UTV Suspension Basics

Ultimate Polaris RZR XP Suspension
There may be some long travel suspension kits available that could improve performance in the desert, but the extra width is not as favorable on tight trails or in the rocks. Plus once you move to a longer arm suspension, custom axles and shocks are required. By staying with the stock geometry, there is more focus on these items from a larger amount of aftermarket accessories manufacturers.
Tuning off road suspension on a daily basis allows us to drive many vehicles with many set ups and different environments. UTV’s, sand cars, super lite, Pro 4 and Trophy Truck are just a few. So it may be safe to say that we haven’t quite seen it all but surely we are pretty close. With the increase in UTV traffic at the shop there is one thing that we see a lot that is a serious issue people should know about. Wheel offset and tire height.
The Reflex kit comes with everything you need to do the install, the system is bolt on, with no welding required, and can easily be installed with basic tools. Removing and replacing axles, might be the only complicated part about the installation. The kit isn’t limited to certain aftermarket parts either; the system works with any OEM replacement parts. The system is supplied with (4) 4340 chromoly heavy duty axles, but utilizes your stock shocks, a-arms, CV’s, radius rods and tie rods.
