I know this topic has been posted on here many times but it seems like I keep coming up with the same answer, nada. I can't really afford a nice set of works right now so I am looking to find a alternative oem shock for the rear, the rear I have now is way to soft and leaking and doesn't look like a good candidate for rebuilding. I've looked at a couple buddies quads and on ebay for cheap shocks that look like they might fit. I figure if I could get a used rear for $50 or so I would be doing all right and if it doesn't fit, oh well. I'm not sure the length of any of these shocks but it looks like maybe(big maybe) A predator 500 Fox might work, saw one with a Buy It Now for $65 shipped. Anyone know where I could find out the length of this and other shocks? The stocker is something like 15" correct?? Also a buddies raptor 660 with remote rezzy looks like it might fit although it seems a little long. Anyone tried anything other than the z400 on the newer lt's??

Here is a link from works website, it tells all of the lengths. Then the only thing you would have to worry about is if the ends dont fit in the swinger and rear pivot. But you could always ballpark the length.


As you can see, the stock length for front is 12.38" and rear is 15.00"

My rear shock is shot also, I have been keeping my eye out for a works on eBay. But I am considering going with a slightly longer shock from something else because I can reduce the length of the my dura blue rear strut.

You said that was a banshee shock, was it stock or something else.

Either way, its good to know. I dont run an airbox, so I shouldn't have to worry about clearance.
