Anything is a huge difference with +2 arms, as for shocks the warrior is a bigger difference than the rap350. Stock warrior shocks were garbage while the rappy has dualrates stock. Any aftermarket suspension components will give you a much better ride when they are built and tuned to your specs.

Yes if the shocks are built for your weight and riding style. If you mean better than yfz shocks attached on your rappy or warrior than definately, those are too stiff and intended for much longer arms and a different geometry, with more leverage. The yfz setup on a warrior or rappy will put quite a bit of stress on your ball joints from the shocks pushing the arms too far down and out of their intended range of motion.

I've had my yfz shocks on stock a-arms and haven't had a lick of trouble either... I just took a trip to the dunes and gave them a good poundin' and the arms and shocks held up great.

The yfz has the advantage in having better geometry and more travel, but longer arms and aftermarket shocks will definately take you there. As for the the rappy and yfz shocks on the warrior the rappy would be a wiser choice, they are a similar weight and also much closer in width.
