glad you found what you needed, welcome to the club.
Sounds like a good deal on the shocks, that's about what I gave for my ds450 shocks. And anything is a nice improvement over the stock shocks.The 450r shocks i believe are direct bolt-ons, but they lower the quad just a little too much for the riding I do (mostly Hatfield Mccoy and Pa). The LTR shocks are said only to lower the front 1/2in. The front reservoirs do look a little funny, but you cant see them when your riding so who cares. I got them off a guy on ltr450hq, he said he had another pair in white but with some overspray on the springs (he told me 125 shipped for those).
