth it or not.

Well, retail the +3 is $2200 and the recommended Bilsteins retail for $1250. So retail, youre at $3450, but Im sure you can get a little better deal than that. So depending on what pricing you end up with, you could end up around $1500 to $1800 below +6 pricing.......

Are the bilsteins comparable to kings, elka's, or any of the others?...The reason I ask is that, I really like to play w/ my suspension settings, my dirtbike is set up for track which is valved & springed to my exact weight & riding style, and it is a night & day difference over stock. If Im going to do this, I just dont want to scew it up.

The Bilsteins are FAR better than Kings or Fox (For the Rhino)...... The only adjustment they have is preload ...... but you can revalve them .... Although it shouldnt be necessary if you get them with the LSR +3 kit ..... Thanks to many hours or actually days of work by Greg at LSR the Bilsteins are dialed in perfect for the MTS kit ...... From what I hear you will not be disapointed .....

Whats cool with the bilsteins is that you can use them now with your stock suspension and again when you have the money to upgrade to the LSR +3. Thats what I did and it was a night and day difference between stock and bilsteins. And from there it will only get better with the LSR+3 when I buy it.
