For front shocks you can do the 400ex Z400 or 450r shocks.But you have to have a kit to change the top mount.These shocks are much longer.Also I was told that a 2001 raptor 660 rear shock will bolt in but you have to locate the resevoir some where.Hope this helps.

The 400ex's shocks are pogo sticks, try to find some Z400 or 450 shocks. I have seen a 300EX with a Raptor 660 rear shock.
