Is the dampening gone or is it just the springs? If it is just the springs you could put spacers under the spring. How old are your HL springs?

I have almost made my decision after looking at all the different shocks I am going to go with Works shocks. So far res in rear and no res in front just not sure I want to spend that all at once thinking of doing just the rear frist and see how that goes. Had a pair of non res in the front of my Banshee and loved them.

When I phoned Elka, They said for trail riding you should get the rebound dampening shocks for the rear but not for the front. The remote resovoirs can be added after if you want.

I have Works Performance shocks on my Grizzly and love 'em. Cost me about $700 for all four about two years ago. Includes dual-rate springs with adjustable preload and the ARS spring rate adjustment lever. Love 'em.

Rob, do the works help for jumping? I know this thing ain't no YFZ, but I'd like to be able to jump around 5 ft, flat land. Now I feel like I have to check the frame for cracks every time I hit a little jump. The rears aren't too bad, but the fronts bottom very easily. Sometimes I forget I'm not on a sport machine.

I wouldn't know about jumping, since I don't jump... but I would guess that with the preload turned up, it would handle it just fine.

When you order the shocks, they ask you for details about your weight, your riding style, and so on, so they can valve the shocks properly and choose the right springs.

I thought you were selling it. If you keep spending the money you won't be able to afford to sell it. lol . If you don't mind me askin' , how much $$$$? (for the shocks only- not the quad) Nice to hear that service is top notch, it says alot about the product.
