I want to get enough lift to clear 27" or 26" tires, so what shocks should I run to clear those. I hears about rancher 350's and Brute Force 750's. I am trying to avoid a lift and just put bigger shocks. I also need to figure out what tire would be best for my bike, i use it for hunting but we have some deep areas. Im planning on snorkling it and a jet kit and maybe a few other things. Looking for suggestions. Thanks

300EX shocks would clear 26's fine. Maybe 27's. I'm clearing 28's on my 94 with a 1.5" lift kit and hockey puck spacers on the shocks, fenders are zip tied to my floorboards...

Is the 300ex rear shock adjustable in any way?

Ouch! At that price it can stay on the store shelf haha. I may look out for an ex shock for my fw, the stock item is great around the farm but to firm when playing around at the off-road park. Be nice to have the option of adjusting it.

Haha that's funny because I find the stock one way too soft and was looking for something firmer. If your looking for something just for the better ride and adjustability but don't want a lift check out the 300FW shocks from Bronco and Progressive. The progressive has a really nice ride with 5 preload settings, Bronco is more similar to OEM but has threaded preload adjustment, at least on their front shocks not 100% sure on the rear as I haven't bought one yet.

Haha. I just find it tends to feel like the back end is crashing over things rather than flowing. Yeh that would have been a small issue using the 300ex shock, having to alter the lift again to suit.
I'll check those out on bronco, thanks Mac
