I put fox 2.0 shocks and springs on my rzr $1000 and it was the best mod I ever did for it. It felt like I doubled the amount of suspension I had. I am not sure if just a shock alone with out matched springs will be as effective. Walker Evans are one of the best shocks made but for that kind of money they should include springs IMO.

Hey @soapy, I just wanted to let you know that both the prices listed for the monotube and position sensitive adjustable shocks do include springs.

I will be looking onto the WE shocks since they do include springs.

I had a Kawasaki Teryx LE model, which came with upgraded shocks, and it rode noticeably better than the Pioneer. The Teryx suspension was very close to the Pioneer in design and travel so I am assuming the upgraded shocks are what made the difference.

Therefore, even though my Pioneer was purchased primarily for utility work, I am seriously considering upgrading the shocks. Yes this seems like a pricey update, and somewhat of an overkill for a utility machine, but my Pioneer does see some recreation usage too.

My usage is strictly in desert terrain, and in that application there are two noticeable deficiencies in the Pioneer, tires & suspension. I immediately upgraded the tires so it looks like the shocks are next. Besides, even with those two upgrades I will probably still have less in it than I would if I had bought another brand.

I hear Walker Evans are good shocks and I may get them now if I can find them at a discount, but if not I may wait until King and Fox come out with theirs before I make my final decision. Hopefully it isn't too much longer.

my buddy has an upgraded set on his tyrex im going to see what brand they are tomorrow but he doesnt have much flex and the ride isn't as good as the pioneer. we pulled one side up on a tree stump and there was only 3 inches difference in the front tires with 1 tire floating

Qualt. I'm thinking of upgrading at least my fronts and then backs down the road. I was heavily considering these, but... Nothing is selling these to me though. Price is too high. They don't keep stock on hand, and I was told 1 1/2 weeks for turn around.

I think your idea of waiting for now is the best route. Maybe I'll drop Fox a line and see if they have any thoughts on hooking up the Pioneer.
