I have an 06 500 ss for the mrs. She came off an 02 Mxz Adrenalin with HPG Shocks. Well, this 500 ss only has oil motion control shocks. I would like to upgrade to some HPG Shocks. The ride height has been lowered on the 06's by about an 1.5" or so. Question is: Can I get away with putting 03-05 HPG Shocks on or will it not work? I know the shocks are different length, but I am just curious to see if I can do it or not. Of course, the dealer has already told me "it won't work" just to get my money for some new HPG's I am sure, but I would like to save a few bucks by putting some "gently used" shocks on. Would like to know if anybody has tried it or not and why. Any/All input and advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a bunch.

I had the same problem w/my motion ctl shocks.I got lucky and the fronts leaked oil so they warrantied them I payed the difference for the Adreneline shocks,huge diff but the rear still bothered me so I gave that sled to my wife and baught a 500SS adreneline for me much more happy.If you put sc3 shocks on the front you will raise the sled I don't know about the rear.There are a pair of rear sc4 adreneline shocks in classifieds link for b/o saw them yesterday those shocks plus warranty the fronts and upgrade like I did and I think you will be happier.Plus thats more economical I think.
