TRX450R shocks are shorter than the 700xx shocks. This will help lower your front end and the ride quality will be better than stock.

Haha, I should have said best OEM replacement. I know overall they aren't the best by a long shot.

What about Polaris Predator front shocks? I think I read somewhere they are a direct bolt on?

I have a set on mine. I got a set of upper plastic bushings from ATV & MX SERVICE. Was still a pretty tight fit on the top.
They are also a little shorter than the 700xx shocks.

Awesome, thanks for the info on that.

I ended up getting a set of DS450 for a really good price today so I'm just going to modify myself. Thanks for all the input everyone!
