Check ebay. They can be found for a decent price if your patient and make sure to check overall quality and age before buying. They came stock on the Polaris Predators, Outlaws and a few more ATVs IIRC. I think I paid less than $150 for the pair.

@NCPW i got some Polaris sportsman 550 shocks for the front and they are amazing with the difference. About to do the back next and was thinking about the sportsman 850 shocks. I have a seat kit on the back and sometimes have adults riding back there. What do you think?? Be stiff enough??

I have the preload set a little soft right now and they work great with the amount of weight I normally carry (2 adults and 2 small children) while having a soft ride with little body roll. I have confidence that there's plenty adjustment left to stiffen them up enough to support whatever weight I would tow/carry. IIRC the spring rate is 125lbs.

Couple of questions (not trying to sideline this thread):

1--What model Fox Podium shocks did you get?
2--Will Fox Podium shocks fit the standard EZ-GO txt frame?

Thanks!

Honestly I think the 700 might be good for you. 850 might be kinda stiff.

I can work a deal out with you for my 700 shocks if you want. They're just collecting dust in my workshop right now.

1 -- They came off a 2006 Polaris Outlaw 525. They're the front coilovers.

2 -- I'm not sure if they'd fit stock locations on the TXT without any modifications. But I can give you the overall length from eye to eye if you want.

NCPW I just skimmed through this whole thread. Never had any need to look in the lithium section.

Wow! Fantastic work!

Want to dm me and we can talk it out?? Didnít want to spend a lot and be disappointed on the setup. New baby here and budget is a little slim haha. He likes riding the golf cart. Makes him go to sleep. Just trying to make it a little more comfortable for him and the wife!
