Default Suspension too soft? Looking to upgrade? Look here

Front
If looking for better front shocks on a budget, newer, progressive banshee fronts are an upgrade. Works provides good aftermarket shocks if wanting budget aftermarket. Any 450 shock is not recommended as they are longer and will cause the ball joints to bind.

Rear
If looking for a good rear shock, works is also a good choice. If on a budget, a banshee rear or 01 raptor shock is a good upgrade. A banshee shock will require the airbox to be modded for the reservoir. A raptor shock is slightly longer so will lift the back end a couple inches. The raptor is recommended for a heavier person. Only 01 raptor rears will work as it has a remote reservoir.

Also if you want the rear end lifted a little but want the banshee shock for whatever reason, the banshee dog bone put into the j-arm will raise the rear end a little over an inch, but get an extra set of hands to work it into place. Just thought I'd add it lol.

If swingarm is stock length, go with a banshee shock. If you don't want a modded air box, 2001 raptor 660.

14.5" works shocks up front, 2001 raptor 660 shock in the rear with a Raptor 350 shock linkage. Warrior shock linkage has crappy geometry.
