Any MXZ rev or zx chassis shock will work. Summit shocks will be too short incase you werent sure. I had the X shocks on my sled and they were a great upgrade but i sold them to buy floats. Good luck

unless you are a really aggresive rider I think the adrenilin shocks are great for a whole lot less money.my buddy has a zx 800x and they are just to stiff for 150 to 200 mile rides I like my adrenilin shocks better

anyone else have any input on this statement? are the x-package shocks too stiff for 150 mile ride in a day? i was thinkin about upgradin to the x-package but i put on a lot of miles per day.

Just loosen up the springs and they are great. I liked them alot but wanted to try the fox floats. If you ride hard the X shocks are the answer.

sooo in your experience/opinion how were the x-shocks on a 150 mile ride? i ride pretty hard, i'd say as aggressive or more aggressive than anyone else i ride with.

thanks!

Then you will love them. I ride hard and hit every jump I see and they just took it. I promise over the stock shocks they will be 200% better. Thats also coming off the stock motion controls.

All things being equal buy the X package shocks. You can re-valve them to the Adrenaline shock specs. anyway, and the front piggybacks just look cool. They have more oil capacity, too. I really don't think an SC 10 2 is much of a joy on 150 to 200 mile trips anyway, regardless of which shocks are under it. I have the X shocks on the front; an M10 shoved under the rear. An SC 10 3 would probably be a decent upgrade, and after selling your old skid you probably wouldn't be out much more $$$.

is there really much of a difference between the sc-10 II and the sc-10 III? i see that some people are interested in buying a sc10 II on here for around $200 so i could sell mine and, like you said, not be out much more for a sc 10 III.

thanks for your input.

Really don't know much about an SC 10 3, except that it has more travel. Only ridden them in Rev's, so it's not an apples to apples comparison. I know BellevilleMXZ went from an SC 10 2 to a 3, you might want to find him in the Members section and PM him. If you could find a 3 with the X package or Adrenaline shocks, and not pay much more than you could sell your skid for, you'd have the shocks plus any advantages of the 3 for a couple hundred bucks, give or take.

I just put an SC10II in my wifes 98 formula 500. Big improvement over the SC 10.
I also just put HPG's in my 02 MXZ 600 Trail (SC10III). The SC10III is a 12 inch suspension while the SC10II is only 10 inches. They have a diff rear mounting location. I also put HPGs from an 01 MXZ on my skis. I lost an inch of travel doing so, but the performance is much better.
The trail shocks suck. They don't last long and are not rebuildable.
