It corners so much better and takes some of the lean out of it in turns. I think the 4 seat has more body roll than the 2 seat but I think you would like it. I have a complete set of stock width 300M Summers brothers axles with cv joints and boots for sale if you are interested, they have never been used. I was going to go the route you did then decided to go long travel so these just sit. They were put together by Summers brothers

3 inch fox rear 2.5 front off of a turbo rzr. Average about 1500 for all 4. Keep a eye on UTV parts in the classified on this site. I bought mine off of here. Good luck

Yes they do, a slight spring difference but the shocks are the same. Wayne from FOX told me the 16 Turbo shocks are a nightmare to take apart because all parts were lock tighted together. I bought my springs from shock therapy and just sent my shocks to them today to get their shock set up . I will let you know how they work. Wayne changed some shims but shock therapy does internal work not just valving. I have seen a couple with their set up and they looked very good in the desert taking the cross grain in Laughlin full tilt.. Mine was close and fast but if I can get more out of it its worth it to me

I talked to the guy at shock therapy and sounded they new their stuff pretty good. He also said a tricked out RZR is not as good as a X3 with with springs and a few tweaks. They do a lot of tuning on both. He also said 4 seater is the way to go. Never any issue of bottoming out. I think we will keep the Rzr and put some shocks and arms on it but also get a X3 max RS

RZR XP Turbo with a good long travel kit is right there. It's splitting hairs. But Polaris parts are more readily available. The X3 is bad ass though.

I can vouch for the long travel, worlds away from stock. I agree, shock therapy I think has got a lot to offer. My shocks got there today so soon I will let you know how much difference there is. Mize well have the best of both worlds if money is burning a hole in your pocket lol, When my friend gets his x3 max fixed I look forward to driving it. The max does have more room in the back forsure but I really like the seat position in the rzr. I cant lay back and drive

How much does a long travel kit cost? Seems like you would need UCAs, LCAs, axles, tie rods, brake lines etc front and back.

Aren't most of the off the shelf UTVs pulling 20+ inches of front and rear travel now anyhow??? How much are they getting with a Long Travel kit and how much better do they ride with it???

Is it really necessary at all? Or is it more of a status symbol???

The x3 is the only one I know of that gets those kind of numbers stock. I just looked at a lone star kit for the xp1000 that widens the car to 70" or so and gets it to 20" they say. The kit is $4300 with axles.

10-4, I hadn't looked recently but it seemed like I had heard numbers like that thrown around. I see that a stock RZRXP Turbo is listed with 16F/20R travel...2018 Polaris RZR XP Turbo EPS SxS | Polaris RZR

Still not bad at all...
