WONDERING IF ITS WORTH BUYING THE SHOCK THERAPY KIT? I HAVE ALREADY LOST 4.5 INCHES OF RIDE HIEGHT AND ADJUSTED THE STOCK SHOCKS TO THE MAX RECOMMENDATION IN THE BOOK. I COULD GO KRENK THE REARS MORE BUT AT A 1 TO 1 RATIO I WILL NEVER GET IT BACK TO STOCK. I HAVE LOTS OF SHIT ON THE MACHINE, SPARE TIRE AND KAWI RACK, SUPER ATV TAIL GATE AND I CARRY A COOLER AND TOOLS AND GAS......etc, ARE THEY REALLY WORTH $650,, WILL I GET BACK TO 14.5 INCHES OF RIDE HIEGHT????

Oh.. and you’ll want a set of spring compressors.

I first bought these and used them to put them on.

Then I bought this one and made life much easier

And instead of buying the $200 ST crossover silencers..
Buy these and add them while you have the springs off.

My Springs sagged after just 500 miles. Installed Shock Therapy spring on it Saturday. Big difference in ride, even more plush than stock, Going to call for a re-valve on the first, they are two and a half months out for appointments.

When I went to Shock Therapy to pick up my springs I got 4 of their rubber O rings and just slipped them on the Kawasaki cross overs, so far they are working, no noise from the suspension..

I bought the crossover silencers off eBay and installed them without any spring compressor. So far they have eliminated the clanking noise from the crossovers hitting and seem to be holding up ok.
When I installed them I added 1'' more of pre-load to the springs and setting at about 15 1/2'' of ride height. :cool:

How much can I crank down on the tinder spring? I have kept it at the recommended 4" space, can I go more, will that raise the rear?

As much as you have room.. but realistically you’re going to need springs if you’re at this point.
