RZR 1000 XP

I am torn, my tender springs are shot, so I either need to replace with new or just go with new duel rate springs from shock therapy. I am putting 32's for my next weekend and want to see if anyone has done either and what they prefer.

2017 RZR XP4 1000 turbo

I have put new tender springs on my XP Pro. I can tell you it has made a world of difference in the ride and was able to get back my ride heights. There are a lot of people that swear by the full dual rate kites but I'm not sure if it's worth the extra money.

2019 Polaris General 4

I did shock therepy on my General. I am one that swears that the cost is worth it. Shocks will be in my top 3 mods from this point forward on any machine I get. I will say that the General shocks are decent Fox 2.0, but may not be as good as some shock packages that come standard on many of the RZR models. I cant say with 100% confidence it will make the same level of difference on your machine versus the General.

Polaris Turbo S Velocity XP4

Definitely a dual rate setup. A tender kit doesn’t improve ride quality and only raises your ride height. What model do you have? Give us a call if you looking for a spring kit, currently we are giving 10% off the cost of a spring kit when installing with our PSM setup (Rebuild/Revalve). I’d advise against the company you are looking at. We have seen multiple customers with shock body damage and setups that run way too soft of spring rates, requiring extensive preload amounts.
