2001-2003 I believe and I'm not completely sure but I think you have to do something to the airbox?

Not a direct fit.
2001 raptor 660 rear only
Go for a banshee shock.
You only have to mod the air box for that.

Any year banshee but you have to mod the air box. Look in the tutorial section for how to do it.

To get the raptor 660 shock to work ok takes a lot of playing around with linkages and to make it work properly involves a custom linkage. The banshee shock works well with the stock linkage and only involves the modded airbox. Both ways will involve a new spring for your weight imo, since both the 660 and banshee shocks have the same (or very close) spring rates.
