They'll fit... just depends on the length of the shocks to be set up properly

Even if they did fit, you'd probably need to get them re-valved and set up for the weight of your quad and you... different springs? Shocks that are set up for a lighter quad and rider will be way soft for something heavier. Add that cost to the shocks and see what the real cost is.

They should fit the front, shouldn't they????....

The Axis shocks I had before were from a 450R, and they fit... They just weren't set up right...

Depends on the a arms. Most 450r LT shocks are around 20" and standard length are 16.5". He would have to measure them.

I saw them on Craigslist and was wondering if they would fit. For 300 buck I figured it might not be too bad of a deal. But if they are for a lighter rider I would have to get them revalved and set up for me. I am 6ft 220lbs...so I guess I would have to get them worked on..but if your a lighter rider they might work for you...I e-mailed the guy and will see what he says..thanks guys !!
