Shock Therapy, suspension tuning done right!
08/27/18 at 21:53:15
 
I wanted to take a moment to give credit where credit is due.  I've been offroading pretty much my whole life.  40+ years of back country exploring, and lots of desert racing, in 5 different vehicle classes, with my first Hare & Hound National trophy, and my last Hare & Hound National trophy being thirty years apart.  I've always been sort of a suspension nut, and early on discovered that a well set up suspension is what makes an off road vehicle truly perform to its potential.  I've tried lots of aftermarket suspensions over the years, such as Fox, Ohlins, Elka, Exit, White Bros, White Power, etc.  Some were good, some weren't so good, and others broke.

My last experience in suspension tuning has been sending the Fox RC2 bypass shocks on my Maverick X3 to Shock Therapy to have their Ride Improvement System installed.  They install new custom bypass tubes that have many more bypass ports in different locations, bypass valve stacks, bleed holes and use a completely different piston and valving to complement the new bypass tubes.  Then new Eibach springs are used, with a true dual rate that is set up for your vehicle and weight.  The difference is amazing.  This is the plushest, yet best controlled off road vehicle I've ever driven.  Every bump, anywhere, at any speed is taken perfectly.  This totally transformed my X3, and it feels like a poor man's trophy truck.  

So this is a shout out to Shock Therapy.  It is nice to have a company that does things right.

Amen, I found the same results with my Polaris XP1000.  Great shocks and a great company to deal with.
