Fox UTV Shocks
Fox shocks are a top of the line UTV shock builder and have been in business a long time.
The most used shock for the Polaris XPT series with their 2.5” front Internal Bypass Shock & 3.0” rear internal bypass shock
Can-Am X3 is using the internal bypass shocks 2.5 series with compression and rebound adjustments I really like the multiple adjustments and one should not be scared about adjusting them.
The internal bypass shock came out in 2016 on the Polaris RZR XPT line and created some need for expensive rebuild tools just for these shocks, after waiting months to get Fox to release the specialty tools I invested and have now started rebuilding these shocks.
These shocks are great for rebuilding and have a very long life span if manufacture recommended service is a regular part of your shock maintenance plan.
About the only way you destroy one of their shocks is to crash and bend the shaft and even then it can be repaired.
When a UTV manufacturer goes to Fox and has them build shocks for a particular brand and model Fox has a maximum dollar amount that can be spent on the particular shock along with they will have to be built for a general all-around purpose to fit a variety of driving styles and conditions.
With this being said when you buy your UTV and you have certain driving styles and your particular rides you take it on, there is a lot of changes and valving that can be done to fit your own style of driving.
This includes spring changes, valving, rebuilding with new fluid and seals. Dual rate springs with collars.
Fox recommends servicing your UTV shocks every year or 1500 miles this is what it will take to keep your shocks great for many years to come.
I believe Fox is one of the best shocks on the market and are a great shock especially if you service it according to their specifications.
Seals, springs, Fluid all wear and will go bad making your shock sag, cavitation in the fluid. Nitrogen will pass into the fluid through worn-out seals etc.
